I cannot help but ask: why?

What difference does it make to you whether the guy is operating remote or
in front of the radio?

He clearly has to deal with network latency and other issues as well as it
just not being as efficient as being on-site. So, there is no advantage

So, I cannot imagine why anyone would care!

I would like to understand why you say what you do.

There seems to be no logical explanation.
