What does that have to do with anything?  Since this is the contesting 
reflector we're presumably talking contesting here, and as far as I know 
the factors considered relevant for contest performance are the 
capability of the station and expertise of the operator.   I don't know 
of any contest with a handicapped scoring system that takes into account 
the personal discomfort of the operator, and if anything internet lag 
puts the remote operator at a decided operating disadvantage compared 
with the guy who lives in country or who rented a nice air conditioned 
shack while on vacation.
