V3 REMOTE WITH A HAM FRIEND
Here is a Version 3 scenario I think would be FAR more common than unknown Hams remotely operating an unattended FLEX station:
A FLEX owner is rag chewing with a ham friend. HAM FRIEND is curious about the FLEX so OWNER says "Would you like to try my FLEX without leaving home?"
HAM FRIEND: "You have to be kidding?"
FLEX OWNER: "Nope. I'll email you a link to a piece of FLEX software that you download and install on a Windows computer. It will take you less than 15 minutes. Then I will email you a special password to let you use my FLEX 6000 over the internet while I'm sitting here watching you on the screen. We'll also continue talking on ham radio so I can guide you."
HAM FRIEND: "Will this **** up my computer?"
FLEX OWNER: "I've never seen it cause a problem. And when we're done you can uninstall it with no ill effects."
HAM FRIEND: "What do I do after I install it?"
FLEX OWNER: "I'll guide you through several steps to log into my FLEX and you will be on the air."
Etc... And when we are done I will change the password as if nothing had happened. (CAVEAT: I have run Starbucks and MacDonald's Remote with V2 but not installed V3 so have no experience with it, yet.)
