What is unique about this operation is that the operator is on a business

It seems to me that remote-control contesting makes
about as much sense as remote-control hunting.

It may involve advanced technology, it may be
harder than the real thing - but that's missing
the point.

Remote-control hunting is generally considered
to be unethical, because it defies the principle
of fair chase.  Contest sponsors might consider
whether it's time to apply this principle to
amateur radio.


Internet-hosted contesting is not smart, it's not
clever and, most of all, it's not amateur-radio.
Why?  Because no "QSOs" are possible without 100%
dependence on a public communications utility.
