Over the years, I've heard stories about "arrangements" made so that
one doesn't have to leave the operating position when nature calls.
Anyone have further info or experience?
P.S. I try to time my depatures from the operating position when I am
in S&P mode, so I don't unnecessarily tie up a frequency with endless
CQs or the like.

The SS rules state that you can't "simultaneously transmit on more than
one frequency". The dictionary defines "simultaneous" as:
"happening, existing or done at the same time".
I assume that to "transmit" means to emit power from a transmitter. When
I operate two-radio, I am 100% certain I do not "simultaneously transmit"
due to a fool-proof lockout box. I may, however, occupy two frequencies
at the same time...
Interesting discussion; I hope it doesn't lead to more rules, that's
what we don't need more of. Let's let people push the envelope and the
state-of-the-art in contesting and not thwart their efforts with regulations!
