It doesn't matter what rule change, etc, you make.  If people
want to cheat, they are going to cheat!!  That's all there is to
that.  I think some people hire an attorney to study the rules so
they can find some kind of loophole to cheat legally (an
oxymoron).  It seems as all you need are 4 rules:

1.  Don't run more than the legal power
2.  Don't have more than one signal on the air at one time or
you     are a multi station.
3.  Don't switch bands (or modes) less than 10 minutes after
you      come onto a band or you are a multi station.
4.  If the contest doesn't have a multi classification,
violation     of rules 2 or 3 means disqualification.

Ain't that simple?  Why do we need 2 pages of rules to operate a
contest?  I guess I just live in a dream world :-)  73
