I've been there and done that, and it seems more confusing to me than
helpful.  I used a single VFO to control two Ten-Tec transceivers on 40M
20M simultaneously and was always wondering which way to turn the knob
the desired signal.

I'm now using a pair of Omni VIs, which use the same conversion scheme
on all
bands...much less confusing.  I think using two identical radios is he
way to go for two radio contesting.
