Lots of variables could come into play like where antenna is located in proximity to shack, is there RF coming back down the feed line, how well shielded is transmiiter/antenna tuner, and so on.  How many really have well designed stations ?  I venture to say a lot of hams just toss together what they *think* is right.

I'm on a ham FB page and it seems there are a few messing with old CB equipment and 11 meter amps they try to run on 10m.  I wouldn't trust many of those 11 meter amps to not radiate in shack.

Incidental radiation can happen when you least expect... had a nice looking coax switch that radiated all over the place.

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.

In a well designed station you shouldn’t have RF  in the shack for safety reasons in the first place.

Plus there is always QRP operations.

I guess I can see a point to the remote operation. Think of
those that are in nursing homes or assisted living facilities

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

Some people are restricted from being in areas with  RF radiation because they are wearing pacemakers. I know of at least 2 hams who have that problem.

Very well written James on all points ...  110% agree!

A large part of ham radio is about experimentation and innovation --  remote use and internet integration is an excellent example of that!

WAS has a 50-mile rule (Rule 3), but it is common to earn WAS by starting from scratch if you move or have a station outside your original 50-mile circle.  There is nothing in the WAS rules to prevent you from earning WAS while using a remote station within 50 miles of your home or other station, or making a separate application for WAS completed entirely by remote sites within 50 miles of each other.

ARRL has studied the issue extensively and has specifically not prohibited remote operating in its contests.  There are rules about "remote receive sites", but these refer to sites that are remote from the operating station, not the operator's location.  As long as the rule that "All transmitters and receivers must be located within a 500-meter diameter circle, excluding antennas." is followed, there is no reason you can't operate an ARRL contest from a remote station.

I am inclined to disagree with the folks who oppose use of remote stations.  While the idea of "paying for QSOs" is a nice sound bite for opponents, please consider:
* Not every ham has the ability to put up their own station.  (eg, apartment dwellers, college students, HOA victims)
* Club stations are often made available to members for personal use, and their use (under a personal call) has not drawn such objections, even though the club station may be much better equipped than the ham's home station.
* Remote operating includes not just the heavy-weight stations that are subject to hourly rental, but also club shacks that are more modest and made available to members over the Internet.
* Remote operating also includes operating ones own station via the Internet, perhaps while out of town.  (I, for one, have been known to operate my own station remotely this way.)
* Finally, "paying for QSOs" by renting time at a huge contest site is very little different from buying the best gear, the best antennas, property at the best location, etc.  Those with funds to spend have that advantage over others regardless of the way those funds are spent (locally vs remotely).  Having a huge, expensive contest station at your home doesn't mean you are particularly skilled, and likewise, paying for use of a remote station doesn't mean you lack the skill.  It's simply a question of how you allocate your resources.

For what it's worth, I don't operate stations other than my own remotely, but I do sometimes use my own call at my club's station (which is permitted by the club).  Having been in circumstances where I couldn't set up my own station (and I still don't have the station I really want), I am very sympathetic to those who want to rent the facility from others.

Re: remote radio

Bill Williams
 

I am surprised no one has straighted this out yet.  I am not very knowledgeable on the subject but I do know remote operating is addressed in all the awards.  Awards like WAS and DXCC are "location" awards.  The transmitter must be within 50 miles of your defined station to count.  The defined station for most of us is our home station.  Here in Florida I know several who have two defined stations, one at home up North and one here for the winter home.  If you have a vacation home in another location then you must have two defined locations and can get the award for either or both but all contacts must be made from within 50 miles of that location.  I assume you could also get the award from a remote control station could but all contacts for that award would have to be made from that remote station or within 50 miles of the remote station location.

The 070 club awards are different in that the awards are not specified as location awards but contact of specific places or people.  No station location is specified except for the distance away from home you must be for the APE award.

Since I have not a wall paper seeker, except 070 awards!, I only know this as general ham knowledge.  There has to be at least one member who is intimate with all the rules.  Jump in here and state chapter and verse so this line can end.

Peter ...  I use a 3 element yagi (4 elements on 10m) and usually have a big signal (40-50 watts) and occasionally get pile ups from Europe. I can switch back and forth to a ground mounted vertical and most times I see little difference in received signal. Transmit is a different story.

In the end, it's all about what you do with YOUR little station and the propagation you have to work with.   Those who use remote stations are only cheating themselves.

I agree. For many of us, it's about what WE'VE managed to work from OUR stations. But that's not true of everyone...


To go with a remote station is about the same as working DXCC via  the internet.


I don't see any difference using a station remotely, versus physically traveling to a station and making QSOs from there. As long as I can travel to a big gun, use my call sign, and fill my log book I don't see any reason why remoting to that same station would be any different.

But that's not why I was proud when I got my RTTY (well, PSK really) DXCC certificate. I was proud because I did it with my little barefoot radio with my little OCF dipole hung in some trees in my back yard.

Might be fun to actually hear what it's like to use a big yagi on a tower someday, though...
