But Paul, you have on a previous occasion said that the contacts
I make from my remote station are not 'amateur-radio QSOs'.

I connect to my remote station using an amateur radio (900MHz) link.
No third party carrier is involved at any point. 

I feel strongly that by any reasonable definition this is amateur radio .
