While I don't have any objection to the addition of these categories to 
the contest, I just wanted to point out that there is no restriction on 
single band entries from making QSOs on other bands - as long as that 
actitivity is not used to increase the single band score.  

For example, you should not be setting up skeds with, or moving 
stations you work on another band to work you on the band of your 
single band entry.
