On radio 2 I think all you can do now is SEARCH but not pounce if I read
the rules correctly. It has been a few years since I did a multi in IARU
and it seems the rules have changed a bit. To me, the best you can do with
a 2nd radio is map a band and be ready to take over when the radio 1 op
gives it to you. IF I am incorrect on this let me know.
And yes, intrastation band mapping is something that I brought up about a
year ago........that would be good.
See you all this weekend.
