I was wondering about the following situation ..

I was scheduled to operate at one of the HQ stations for this contest.&nbsp; In 
this case, this particular station was doing 15 and 40M CW, with stations in 
other parts of the country, doing 10, 80, and 160.&nbsp; I didn't actually 
operate, for reasons&nbsp;that don't matter at the moment.&nbsp; What was 
strange, to me, is that when they were giving the ops instructions, and 
explaining the rx antenna switching, they explained that positions 1-4 (I 
think) were Beverages, and that in addition they had remote receivers, and were 
encouraged to use them if necessary.

I checked out the IARU contest rules, and don't see anything stated 
specifically, but I know in general, contest rules require all antennas both rx 
and tx to be in fairly close proximity to the actual transmitting 

Any ideas?
