Gee, you panicked me and made me go back and check. There is
no 10 minute rule for single operators, only for Multi-two. There
is no Multi-Multi category in NAQP. See
So, a single-op can make as many band changes as he wants,
to as many bands as he wants! You don't have to stick
around for 10 minutes unless you were a M/2 and then you
have two transmitters, each with a 10 minute rule. You weren't
M/2 unless you were using packet...
More than one person performs transmitting, receiving
and logging functions, etc.
A maximum of two transmitted signals at any given time,
each on a different band. Both transmitters may work
any and all stations.
Shall keep a separate log for each transmitter.
Each transmitter must have at least 10 minutes between
May operate for the entire 12 hours of the contest.
