Bob is correct - you can't P, you can only S.  But this does not change the 
information offered.

The only change in recent years to the IARU multi-op rules ("regular" 
entries, not including HQ club stations, for you nit pickers) has been to 
change from a "ten-minute rule" to "bandchanges per hour", and I believe 
that a mode change is now treated the same as a band change.  The essence 
of the rules have not changed - it's a true multi-single, with only one 
transmitted signal allowed and restrictions on bandchanging.
