I'm not sure if that is allowed. The rules also state:

      You are not allowed a second radio that works only multipliers.

That said, I don't how a sponsor is able to determine weather the contact was made by a second transceiver or the second VFO of the main transceiver.

Furthermore, as long as that second radio also works non mult's, this should be just fine.

The use of a second radio on the same band/mode maybe be legit but I get the impression that this is not the intention of the contest sponsor.

The way I see it, as far as the rules go, there is some room for improvement.
