I am not trying to justify anything. I am trying to get a better feel
for why people are adverse to this from a contesting and activity
Why does the location of the operator bother you? If am in San Diego it
is ok to build a remote station in New England which is 3000 miles away
but If I lived in Texas and built a remote station in Mexico 400 miles
away it would not? 20 years ago the Internet did not cross the globe.
People with money set up remote stations and used dedicated phone
There is absolutely no fairness in contesting. Some people have more
money, time, space, desire, skill, perseverance than the next guy. To
say that remote contesting is unfair
So for you remote contesting is ok if the remote station and operator
are in the same country even though the distance traveled is huge
compared to say Europe. Building a remote station in the Caribbean is
not ok but building a station in the Caribbean and renting it out is.
