Although the current rule is pretty clear to me for CQ WW, here is a 

This will hold up somewhere between 10 minutes and 50 years depending on 
whether it

is clear or not.

Those stations at which one person performs all of the operating, 
logging, and spotting functions.The use of DX alerting assistance of any 
kind places the station in the Single Operator Assisted Category.

If clarification is necessary:

1.  Single operators are to copy all Morse code signals with their own 

Translation must be directly from Morse code audio to written or typed 
text by the single operator using the single operator's human brain for 
translation.  A code reader or readers or any other method or means that 
may be devised to translate Morse Code into text or other visual or 
audio translation is not allowed.

2.  Dx alerting assistance is defined as the operator acquiring any 
information, by any means, as to a callsign (completely or partially 
identified) and/or frequency where a station (completely or partially 
identified) is operating without the single operator having first tuned 
a receiver to listen and copy the station with his/her own ears.

Even our fore-fathers were not significantly prescient, having adopted 
original Constitution in 1787 and amending it 27 times since then.
