Why not a change the M/S and M2X categories and the logging programs that
Multi-Single - One run station and one multiplier station only. Same QSY rule
for multiplier station that exists now - 8 band changes per hour. Also allow
only 8 band changes per hour for the run station so you can't interleave QSO's
on different bands. Only one radio allowed on run band. Limit of 5 operators in
Mult-2 - Only 2 run stations allowed . No additional radios on the run bands.
Same QSY rule that exists now 8 per station / per hour. One additional
transmitter allowed to work multipliers only. 8 band QSY's per hour allowed.
Limit of 8 operators in this category.
Change logging programs to limit the number of computers you can network based
on your category.
Multi-Single - RUN and MULT
Mult-2 - RUN1 , RUN2 and MULT
Put logic in program that once you enter 10 QSO'S in log it will not let you
edit your category. Allows 10 QSO'S so if you made a mistake and notice it at
the beginning it will let you change it.
For SO and SOA have the logging program create a separate log of what packet
spots you clicked on that include time, band, frequency and packet node you are
connected to. You will submit this to the contest sponsor along with your
CQ-Contest mailing list
