    I was merely wondering how many of you feel SO2R should be in a separate category? Is it fair or unfair to include this with other entries for various contests?

    I think it should be considered "assisted" or in its own category. For instance, you can tell from a log if someone is assisted as it jumps frequencies to work multipliers - an SO2R log looks the same.

    Nah. Not as long as they meet the single op rules. Single op is single op, no matter how many radios they’re using.

    single op assisted or unassisted?

    Either. Assisted only means “the passive use (no self-spotting) of DX spotting nets or other forms of DX alerting is permitted.” Doesn’t matter if you use one radio or ten.

    That said, the CQ WW rules does have a single op overlay category called “Classic Operator” that limits the op to a single radio (among other requirements):

    Classic Operator (CLASSIC): The entrant will use only one radio, no QSO finding assistance, and may operate up to 24 of the 48 hours – off times are a minimum of 60 minutes during which no QSO is logged.If the log shows more than 24 hours of operation, only the first 24 hours will be counted for the overlay score. The one radio must not be able to receive while transmitting. Single Operator Assisted entries are not eligible for this category.
