Hi Everyone


>From what I´ve been
reading, there seems to be some confusion about the concept of remote
operation. I hope it is due to lack of
familiarity, but I suspect people are confusing it on purpose in order to 
justify their


So, let&rsquo;s put it simply.

Remote control is NOT using
remote SDR receivers to receive from different locations.

Remote control is NOT
internet-only QSOs

Remote control is NOT sitting
at W1 and operating a station in HZ using your W1 call


Remote control IS operating a
station from remote control point, wherever it may be, using the callsign of the
station. Just as if you were phisically there. The station is where the RF 
comes from and where RX is made.


As such, there is NO difference
on the air between a remote controlled station and a &ldquo;regular&rdquo; one. 
There is
NO implicit advantage on remote controlling, hence there is no need for a 
contest category.
