Asunto:[dxcolombia] Operando una estación remota de HF
Fecha:Miercoles, 19 de Marzo, 2008  02:08:15 (-0500)
Autor:David J. Sourdis <hk1kxa @.......com>



Hola a todos,

Hay una larga discusión  (parte de ella pegada abajo en este mensaje) en un reflector de  concursos sobre la validez, o no, de la operación remota de estaciones de HF en concursos. Por ejemplo, através de un enlace de internet. Para la muestra, un botón:

http://www.w4mq.com/wyatt.pdf

Sería interesante oír opiniones.



Por otro lado, en la discusión de abajo también se menciona lo siguiente: 

http://www.hamspace.com

En mi opinión, lo que faltaba. Un simulador de comunicaciones en HF, emulando las condiciones atmosféricas.

Ídem de opiniones.

Joe,

If we put remote stations, available 24/7/365, at rare DX locations, that
will INCREASE HF activity, not dimish it.

That said, I believe both our points have validity and should be considered.
