Band points are simply bands that you have worked individual current dxcc entities.
If you have worked England on 80, 40, 20 & 6 meters... that counts as 4 challenge points. Let's say you worked Germany on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15 and 10 meters.. that is 7 challenge points. Put the two together and you have 11 challenge points. Of course you need them all confirmed via qsl or lotw.
It is not mode specific.. working germany on 40 meter phone, cw and data will still count as one band-point.
Big DX contests are good ways to up your tally. I also watch the dx clusters.
