In addition to the following rules sent by Steve, VK6VZ for the Pacific
160 Metres Contest, I found the following on the ARRL Web site for the
"To avoid QRM between modes stations are asked to operate in 15 minute
blocks--CW on the hour and hour + 30 minutes; SSB on the hour + 15
minutes and hour + 45 minutes. "
