According to the CQ 160 CW rules on the Web
there IS a single op assisted class in this contest. It was added in 2009, and appears in the results listings since then.

Rules III.:

(D) Single Operator Assisted: HIGH POWER ONLY. Same as (A) with the following exception: The use of passive spotting IS allowed. (See definition of passive spotting functions below.)

Passive Spotting is defined as (but not limited to):
DX spotting nets or QSO alerting assistance of any kind. Over-the-air nets or stations that provide frequency and station information. Any device or person that provides frequency and callsign information of any station during the contest period. This includes band skimmers or similar devices. Passive spotting does NOT include band scopes, SDR receivers, or the like, which provide no information about the signal other than its presence, which is allowed in all categories.

The categories are single op OR multi-op. If you use any assistance you are a
