Scanning 17m this morning I thought I had found some good dx, nn2x/a9 in Bahrain.To my disappointment I discovered that he was in remote control of a station in Boston via the internet and a satellite so while physically in Bahrain his radio and antenna were in Boston which is not my idea of dx.This brings to mind all kinds of questions about an operation like this.Should the qsl card reflect the location of the transmitter and beam etc. ?I assume this would not be counted toward dxcc etc?

I may be wrong, but I question the legality of the /A9 in the call sign since the actual transmitter is in the US. Also, the folks in A9 land are VERY stingy about handing out licenses to non-natives. I have a Navy friend who spent several months with 5th Fleet command there and he was denied a temporary license.

I wouldn't bother QSLing this operation at all. You sure didn't work any DX, any more than you would have in an internet chat room.

See DXCC rules on the ARRL web site. The station has to be in the entity. But, this is one way for the guy in A9 to make some on-the-air QSOs even though they won't count for anything. So,no harm done. He should not sign "/"
