Subject: Two-radio operation in SS -- legal?

I have always assumed that using two radios in the SS is perfectly
legal, as long as you have just one signal on the air at a time.  But
then someone told me they had come to a different conclusion, so I
re-read rule 6C:

  "The use of two or more transmitters simultaneously is not allowed."

Indeed, this wording is so vague that one could argue that adjusting
the frequency of a second transmitter, or tuning it up, or having it
in "standby" mode, all constitutes "use of two or more transmitters
simultaneously," and violates the rules.  It could also mean that
multi-single stations are not allowed to have two operators using two
rigs simultaneously on different bands, alternating between them,
because even if they are careful not to transmit simultaneously, both
transmitters are being "used" simultaneously.  Without definitions
of the words "use" and "transmitters," it is hard to know what was

So Billy, KR1R, how do you interpret this rule?  Since the present
rule can be interpreted either way, it really wouldn't be fair to
disqualify anyone until the rule can be clarified.  Whatever you tell
us probably shouldn't apply until the 1994 SS.

Let's suppose the intent is to prevent simultaneous transmission on
more than one frequency at a time.  If that is the case, then someday
someone might try a very high speed pulse switching system, so that
technically, in any one microsecond, there is only one signal on the
air at a time.  Would that be legal in SS?  (I don't really know if
this is practical with today's technology, so the question may be

Before everyone argues pro or con, let's give KR1R a chance to respond.
