That way I see/feel about it is that once you start operating, you call
should appear on the contest roster (and in this case, calls are associated
with names, so you name would be represented).
Therefore, if I was operating in a m/m, using the technique that a m/s
supposedly used, there would be nothing to stop me from, on a seperate
cruising the bands with my personal call and asking stations to QSY. There
would be no limit to this!
So, if you call appears on the list of operators you better make damn sure it
doesn't appear in someone else's log (unless the station you are operating from
is using your call.) The only exception to this rule is if you were able to
change countries in the middle of the contest.

Well, I was afraid using the strong language in my last posting might
bring about some emotion (or maybe that was my intent).
Thanks to all of you who have sent me your personal comments. It seems that
EVERYONE who sent me a comment is in total agreement that this technique
should not be allowed.
So there you go!! Here is a case where maybe we can apply some peer
pressure. Be it resolved that the amateur radio contesting fraternity
frowns on using a second call to move multipliers when you are multi-single
and we think that the PJ1B operation should either remove any q
mults that were made this way, or classify itself as multi-multi.
Are there any PJ1B ops out there that can respond to this????

I agree with Tree's colorful response, because all the M/S
station is doing is circumventing a rule (10 minute) and
maybe breaking another (different calls, same transmitter???).
However, this is just the voice of a peanut-whistle
contester....73, Tom WB4IUX

That technique of asking a station to move using a different call is
pure bullshit!! The log easily should be multi-multi. This is my
personal opinion and does not reflect the opinion of the CQ contest
group (not yet anyhow).
