8.  Dupe

8.1 Dupes are contacts
made with the same station on the same band and mode. If the first contact
between stations is valid, dupes have 0 points value. If the first contact is
not valid, second (dupe) contact is accepted.

8.2 Dupe contacts are not
penalized; one does not have to mark them in the log submission. Moreover,
entrants are strictly recommended to leave DUPES in the log file. PLEASE DO NOT

9.  Multipliers

Two types of  multipliers are available, provincial and DXCC entity:

Provincial: Each different Chinese

zones, contacted on each band, is counted as one(1) multiplier, despite of the modes
worked. That is, only 34 Chinese provincial multipliers are available on each
band.

DXCC entity: Each different DXCC entity
contacted on each band, is counted as one(1) multiplier, despite of the modes
worked. BY, BV, VR2, XX9, BS7, BQ9 each count as one multiplier.
