[VHFcontesting] Quick APRS comment

My entire family IS licensed. 

And, when the vehicle gets shut off, so does the APRS system.

But, beyond that I can also act as control operator via an auxiliary UHF
receiver in the APRS packages. I can control through my one UHF
repeaters to send control codes to my APRS packages.

Isn't this a violation of Part 97 rules unless you have a licensed ham
in the car to serve as the control operator, or some way to remotely
control the transmitter and turn it off, if necessary.
