VA QSO Party

Worked a couple of stations in DC but program says DC is not a valid abbreviation and had to use MD instead. Is this a bug or a feature?

Hi Jim,
 
I assume you must be inside of VA.  Here is the rule:
Multipliers: Multipliers are only counted once, i.e., contacting the same Virginia County, Independent City, State, Province or Country using a different band or mode counts only as a new QSO, not as a new multiplier.
 
DC is not a state and is therefore considered part of the state of MD as far as I can tell.

DC is not a State.  MD is correct.

Usually it is considered a DX country.

Puerto Rico is a separate entity in DXCC terms, therefore a “country.”
