[CQ-Contest] Rules Question M2 CQ WW

I did an M2 at NQ4I a couple of years ago.  We had two radios per band, and
a total of six radios.  Two radios per band interlocked - only one could
transmit at a time (hardware interlock).  One run radio, one mult radio.

When we did a band change - say "radio 1" was going from 10 to 20 meters.
We would stop TX on 10 meters, designate 20 meters as "radio 1", and away
we went with a different pair of radios.  That was one band change.

With M2, you are assisted - allowed to look at the cluster.  We could line
up 20 meter mults, ready to go when TX moved to 20.  Once we worked a bunch
of mults of 20, we could then move back to 10 meters (ie radio 1), and this
counted as band change # 2 for radio 1.

This activity was independent of what "radio 2" was doing.

The TX must be identified in the Cabrillo log file - radio 1 or radio 2.
Logging software takes care of this.

Does this help?
