Not really.  Presumably there is a person at this remote control point who 
can remotely control the transmitter.  Cell phones or pagers are not 
considered remote control points by the FCC.  Yes, technically you can 
control a transmitter with a cell phone, but the FCC does not consider it a 
legitimate control point.  I didn't make the rules.
