Well, some subtraction should be made, as OH2UA stated in his 3830-report
(http://lists.contesting.com/pipermail/3830/2012-April/249492.html) that
those QSOs do not count for DXCC. I´m  not in DXCC-rules but seemingly there
is a perspective seeing such qsos a bit diffrent than "ordinary" qsos where
the operator sits at the transmitting site.

Will be interesting to see what further issues will arise with a growing
number of such unmanned remote controlled stations - from new forms of
rental stations to detective work of log checkers whether this stations were
mis-used by cheaters as receiving sites etc.
Toys for the Formula One who certainly will claim that it can attract new
blood. Curious...
