You are getting Control operator and station Operation conflated. There is no requirement for a GMRS station Control operator. GMRS stations may be operated under automatic control.

Which has nothing to do with connecting the station to the Internet for audio. The rule allows interconnection for the sole purpose of control only and no other purpose. If that didn't matter, it wouldn't say "sole" purpose. They are making clear, here and elsewhere, that communications over the network link aren't permitted.

The inquiry to the FCC did not mention what the interconnection to the Internet was for, and so the response did not mention that either. We already know that interconnection for remote control is allowed, even via the Internet. So the email is of no value on this subject.

Instead, I suggest that you apply the principle they apply at the FCC: "The rules mean what they say."

Excellent advice. Exactly what I intended to do all along!
