Ok guys,
First of all I want to remind you that my interest is purely theoretical. I
am not going to use this technique when SO not assisted unless contest
sponsors say "it is OK to use it". All I am trying to do is to find as
close to perfect definition of "not assisted" as possible with your help.
So far there are a lot of contradictions in most of the arguments. Until
skimmers appeared assistance was interpreted as  getting helping
information from other human beings. It is not anymore. Still getting
outside information is allowed in some cases (WWV, beacons) and not allowed
in other cases. I am afraid the border line is quickly turning into 'grey
