Personally, I think the whole HQ thing has gotten out of hand in IARU. While the DA0HQ incident is not completely related, if a change is about to be made to the contest concerning HQ stations, it sh

All of the serious mult-ops have at least one, sometimes 2, receiving stations hunting for mults while they run anyway. The issue is in coordinating working the found mults, not in operating multiple
