remote operation in contests...
I did not find this through searches...
What is the exact policy of remote operating a rig in a contest within this scope - I have been reading through some of the contest rules (CQWW, CQWPX and ARRL) and they are pretty vague on this subject (perhaps intentionally)
- Remote operation is allowed in the licencee's country
- Being used within the same country
- the station follows the rule of no RX antennas and 500m radius etc.
- the user owns all the equipment.
and ++ as I have heard about users taking part in contest remote as multi-singe.
or is this perhaps just no issue at all ?

ok - just to clarify -
I'm not asking this question to get people into trouble or anything - I'm all for remote operation - and I just want to stand clear on this - My native language is Icelandic, not English - so I'm just thinking if I'm not reading the paragraphs in the rules correctly - or if I should read between the lines..etc..
I can't see that the rules in CQWW/CQWPX/ARRL DX exclude me for participating using my station in a summer house and me staying home... or what ?

If he operated from Azerbajan using Armenian callsign you must report to Contest manager - no to this forum.

As a new ham and one the lives in an apartment, I am excited when I Qso using remotes within the US.
But if the rules state that it will not count, then I will exclude DX contacts
