In arrl hf contests there is no multiplier exception to the m/s rule.  m/s
stations can have only 1 signal at a time, and only 6 band changes in a
clock hour.  So if you change bands to work a multiplier then change back
that counts as 2 band changes, there is no time limit for how long you have
to remain on the other band though.

To figure this out you have to read the 'general rules for hf contests' at:
