I need some education here. 2012 Field Day Rule #4 says "no switching
devices..." My first reaction was a "switch" and an "interlock" were the
same thing. Since I'm ignorant of the old WRTC rules and the history of
"switching devices" used in Field Day (or any other contest), I thought
it best to ask as I'm always open for an education and history lesson!
Here is Field Day Rule #4...
 "4. Entry Categories: 
Field Day entries are classified according to the maximum number of
simultaneously transmitted signals, followed by a designator indicating
the nature of their individual or group participation. Twenty (20)
transmitters maximum are eligible for the purpose of calculating bonus
points  (2,000 points maximum). However, additional transmitters may be
used simultaneously in determining your entry category. Switching and
simulcasting devices are prohibited."

We decided that we would make this a multi-single 1E entry using two
K3's at
N6WIN's home QTH. We would use two K3's with interlock hardware (old
style) to test our teamwork skills.
