[CQ-Contest] Live audio during WW Phone

     If another competitive stations listens to this audio stream during the 
contest, and they happen to be more than 500 meters away from station 
K5ZD, they are violating the CQWW rules' ban on the use of remote receivers,
and should be disqualified from the contest.

     Is this warning going to be prominently displayed during the contest?
Are we going to have access to the IP addresses of the connections made
during the contest so we can correlate (a la K1TTT packet spot analysis) 
the competitive stations that were using this remote receiver?

     I know there are, and have been, other remotely accessible HF receivers
available over Internet streams for a while now, but this seems to be 
directly enticing people to break the CQWW rules.
