AS usual Joe clouds the issue. SO2R is not about changing bands
rapidly. Anyone can flip a switch rapidly.  It is about being able to
listen on another frequency WHILE TRANSMITTING, something a single
radio op can not do. It effectively doubles your operating time, a
HUGE advantage, much like having an amplifier or spotting assistance
or  multiple operators. They have their own class and SO2R should too.
Joe has had this explained to him a zillion times but there is some
kind of mental block operating there. It's like arguing with a rock.
