(sic) means I'm quoting your original spelling - which was not intended to
be critical - I actually enjoy such variations of interpretations from
those who do not speak English as their first language.
I apologize for causing any distress, none was intended.
The bottom line is that there is no category that allows for two stations
to submit two entries using the same callsign. If they must use the same
callsign from the club station, they should join together and do multi-2.
Again, sorry for not being more clear and I did not intend to offend you.

>> This is called "Multi-Two" or "Multi-Operator, Two Transmitter".
>> Here's what you "mist" (sic):
>> 2.3.2.Multioperator, Two Transmitter:
>> 188.8.131.52.A maximum of two transmitted signals at any given time, on
>> different bands.
>> 184.108.40.206.Each transmitter is limited to 6 band changes (maximum) in any
>> clock hour. Unused band changes from radio one may not be transferred to
>> radio two.
>> 220.127.116.11.1.The clock hour is from zero through 59 minutes.
>> 18.104.22.168.2.Band changes are defined so that, for example, a change from
>> meters to 40 meters and then back to 20 meters constitutes two band
>> 22.214.171.124.3.Violation of the 6-band change rule or improper logging will
>> result in an entry reclassification to the Multioperator
>> 126.96.36.199.Both transmitters may work any and all stations; the second
>> transmitter is not limited to working new multipliers only. However, a
>> station may only be worked once per band regardless of which transmitter
>> is used.
>> 188.8.131.52.Each of the two transmitters must keep a separate, chronological
>> log for the entire contest period.
>> 184.108.40.206.The Cabrillo log must indicate which transmitter made each QSO
>> this category.
