Does anyone want to argue that using a "Code Reader" is NOT assistance.
I can think of no greater poster child for DEFINING Assistance than a
code reader.
Lets just put an end to the endless debate by saying the following:
Use of a code reader, of any kind including to populate bandmaps, puts
you in "Assisted Category".
"What do I have against the hearing impaired"?  Nothing.  They can
happily contest and compete against hearing impaired and non-hearing
impaired people in the assisted category.  Last I looked, a number of
people prefer and compete mightily in the assisted category for various
reasons.  There is no discrimination by placing those that need a code
reader for any reason in the assisted category.
Simple as that.
Some will say "but Writelog comes with a code reader".  So what?  You
shack probably has an internet connection, but that doesn't mean you
have to use it, right?
