  My thoughts on Assisted,

Any assistance that came to you  by the help of someone else helping.

Spotting of any kind, is help provided to you by someone else.  you had 
that person show you where that contact is.  you got assistance from it.

anything that happens inside your own shack done by YOU and you alone is 
not assisted.

Skimmer,  while it tells you who it is and where on the band,  yeah,  
but how much different really is it from a band pass scope that shows 
you the activity on the bands?  it' all a part of the electronics 
part.   like better filtering. on the rig,  thats equipment,

Now, the reverse beacon network is a strange other,  there is no person 
assisting,  but I still call it  as assisting because, it is also 
external to your ststion,  any input that is external to your station is 

Just my thoughts
