Not sure why this is seen as being so unique. There is a group of hams that regularly works two radios on transmit. I would often do this during events like WAE where one band was very runnable and a second band was opening.

I did not have the stamina to do this on two bands for 48 hours, but folks shouldn't be so shocked that it happens.

Octupus CQ is Octupus CQ no matter one band used or two. It is always
interlocked CQ on two frequences with the difference that M/S has to
do it on the same band with TX/RX antenna separations and few other
issues to prevent interference by 2 ops and SO does it alone on 2
bands. Packet is not involved for both while running anyway.

Great respect to SO guys who can do such style anyway.

Some few years ago when several M/S stations did so (octopus CQs) on
the same band most of the people complained that those guys have taken
too much of the bandwidth, so such CQs were prohibited straight after.

We get it. We totally get it and we think this is ultracool to watch. At
least I did.

Fascinating. To us. I just hope nobody shares this video with
non-cons as a way to highlight how much fun contesting can be. Without
the audio, and
to the uninitiated, Dan could look like an actuary frantically
filling in actuarial tables. I don't think a non-ham or non-con would
see this as fun.
(Where are the explosions? How many respawns do you get?)
This is the kind of video that should be reserved for only those
contesters at or beyond Operating Thetan III levels!
Way to go, Dan. It's impressive how calmly you can bang off nearly eight
Qs per minute.

That video is just incredible!
I just wish it had what he was hearing in his headset on the audio.

N6MJ/ZF2MJ blew away the top rate and had an incredible score in last

Those high rates simply show well equipped stations with good operators
who, by virtue of their >LOCATIONS and the SCORING RULES, are really
IN the

So if you were to have operated from a good station in an advantageous
you would have won this last weekend?

RIGHT. Silly me for having one second imagined otherwise...
