Just for the sake of argument... where is the body of concrete evidence that
packet assisted gives the overwhelming edge? If you compare the top results
of assisted and non assisted you may draw the conclusion that assisted in
fact gives disadvantage...

Sure second radio gives one advantage especially at slow rates. Is it
I do not know.. depends on what you consider overwhelming. Is 10% of total
qso overwhelming?
