This is so true. I have often wondered why the CQWW does not have a real
multi-single category. Their M/S category is definitely not a multi-single
no matter what they call it. 

There are many stations that would like to do a multi-op with a friend
without setting up two complete stations and having two sets of antennas.
These stations are discouraged from participanting in the CQWW as a serious
multi-op because of existing CQWW rules.

I don't think we have a prayer of getting a true M/S category in CQWW. it
would be too much work to implement by contest managers who are all unpaid
