Interesting perspective Ron.
So the next thing will be to have a group of top notch operators sitting at
home, operating their favourite band at a multi/multi remote contest
station on the other side of the world.
Maybe the top notch operator can also time share, so that he operates 24
hours for one team and 24 hours for the other team, during prime daytime or
nighttime propagation depending on the band used.
I agree with Albert Crespo - "What a lovely hobby we used to have"
Paul EI5DI is right. When contesting is about having the best and most
reliable Internet connection we are drifting away from ham radio. Rapidly.
Yes, I hear what you vocal Internet advocats and technically skilled
operators are saying, but I am not buying it. I totally disagree with you

the purpose of the operator is to simply operate the remote station, and
ONLY the remote station (that is to say, he or she is not also a member of
a multi-op team at another site, or is running part of the contest under
the "home" call and part under the "remote" call, or other oddball
situations like that), and is willing to put up with all of the technical
glitches that could occur with a remote station, I don't have a problem.
