Thanks Karl for the info - I can operate using Team Viewer and I can purchase a smart plug for the radio.  My question is how can I turn on the home laptop - just applying power will not turn it on, have to push the on button and certainly don't want to leave the laptop on for a week or so.  I did get home in time to get 12/28 which I needed.

Thanks for any help you can give

I actually just returned from a week in Florida, and I was not traveling with a radio, but still managed my at least one contact a day (plus 14 on Christmas Day) using a Remote Desktop application to remote control my computer and radio. The radio is powered via a smart plug that i can control via the internet. I took a calculated risk by leaving the antenna connected (not too many thunderstorms in December in Western New York).

It can be done, but requires a bit of planing and testing to make sure that all parts are in place and are actually workin together.

If you need some tips, just shoot me an email.
