I think Pete has an excellent idea!  Since multipliers count on 
each band, a few CQ's on a "dead" band like 10 Meters could be 
picked up by Skimmers and draw some action - more fun for

Judging by the commentary recently on various reflectors (and my 
experience last weekend), it is time for NAQP to institute an 
category, rather than lumping all one-transmitter assisted 
stations into
Multi-2.  The M-2 class's band change rule makes zero sense for 
transmitter assisted - I'll be losing credit for some QSOs 
because it
never occurred to me that it would cover a single-transmitter 

ARRL 160 CW and ARRL 10M contests got rid of this anachronism a 
years ago - it's time for NAQP to follow suit.  I don't know who 
such things, but trust that Chris will know who needs to take
