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.
