Exactly right. One transmitter at any time. The rules changed. You can
have as many receivers as you like.
As you know, SO2R is a very broad subject but you should be able to
use your M2 filtering system for your M1 station which should allow
for running on say 20m whilst spotting (or working) on say 15m, just
don't transmit on both at the same time.
Ps - what filtering are you using?
