[CQ-Contest] M/S rule in ARRL DX

ARRL M/S is definitely a lower-stress kind of operation. When we have 3 or 4 
ops available, we feel overstaffed in that category. If we had our interstation 
interference situation under control here, I think we'd be more likely to try 
M/2 in ARRL.

Which makes it great for a two man expedition like AC8W and I do.  You
don't really have to worry about the second station and/or antennas
for it.
