And don't forget remotes. While they may not be feasible from every location and operation, it allows the DXpedioner to be at both ends of the same QSO.

Hi Paul,

Think about an eventual P5 activation, a mega one, with lots of ops.

The likelyhood that many of them will not have P5 already confirmed, is a real possibility. They will be there making a lot of people happy, but not adding that ATNO themselves, unless another ham operate from their home station. And P5 being what it is, another activation may take a few generations to happen again.

On the other hand...

Tim Pettis, KL7WE (SK), in chasing WAS on 432, was known to visit needed rare states with a portable EME station, put it on from there, and work his own station (as well as others) to get credit for those states. Another ham would operate his home station. This action of visiting ops operating stations of guys on DXpeditions continues to this day and contacts made like this should be and are considered to be completely valid. You should consider re-evaluating the contacts made by your good friend.
