This, by the way, is the language I suggested:
"I think the only problem is rule 5.1.3. I would word it this way in
*5.1.3* Remote operation of a station with all transmitting and
receiving conducted from a single location (as defined in Rule 5.1) is
permitted. The call-sign used must be one associated with the station
location. Receivers and transmitters located separately from each other
and operated under a single call-sign are strictly prohibited.
I think that with this wording FAQ 40 can be deleted."
By the way, I don't have a dog in this fight, but I believe that rules
that prohibit legitimate use of new technology are counter-productive.
