I agree with Mike!

It will be a good opportunity for many of us that are tripping all the time 
across Europe, or across a country, because of job and cannot be at home during 
a contest week end.

It will be a good opportunity, also, for retired people because they will take 
part in a club around a remote controlled station (and maybe they cannot go on 
the tower to repair antennas).

It will be a good opportunity for those that have not a backyard at home but 
that can build a station at the summer cottage where,
without this opportunity, they didn't realize to build a station QRV few 
months per year.

This is tecnology, you can't stop it. Amateur radio involves tecnology and 
this is the future ... or you prefere those guys that says that amateur radio 
is an obsolete "hobby" ????

73 and best regards,

Fabio - IT9GSF.
