Hi Randy,

CQ has in the past placed Tribander Single element scorers in a different 
category say SOAB if the score is BETTER than other SOAB entrants thus 
allowing two bites at the cherry - but with the awarding of trophies it 
doenst seem to flow the same way..

I personally feel you win the category you get the trophy regardless..eg if 
the unimaginable happens and XX0XX entered 40M Single band and scores more 
than anyone they should  win SOAB/ 40M SB/ tribander single element clean 
sweep !
