I am glad to see the rule changes to the Sprint! Having competed in
them since the 1st one, ONE tx on the air at a time is OK by me.
I had lost interest in the Sprint when I heard stations on two bands
at once. Don't get me wrong, I agree they are great ops to be able to
handle two TXs, but most other top events did limit a single op to one
TX signal at a time.
The ARRL DX multi single was very trying with the 10 min rule. At
least in the CQ WW you have a mult station. Guess we'll move up to 2
TX multi-multi next time. When you are only working a new mult on
160, 10 mins can be a long time.
The ICOM IC-765 is a great rig. I only used a 940 in a couple of
multi ops. I liked the 930s before I got the 765s. The 765 has a
great receiver which is the best reason to own one.
