Good question Ed.  I was shocked to see it had been eliminated.  I've
written to the CAC but have not received any reply which is frustrating.

If stations what to play so2r, do it in the same band/mode.  If stations
want to play 2 radio with a lockout, do it in the same band/mode.

Perhaps others will support this and bring back the 10 minute rule.  If 10
minutes is too long then make it 5.

If there was a 10 min band change rule for all categories before, why was it
eliminated?  For Field Day, it would seem to make sense.


That rule by itself, would not eliminate 2 transmitters using one band-mode,
interlocked in classic multi-single style.  To eliminate that, there would
need to be additional language if the intent is to prevent that.


Again, I personally don't care what the final rules are, but I see people
posting SO2R results and others showing set ups that look like typical
multi-single operations and none of that should be occurring if the intent
is otherwise.


I remember years ago there being a 10 min type rule and then wondered where
it went.
