How to Use Multi-Flex with Single 6600M for Multi-op Contesting?

I have been playing around with Multi-Flex with Version 3.1.7 and my Flex 6600M.  I got to wondering if anyone is doing any Multi-Op contesting with a single Flex 6600M and operators at two locations.  I realize that Multi-2 or Multi-Multi would not be practical because two slices cannot transmit at once.  I guess Multi-Single would be possible recognizing, of course, the limitation on band changes per hour.  Perhaps a casual Multi-Single operations where the ops at both ends just take turns using the 6600M.  I was wondering what other have done?  A couple specific questions I have are:  1) How do ops at both ends keep track of when the other is transmitting and 2) How is computer logging handled (i.e how do the operators at both ends get access to the logging program?)  Seems like that would be necessary for dupe checking.

It seems like there is a real opportunity here for clubs to set up a number of Multi-ops perhaps with some newer contesters paired up with a veteran with a 6600M.


Just wondering what others have done.

You can only SEE  a red XMIT button when the other transmits. I am not aware how ( maybe with dax ) you listen to the other slice  xmit audio. Logging should be OK as you can attach separate CAT channels to each OP ́s PC. For em it would look OK at one location but at separate locations i think synching xmit is not easy ( skype watching the other OP maybe ? )
