This is starting to sound like the discussions of 30 years ago about 
packet that led to SO-A class entries.

Part of the future of our hobby is symbiosis with computers and the 
Internet. I suggest that remote stations, and even remote stations 
for hire, are going to be part of the landscape of contesting within 
a few years. We had best look forward to a new set of categories to 
accommodate SO, MS, M2, MM remote operating. Think of how inventive 
we could get if we made it a wide-open category, i.e., no geographic 
boundaries on the remote locations! What a hoot that might be. 
Imagine the rates you could have running a remote in EA9 from an 
apartment in Sheboygan?

Maybe it's just me, but I always look at what is and think about what 
is possible. The status quo is for old fogies with no vision.
