But what if KKN (on Band B above) asks for a repeat?  I suppose you
just hit the "repeat" button on your whatever while simultanously
working one of the people who answer your CQ, huh?

Call me naive, I never realized there were people out there doing
this stuff.   No wonder I never win (actually I think it would
slow me down even more...).

In the Sprint, nearly everyone is on the same band at any given
time, so it's not obvious that being able to operate two bands
would be that useful anyway.

Can you do this in everyday operating - i.e. call CQ simultaneously
on 2, 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30, 40, 80 and 160?   I guess there is
nothing in the rules to prevent it (M/M stations obviously do it
legally in contests).   Can you transmit several signals on one
band in everyday life - e.g. CQ every 2 KHz at the same time?

The naive mind boggles.
