- To me, unassisted is just that.  While I can totally see the difference between clicking on spots and hitting "Enter" vs observing the total score tally, I still consider it assistance for many of the reasons sited here on the reflector.  A good example was this weekend in WPX.  We had a decent sparodic E opening to EU which could have amounted to much more Qs than it did.  If it had, and I was working it, a good op watching my score would have said "N1UR is hitting on something but my 20M rate sucks...I wonder if 10 or 15 just opened?"  I defy ANYONE to not consider that assistance.

Consider then that using your definition of "assistance", realtime scoreboards for single-band contests and single-band entries is fine.

otoh...no sponsor that I'm aware of defines assistance in this way so yours is a personal choice (which I certainly respect).

Ev, W2EV
