Operate Multiple Concurrent QSO Parties

There are quite a few weekends where there are multiple state/regional QSO parties taking place. For example in  mid-March Louisiana is on Saturday and Oklahoma on Saturday-Sunday of the same weekend. Another example is the weekend following the GQP there are the following five QSO parties: Michigan, South Dakota, Ontario, North Dakota, and Nebraska. Those are only two example weekends where you might want to play in multiple QSO parties. Here is a list of the ones supported by CQ/X:

7-NE-IN-QP AL-MAR-QP LA-OK-QP KS-OH-HI-QP NY-IA-QP
MI-SD-ON-ND-NE-QP GA-NM-MT-QP

Prior to operating one of these contests you should consult this document that contains some helpful notes specific to these contests. To use this feature in each of these multi-QPs you will need version 1.7.9 patched through at least Patch 179-09.If you are outside the target areas of these multi-QPs you can operate in them as if they were a single contest choosing the appropriate multi-QP when starting up. If you are inside a target area you should just choose your target area's QSO party. When you're done you can use menu item File | Split Multi-Contest Log to access the following dialog for preparing the final log for submission to each of the QSO parties.
