There is no difference in someone remoting into their HF radio station
while on vacation in Tahiti and pushing out position reports from a
smartphone through the APRS-IS. Both are amateur radio when conducted
by a licensed radio amateur as they can result in transmission of RF
on amateur radio bands.
