I guess I'm still confused. I got answers on both sides, and 
nothing definitive yet.

Here are the responses to date:

what I spend on this hobby, it might as well be)

There is no specific mention of this as you cite.

There is, however, the following regarding IARU:

>>4.2. Multi Operator, Single Transmitter, Mixed Mode only

>>4.2.1. Must remain on a band *and mode* for at least 10 
minutes before
changing bands or modes. The ten-minute period begins with 
your first QSO on
the new band or mode.
>>4.2.2. Only one transmitted signal is allowed at any given 

(I added the asterisks)

I would suspect that the logic shown here would apply to the 
10 meter
contest as well.  Otherwise, you could conceivably run on 
both modes at the
same time with a sophisticated interlock system.

It will be interesting to see what N1ND says.

what do the rules say?  I suspect that in m/m you can switch 
all you want...geo

Hi Brooke...same rule applies ...a change to cw and back to 
ssb is 2 Rick


I see that ARRL only allows 6 band changes/hour in multi-
single in general. In the 10 meter contest, in a multi op,
can we switch between CW and Phone as many times as we want,

or is there also a limit?

The reason for only 6 band changes is so the multi-op team
won't end up (even unintentionally) start running as a
multi-two in an all band situation, so before you start
changing bands for a mult or two, you need to have the
second station fill up the band map with a bunch to make it
worth the change.

In the Ten Meter Contest there is no mention about mode
changes for multi-op except for having to be mixed mode, so
knock yourself out and bounce back and forth all you want.

See you next week!! BOTH MODES!!!
