The only remote possibility that real-time scoring could be construed as
assistance is when you see a single band operation and know that he would be
on that band only. Bit of a stretch as you still have to find the frequency.
One way around that is to show SB operation but not the band.

I would settle for raw data like Rich NN3W stated in his posting but
frankly, the info shown on the site now seems adequate for either inspiring
the ones who need that little nudge of inspiration or weeding out the ones
who can't stand defeat.
If I quit every time I knew I wasn't going to win a contest I'd never be on
