32 New Multipliers In ARRL 10 Meter Contest!

Hi Folks-

Big news for all you 10 Meter Contest fans: beginning in 2010, the 32 states of Mexico will count as additional multipliers.

The ARRL Programs and Services Committee voted to make this change effective with the 2010 running of the event. We have already heard great enthusiasm from FMRE, the Mexican national amateur radio organization. Based on their response, we should see most — if not all– of the XE states activated for the 2010 10 Meter Contest.

This addition is only for the 10 Meter Contest; it does not affect any other ARRL contest.

The list of Mexican states, along with their official abbreviations, is below:

Note:  Revillagigedo (XF4) will remain a multiplier due to its status as a separate DXCC entity.
