Can a BEACONet CQ be used to provide notification to alert you that a particular
station is active on some other frequenc(ies)?

While this will be very useful for DXers, I believe it's
an inappropriate use of technology for contesters - whether

Why would any contester use dxclusters when we all know
that it's inappropriate to get similar information from
other external sources such as phone calls?
