Hi Trent,

That’s right if you’re in a “DX” country or from a rare multiplier. 

Try full 2BSIQ during all the contest from USA, France, etc…. → “traditional” SO2R assisted will do better than you 😉 But if you alternate 2BSIQ, run/S&P, S&P/S&P, (assisted or not), it will be better from a common QTH.

My opinion about assisted ? There are operators who deliberate on internet and others who take part to the contests (in their favorite category), unfortunatly it’s rarely the same ones…

Assisted is really not assisted - 2BSIQ Two Band Synchronised interleaved QSOs have left the assisted operator in its dust... 
It is really time to reconsider whether Assisted is truly an advantage anymore and deserving of its own category...
Assisted by my definition is the sourcing of callsign, band and frequency information from any source other than your radio system.

Is remembering a well-known callsign assisted?
