"Interesting, Ken....

Just to clarify a bit further, I'm going to assume this means that you CAN
operate from a different country than the physical station..."

This is not quite correct, because operating a remote station that is 
unsanctioned by the remote host country would be an illegal operation. 
Every contest and operating award I know of is based on operating within 
the rules of your LICENSED operating, NOT outside of them.

If the remote station is controlled by a local ham, AND a third party 
agreement exists between the two countries or provides specifically for 
remote operating from outside, then it *MIGHT* be acceptable, IF the rules 
of the contest/award INCLUDE wording to that effect. As so many event 
sponsors say, "the decision of the contest/awards committee will be final."
