I say No - you're multi-op.  It could then be argued
that if you're more than 500 metres from the other
station you should be DQd.

However, some others will say Yes, on the grounds that
what you've done is not specifically prohibited - and
you haven't used a public spotting network.

This argument will go on for ever unless contest
organisers define what assistance (lower case), if any,
is OK for single-op - whereas "Assistance" (upper-case)
refers only to the use of public spotting networks.

Since "Assistance" is not the same as "assistance",
and to avoid confusion, wouldn't it be better to refer
to Single-Op Assisted as Single-Op Networked?
