Each point counts on each mode on the same band.
Note - Only one contact per mode is allowed on each band with the same station. E.g. A "Voice" mode contact can only be made once per band with the same station. SSB or FM can be used for the contact, but points cannot be claimed for an SSB and an FM contact with the same station.
Similarly on digital, any digital mode can be used to make a digital mode contact with the same station, but points cannot be claimed for more than one digital mode with the same station.
* WORLDWIDE stations can only claim multipliers for DXCC entities within the SEANET Region - See entity list above.
* SEANET stations can claim multipliers for DXCC entities WORLDWIDE including the SEANET Region and own country.
Each multiplier counts once on each band (not mode).
The total number of QSO points times the total number of multipliers worked.
Contacts on cross modes or
cross bands will not count. Operators are not allowed to transmit two or more
signals at the same time on the same band.
