I think the intent for CQ awards, DXCC rules are that if you go to J6
and operate you cannot count what you worked there for your W0MU
awards. I can apply for J6 awards with my J6 contacts. If I remote
operate from J6, which I can't, those contacts should count for J6, but
may not count for any award. Where the operator sits should not
matter. What matters is where is the transmitter located.
