Yes. As I see it, using a masterdat or a prefill that is not generated
from my logs is ASSISTANCE. When I'm running and a call doesn't show up
on either screen, I'm going to make sure that I got it right, either by
seeing it a couple of times in RTTY windows, or asking myself or the
other guy if I got it right. Without those aids, I might never have
asked. That's assistance, even though the Rules for most contests don't
treat it that way.

Me too, and I am still not even close to being comfortable.

There's an excellent piece in the new NCJ showing that SO2R is more than
a "slight advantage."
