Correct, but if he doesn’t, its actually the primary responsibility of the control operator/station owner to shut down the station to prevent further illegal transmissions.

It is the same thing as if he was here physically, he must use his call with a / w2 or whatever.

In the case discussed of a station remoting in and not properly identifying
(ie an Italian station remoting a USA station but continuing to use the
Italian callsign), it seems to me that the FCC would consider the station
owner the control operator and therefore responsible for the proper IDing of
transmissions made from their station.

I would think a few fines issued by the FCC to the remote station holder,
would shut these games down in a hurry. I wonder if the RHR station owners
that are being leased out by individuals realize their liability in these
circumstances. I think some people will be shocked with a certified letter
at some point and the game will quickly change.
