Exactly. The hour is defined as n:00 through and including n:59. Six
changes in that period. NOTHING to do with the clock, other than the
definition of the hour. You can go 50 minutes on a run on twenty and
then go 40, 10, 15, 80, 160 and back to 20 in the last ten minutes.
Band change count is already there.

What's going on here ? There is a 6 band change/hour rule for M/S in
DX. No need to keep track of any 10 minute clock. TR already handles
band change/hour rule just fine by setting the HOUR DISPLAY to BAND
