This is a "focused" Full Day Of Hell sprint.

You get to work everybody,
but your multipliers are the countries
in North, Central and South Americas. 

GOAL: Attain the highest score using non-WARC bands.
CLASSES: NA QRP, DX QRP, NA QRO, DX QRO, SWL (100 Watt limit for Sprints)
MULTS: Countries worked in North, Central and South America

No bonus points except for the QSO Bonus.

3 qso points for each member QSO plus 
1 qso point for a non-member QSO plus
2 extra qso points for each qrp contact. 
You get QSO points for contacts with the same station on a different band.
Total score = (QSO Points X Multipliers) + Bonus Points
