Re: How about DXCC honor Roll for everyone

How fair is allowing the use of remote stations in Maine Florida and California to those hams in Alaska Hawaii or other entities Many of which are less than 200 Miles from corner to corner?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I’ve been a ham for only 26 years applied for 5BWAS and DXCC just a few months ago using LOTW confirmed QSOs mostly from SSB contactd made in the past 2 years combined with 40 something ft8 contacts made in the last 11 months. All done with wire antennas. Hope to have a tower up by year end and a decent bean by summer 2021.
From what someone was saying earlier I should be one of those jumping up and down cheering the possibility of renting remote stations since that is probably the only way I’ll break 200 countries or even get single band DXCC.
I was a scout for a few years then in my early adult years I helped a few less fortunate scouts “earn” merit badges they didn’t have parents with time to help.
Scouts are supposed to build their own pinewood derby cars every one is supposed to start with the same kit. I was very disappointed when I realized many with the slick fast cars bought them already built.
My true feelings about DXCC is if you move for what ever reason Or use a remote station more that perhaps a state away you should start your count all over again. You still have bragging rights of having worked some of the same countries from each of your locations so you might claim to have 640 DXCC countriesWith the dupes. But your count is your count from your Current home QTH.
