I'm guessing here that it has something to do with "self-spotting" or 
"spotter assistance"?   A multi-op station is allowed to have assistance 
in locating spots.  A single op station is expected to do it all alone, 
which would imply no digipeating?

PS.   And I just discovered that I'll be in the NC mountains near the AT 
for a wedding on September 10!  Now, to see how much gear I can pack 
along and how to slip away in the afternoon without being missed....
