Internet connectivity from anywhere in the world?
Not so unfortunately. Here in VK4 connection to the internet can be very problematic and fraught with technical issues.
It would be a complication I could well do without thanks.

Totally agree with Steve. That’s happened specially during WRTC qualification contest.
It is time to include in the rules “the station must publish score during the contest” so less hopping categories after the contest.
Today it is no problem to connect internet from anywhere in the world like 20 years ago, it is time to do some more changes.
