One day T. Arcala FT1000 (station) went to Azores Dept. of radio licenses and 
got (bought?) him (her)self station licenses and managed to win contest without 
having boy at the station. He even got precious certificate to prove it!
The point is that some of the loud arguers argument that remoteering is just 
extending the headphones and mike "wires" is not so simple. How do the 
licensing authorities look at situation when station in their country is 
operated by someone whoknowswhere? Possible solution signing CQ8X/OH2UA/r?
Now the technology allows boy to have part of his radios all over the world and 
to pretend being there - single op - split? Time for new category?
That would make too much sense. Why bother when ham radio logic is happy with 
skewed scoring system in the world's wide biggest contest, hired guns are 
single op and skimmer is a person-assistant, 3QSO "penalty". Instead of 
listening to top contester's opinions, the chatter of (internet) loud opinions 
sets the course and contest radio governments cast the rules in stone. 
Technology is progressing and bringing new dimensions to our hobby/sport, we 
should carefully consider the implications and adjust our contests rules and 
categories to accommodate the progress. 
Need new country? Let me know, I will mail or drop from the airplane the other 
half of my station there and give you a NEW one! We should have all countries 
on the air 24/7 very soon. We need more frequencies, wider bands to accommodate 
all of their perpetual CQing so everyone can have ALL multipliers. Oh, and 
don't forget the robot "stations", I don't need me anymore, K3BUr will be 
making contacts long after I am gone.
Just wanted to shine some light at the "wire extended mike/key" idea, that 
maybe is not so simple especially when it involves cross border control - one 
pretending to be somewhere else.
