Bill wrote "...re-write the log sheets in order to make the log entries
readable...".  I don't see anything there that states, or suggests,
using any source of information except what's already in the log.  

I have recorded the entire contest (while operating mobile & unable to
safely operate a computer) and transcribed it to the computer after the
contest was over.  I consider the process perfectly ethical.  (though
way too much work!)  

No outside information was used - I would suggest it would be unethical
to have someone else transcribe the recording, but just fine if the
operator does so him/herself.
