 From Randy Thompson:

"Here is your assignment.  Propose new rule wordings for single op and single
op assisted that are simple, easily understood/translated to multiple
languages, will be widely accepted by the contest community, and makes it
clear what the difference is between assistance and not assistance. Oh, and
it needs to apply equally for SSB, CW, and RTTY."

Here goes.

Single Op

Operates the amateur radio equipment alone. All reception and transmitting 
is done in accordance with the contest rules and the rules of his/her 
licensing authority. No use of receiving or alerting assistance of any kind 
is allowed including external spotting, arranged schedules, or any decoding 
devices other than natural human capability may be used, except for RTTY, 
where "non-human ear" decoding of incoming signals is allowed if the 
decoding is done within the usual bandpass of the receiver.

Single Operator Assisted

Same as Single Op except the use of receiving or alerting assistance may be 
used including external spotting, as well as decoding devices other than 
natural human capability.
