Someone recently pointed out a provision in the Russian DX test rules as 
support for his premise that some contest organizers frown on remote 

This was the rule in question:

"*5.1.2* Using any IP net for the remote transceiving, including web 
radiostations is unsportsmanlike and the entry is subject to 

A Russian friend checked with the organizers, who confirmed my 
understanding that the intent of their rule was to prevent cheating by 
the use of receivers and/or transmitters remote from the declared 
station location.  They say they will re-write the rule before next year 
to make it clear that legitimate remote operation like CQ8X is allowed.
