Correct, but the issue on the table is whether Skimmer
constitutes assistance. Yes my records were all unassisted. I
also had a competitor who claimed his multiplier totals (comparable
to multi-multis) were because he was using the Sub receiver in
his FT-1000MP <ggg>. I bet he also had a good Internet connection!
;-) BTW CQ reclassified him to Assisted at least a couple of times.
Since it will be virtually impossible to distinguish Skimmer
spots from Packet spots, I predict the next step in cheating will
be to claim you're using Skimmer (if allowed for unassisted) even
if you are actually using Packet (i.e. assisted). :-(
