KD3Y Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 (edited) Question came up yesterday from a mismatch in my log book. Scenario is this, the operator lives in Colorado, is sitting in colorado, but is using remote control to operate a transmitter located in Galveston, TX. So operator is in CO but the signal is actually coming from TX. When I logged the QSO on QRZ the entry was Colorado (as that's whats on his license and QRZ into). Seems to me that is sort of cheating. It's not an RS report from CO to NC, it's actually an RS report from TX to NC. I logged it as a CO to NC QSO in my paper log book but I can't change it on QRZ . Not a big thing but I'm just OCD like that. How would you normally consider that QSO? CO to NC or TX to NC? If I am trying to earn the "Worked all States" award, I actually didn't contact Colorado, I contacted Texas. My professor in law school said one time decades ago, "If you apply the answer to a problem in it's extreme, and it still passes the logic test, then the answer is valid." So using that theory, if the operator was sitting in Qatar on the other side of the world from me, remotely controlling a station located in Galveston TX, I wouldn't consider that RS report from Western Asia to NC to be valid as it's actually a signal report from TX to NC. 4/5 of that QSO from Qatar to NC is an email, literally, as it's going over VOIP, not over RF. I'm not interested in how far I can send an email. What say you? Edited January 31 by KD3Y Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
