*There is nothing in the rules to cover this - watch the claimed scores
on 3830, then make
your decision based on that. It would only work for Multi Two and
so I don't see where all angst is coming from - the difference between
Multi-Multi is only the number of transmitters. In fact, one could make
a logical argument
that Multi-Two is actually Multi-Multi as the number of transmitters is
great than one. :)
I would also point out that the Contest Committee can make a change in
log status based
on whatever criteria they use to adjudicate that - I have absolutely no
idea of what the
criteria is or would be. If they feel its cheating, then they can make
that decision, but
I honestly don't know how they could based on 3830 reporting.
Lastly, cheating would be operating Low Power and claiming QRP - that's
an unofficial contest scoring information page to gain an advantage
isn't cheating - that's being
smart and taking advantage of the information being presented.
Lastly, the only way to fix it would be to require a category
declaration BEFORE the contest
