    No. Similarily They should be not be allowed to have a QRO or semi-QRO
friend or accomplice call a station and then ask that station to "listen
for" the lesser powered station. This happens to me regularly when I'm
running Europe.

      Yes. If that band is so worked out that the station has time to
cruise the other bands looking for mults to move to the desired band, then
the additional activity on the currently propagated band will be helpful
to the contest overall.
