[CQ-Contest] Multi-single CQ WW rules

Since everybody is parsing rules so much and ignoring K3EST's own submission
that a mult station is allowed (how can anyone argue with an authority as
high as that in CQ contests?), I guess I'm going to have to go a find a
TRANSMITTER, maybe an old Viking or Heathkit.

Sad to say, my IC756PRO and TS850SAT are both TRANSCEIVERS!

I knew I never should have sold the Drakes!

73, kelly
