I understand your point, Chuck.  I won't say whether automated CW is more 
help than the cluster, but I make the distinction that automated CW is 
technology which you have implemented in your station design, while the 
cluster is tapping into EXTERNAL real time information which is the result 
of the work of a different operator DURING THE CONTEST.

I hold the view that TECHNOLOGY incorporated into your station design 
(automated CW, SO2R, a comfortable chair, innovative antenna configurations) 
are not assistance in the sense of "heat of the battle" contesting.

I also hold the view that INFORMATION developed by others (cluster spots, 
super-check partial data files) are the essence of "assistance" because they 
are the result of the work by OTHER OPERATORS.
