Nice research work, Brett!
This certainly calls the intentions of the OP (op and original poster) into
question, but I don't think it changes the fact that the ARRL rules are not
clear when it comes to operating Single-Op or Multi-Op under superior
privileges of a station control operator.
If ARRL is going to be a stickler about the presence of a control operator
turning an operation into multi-op, then I think they need to crack down on
multi-ops where operators exceed their own privileges when the control
operator is out of the room. That common practice is a clear violation of
FCC rules. Can't have it both ways.
