Right from the web page cqww.com:

"Only one transmitter and one band permitted during any 10-minute period, 
defined as starting with the first logged QSO on a band."

That means if you make (log) a QSO on a band at 0015z (for example), you 
can not make (log) a QSO on another band until 0025z at the 
*earliest*.  There is a separate 10-minute counter for the run and 
multiplier stations.  I.e. you can consider the run and multiplier logs 
completely independent of each other for the purposes of the 10-minute rule.

Very easy to understand and interpret.
