Limited Rover and ARRL VHF Contesting W2HRY on 3/5/16
It seems to that now that the ARRL UHF contest is no more it seems that Limited Rover will now always be limited to just the 4 lowest VHF (50,144,222 and 440) bands for almost all the VHF contests (January,June, and Sept)
It would be better if Limited Rover would be open to all bands eligible but keep the Low Power requirements or if 4 band limitation is important it should be 4 bands of the operators choosing.
Thoughts?

Portable yet activating 4 grid squares W2HRY on 14/1/16
I am new to VHF contesting and am wrapping up the plans for the 2016 January VHF Contest.
I am planning on competing in Portable (<10W)

I have the opportunity to work from 4 different grid squares, obviously at a 4 grid intersection.
I plan to move at least 100m between locations into each grid square and still be within a 500m diameter of the precise 4 grid intersection. (so I believe I meet all the rules requirements...)

The question...
For the Portable Category it appears there is no Multiplier or benefit to activate more than one grid square.
Is my interpretation correct?
