   "In the growing ranks of the remotes, this may be
   a record-setter. Tom K6CT lives in Solaris, Uruguay
   near Montevideo but logged in to one of the
   operating positions at K4VV in Virginia this past,
   weekend for the ARRL CW Sweepstakes. Operating as
   W4YY for which he is the trustee, he made a clean
   sweep at a distance of 8,323 km (5,171 miles). Your
   editor made a QSO with W4YY and had no idea the
   control operator was far, far away."

On the internet, there is no "far, far away" - distance
has no significance, there is no DX, there are no records
to be set.
