5.2.1Multi person double unit: limited to low power (no more than 100W) full band, allowing two bands to operate at the same time, but each band can only have one transmission signal at the same time.

6.Exchange:

For contest CQ we recommend CQ WAPC.

6.1Non-Chinese station: signal report with QSO number, start from 001. e.g. 59(9) 001.

6.2Chinese station: signal report with a two character shorthand for the Chinese provinces, municipal cities, autonomous regions, and special administration regions, e.g. 59(9) BJ.

See appendix for list of the Chinese provinces, municipal cities, autonomous regions, and special administration regions.(from GB/T2260-2007)
