The difference is $$$. It costs about the same as a Dxpedition to the Caribbean to rent a pay for use station for a 48 hour contest. It's definitely not within the budget of many contesters. Of course you could always build your own remote station for your personal use that's at the same level as those rent a contest stations.JeffSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

There's a huge difference between a rent-a-superstation in Maine remote vs. a guy who lives in a condo or deed restricted community who puts up his own remote station. AD8J in Asheville, NC, comes to mind. And are not the remotes in Maine all competing against each other, and not against ordinary stations back in Ohio or California or wherever?73  -  Jim   K8MR-----Original Message-----From: Paul O'Kane <pokane at ei5di.com>To: cq-contest at contesting.comSent: Tue, Oct 6, 2020 4:46 amSubject: Re: [CQ-Contest] Distributed ContestingThe advantage lies in having remote capability.  If this occasionally seems unfair, then having a separate category for remotes could make it fairer. >  Why can't the WWROF take a leadership role in making recommendations to >  overhaul the category structure used by the hundreds of smaller contest >  sponsors (and the few larger ones)?K5ZD, a Director of WWROF, said earlier in this thread - "I don't think this is something that WWROF can assist with."73,Paul EI5DI_______________________________________________CQ-Contest mailing listCQ-Contest at contesting.comhttp://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/cq-contest
