– The call areas of USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia (for example, VE3, VE6, W5, JA1, etc,)

NOTES:
1) The Multipliers count once per band.

2) The first contact made with W, VK, VE, and JA, is a double multiplier, since it counts both as EADX entity and also call area.

3) The first contact made with EA, EA6, EA8, and EA9, is a double multiplier, since it counts both as an EADX entity and also a province.
Final score: The sum of the points obtained, multiplied by the sum of all the multipliers obtained on all bands.
