Remote Control analysis

There is increasing interest in implementing the ability to have an operator man an operating position at a contest station while not being physically present at the controls. The remoting is enabled by the presence of reliable broadband connections at both ends of the link: at the station where the rigs and antennas are (which I will call the remote site) and where the operator happens to be (which I will call the control site.) There is not an ideal or optimal implementation for this use. The design tradeoffs required are different for various remote sites and even each control site. There can be different solutions, each with its own compromises, and here is no optimal hardware nor software solution available. Continue reading “Remote Control analysis”
