I was confused by this also when the "General Rules" were first
I contacted Billy Lunt at the ARRL and discussed the situation (at least
reference to multi-ops). Billy assused me that there was no intention
changing the SS multi-op rules with the addition of a "six band change
rule. He indicated the official SS rules would over-ride the "General
and allow unlimited band changes.
I'm concerned that this issue will not be clarified in the SS Rules.
lead to some participates following the "written" rule and others
the "intended" rule.
I guess a clarification is in order!
