You cite "traditionally" as a reason to refute Mike's assertion.
Didn't we traditionally use paper logs too?
Seriously, where do you draw the line of demarcation to what is embraced
as a new development and forbidden because it varies from tradition?
To me, the only thing that matters is where is the *radio*
(receiver/transmitter or transceiver and antennas etc)is (are) located. If
the operator is elsewhere, aside from this being a fact, what difference
does it make to the communications taking place through the radio?
Aside from it being a hindrance to the operator to have to deal with
latency and other technological issues, I see nothing that would impact
those who he communicates with in any way.
Again, aside from the fact that the operator would be located elsewhere,
what difference does it make?
