[CQ-Contest] Remote Base

I would suggest that the NAQP consider adding a reference to the ARRL
General Rules as applying to NAQP as well. 

Several potential loopholes might be closed just by doing that.

My response was in two parts.
1) regarding N7MAL's question of what QTH the contester using the remote
base should have sent - the QTH of the transmitter (remote base). I believe
that is consistent with the intent of the current NAQP rules since the
current rules do not contain language that either allows or prevents this
type of operation. In fact this is not the first occurrence of the use of a
remote base in NAQP, although I'm unaware of any competitive logs that have
been submitted for this type of operation.

2) "...will be addressed in 2006 revised rules." This was merely a statement
that I realize that the rules need to address remote base operations in
NAQP. There are no rules yet drafted. However, there are a number of issues
that will need to be considered, some of which Mal has enumerated.
