This definition may not strike a chord with everyone, but my definition of "not 
assisted" is that all information (pertinent to the contest) is gathered and 
developed by a single operator by his own on-the-air efforts and observations 
during the course of the contest.    This definition would obviously exclude 
spotting nets (packet, voice, or internet). 

I don't think it would exclude knowing the realtime score of other 
participants, but it WOULD exclude detailed logs or other running summaries 
which revealed hot bands, mults, or other "strategic intelligence" of other 

His wife bringing him snacks, the electric company delivering KWh, and the 
ionosphere reflecting his signals (or not) would NOT put him in the assisted
