As I understand it, there exists a "guest operating" station set
up in Macao that might be located in a hotel over there.

As I will be going in and out of Hong Kong on several occasions
during the next 45 days, or so, on trips to BY, and knowing that I
will find myself with free time, some of which can be manipulated

Does this guest station at XX9 really exist ?

Is it possible to gain access to same.
How do I get access to same.
What licensing pre-arrangements are necessary.

What is the hotel name where the station is located so I can
arrange to actually stay there during a part of my trip.

Will anyone over in that area of the world who might be reading
this message have any possibility of meeting myself so as to
exchange international eyeball hellos and a cold beer... or two,
or three cold beers ?

Such techniques have been used for years.  Several years back when 
K5VT was in Africa and operating 10m cw he sent "UP 50"  with the 
zero being sent as a slightly elongated dash.  The bulk of the masses 
called up 5 kHz, but the deserving called up 50 kHz and got in the 
log.  I see nothing unethical about such practices that separate the 
callers according to their operating ability.  - Harvey, N6MM

If you REALLY have to thin down a pile-up, you could always encrypt your
listening frequency with PGP.
