Right. It's where the RF comes from that defines the station 'location', not where the op is sitting!

It seems to me that this is very neatly addressed in the FCC rules. Station
location is where the rf will be or is being radiated from, not from where
the studio or mic or control location might be located. That is usually
referred to as the control point, and sometimes is the mailing address.
On this point, the FCC has not wavered.
  If the amateur contests desire to change reporting for some other reason,
I wonder how it would be if an operator were to set up remote stations, one
in each population center in the world, or country, then control them from
say... Idaho... or the North Pole, and claim that location as the multiplier
location??? Leaves one to question. And, the only thing stopping it would be
the expenditure, but we all know that isn't much of a slow down, or deterent
is it?
  C U in the next Test....
