I guess I can see a point to the remote operation. Think of
those that are in nursing homes or assisted living facilities
etc. that want more of a taste of ham radio than echolink can
provide but can't have a station in their room or apartment.

For awards, the QTH should be the remote location. I think it is
just as fair to rent a station as to be able afford to build a
super station. Maybe award categories need dollar classes as
well as power classes.

Just my 2 cents.

awards like DXCC. 

For me the competition has always been with myself.  One
station, one antenna from hear in my little corner of Northern
Illinois. 

To go with a remote station is about the same as working DXCC
via  the internet. There's been a lot of discussion about the
over the past few years. I think for some areas DXCC and other
awards should have an endorsement for the area of the world you
work from. 

Now this will probably stir up a lot of controversy.  But I
really think this will have a definite effect on all awards.

  this keeps popping up on my Facebook side. Curious as to
what people think of this concept. There is the 'novelty'
factor and of course the cost factor. After looking at their
stuff and the concept, I just am not comfortable with the
concept. I guess I could sign into one of their big gun east
coast stations and fill my log with a bunch of EU that is
difficult to get from my own station (maybe a quick way to get
that Ukraine sticker !) , but I question the 'legality' of that
. I mean, it's not really me using my own equipment from my own
QTH...I really don't know
anyone have any thoughts or concerns/
