[CQ-Contest] M/2 Rule

There is no 'exception' for m/2 as there is for m/1 about working mults so I
would say no... going to another band and back to a run would be 2 band
changes for one of the two transmitters.  Flexibility and accounting for
band changes is important in that class as you can make just so many changes
to other bands per hour with each transmitter, so if you are say running on
20m and 40m and there are mults on 80m you need you could work some on each
of the transmitters if you antenna switching allows them both to use 80m (at
different times of course)... of course once you go to a band you aren't
limited to just working mults in m/2 since both transmitters can work anyone
so it pays to work not only the mults but any other stations you can before
switching to another band again.  This is actually a very nice class if you
have enough antennas for 2 transmitters but not enough for 3 or more and
have a couple ops who like to run a lot.
