After consultation with VE3NEA, he confirms that any speed change 
between the keyword (CQ, TEST etc.) and the call-sign will stop CW 
Skimmer cold.  Also, CQs in the format TEST N4ZR (only one of each) will 
be spotted.

For those who are interested, I will be publishing on 
skimmertalk@contesting.com a full explanation of how Skimmer identifies 
CQers (run stations) and validates callsigns.
