A very interesting idea that I mulled over with the local crew last year.
Frankly, we're not far from the technology that would allow virtually
real-time linkups of operators planet-wide to use a single transmitting
site. (So why are we having a DX contest? Sounds kind of strange to do
all this so that we can use Morse Code, for example...yes, it's a hobby,
alright! :-) I don't have any *problem* with it, per se.
Imagine OH2BH in Hong Kong, OH2MM in EA8, N6KT in HC8, CT1BOH at a big EA
station, K1AR at home, and N6TJ in Hawaii. All of them in a big LAN
linked to P40V. All it takes is phone lines and a fast Pentium machine in
Aruba. The FT-1000's and Alpha's are already in place. POW!!!
If the intent of the committee re: multi-multi is to restrict operations
to single-site, then amend the physically-located rule to state "All
operators and equipment must be contained within a 1000-meter radius
circle or within the property limits."
"CQ twenty, give me your answer, do...
I'm half crazy, all from calling you!"
