I strongly agree -- while it is permitted by DXCC rules, it is NOT
ETHICAL to use a remote station, or a different QTH of your own,
thousands of miles closer to a DX entity to add to your country totals.
I see no ethical problem with a guy anywhere using a SINGLE remote
station, or remote stations in a geographic region, to contribute to
And in reality, it IS pay to play -- nice stations cost money! There's
the gear, the antennas, and the real estate.
