Tree:  Are you in control of your kids just because you begat them?

Len:  My friend Joe/WA2SPL had to apply for an STA to run unattended
HF packet on 40m.  Seems like unattended robot contesting would also
require an STA.  Worried about getting bored watching your juggernaut
chug along?  Operate multi-two and let Robbie/Gort chase multipliers!
(But not in Field Day -- no multipliers.)
