The rules look good to me except the band change limits.  I'm curious why 
all the interest in
limiting band changes for single ops?  This doesn't seem like a good 
idea.  Instead of
discouraging SO2R with this rule, you should add an unlimited single 
operator category
that has no band change restrictions and allowed to use the 
Packetcluster.  That way
SO2R operators can run at will and not disadvantage single radio 
operators.  If I can only
make 10 band changes using my other radio and be burdened with the 
unfamiliar task of
keeping track of band changes, I'd probably do better fishing that weekend.

Limiting band changes for single operators is a bad idea altogether.  This 
also discourages
moving multipliers from band to band to band to maximize 
multipliers.  Keeping track of
these band changes has got to be a nightmare, even with just a single radio.

I hope the fish are biting that weekend.
