Not necessarily, especially if you're passing someone from band to band.  A 
9U from 10m to 15m to 20m then back to  running on 10m is really three band 
changes, not four.

At HC8N M/2 in the CQ-RJ RTTY contest a month ago, we kept track of the 
band changes in our heads.  It was easy because it was only three guys, and 
you can talk during RTTY QSOs ("Hey, we only have one band change 
left.").  Still, it's not an optimal solution.  Post-contest log checking 
for this rule is very easy.  Maybe Ken can add a counter somewhere on the 
CT screen announcing "'n' band changes left this hour."
