A few people self spotted in Sweepstakes but it was extremely rare.

The ARRL Sweepstakes rules state the following:

Single Operator Unlimited (SOU)
HCAT.2.1. Use of spotting assistance is permitted. Spotting information must
be derived from
sources within the station’s circle or sources open to the general public.
HCAT.2.2. Entrants are permitted to use social media, video live streaming,
and internet chat

Prohibited Conduct

PROH.3.  Arranging, soliciting, or confirming any contacts during or after
the contest by use of any non‐
amateur radio means.  All required elements of a contact must be exchanged
via amateur radio.

I was thinking this was kicking in for ARRL tests for the Unlimited
category.  Is that right?  Was it done commonly in SS this weekend and how
did it work out?
