Supposedly, Herb did not actually operate.
By definition, I can have an OPERATOR sit in my room and not be an actual
OPERATOR . The only function of a control operator is to prevent or assume
responsibility for any violations, there is no requirement he work the radio
dials or log anything.
This is strictly an ARRL interpretation of what the ARRL accepts. They need
to make the rules much clearer.
