Hi John,

This rule change won't make your life easier.

If you run CT in M/M mode you will not have the QSY timers for the mult
stations and you always have to use to same PC (mean Station Number)for the
same band otherwise the numbering will start again from 001 on the other PC.

Using the Partner Mode offers you the only reliable (although very laborous)
way to get the correct serial numbers through to the mult station.
