EU stations: all first digits must work once.
DX stations: may multiply the number of points by 2.

JOKER: If you worked and confirmed PA6DIG during the jubilee period of the 4th anniversary at the start of 2004 , you may use the QSL card from PA6DIG as a joker for a missing first digit. If, for example, you fail 5 as the first digit, you can use PA6DIG for this, the card then counts for 5000 points.
