Agreed - all relevant technology assists.  Computer
loggers assist, SCP assists ....

I suggest

1)  Single Operator SO
2)  Single Operator Hybrid SOH (uses other comms
            technologies or multi-channel decoders)

I don't see any reason to have a third category
of single-op, athough some may argue for a multi-op
extreme category.

A definition like this offers the possibility
of introducing a multi-op "unassisted" category,
for teams preferring not to use other communications
technologies or multi-channel decoders.
