As a QRP station most of the time I don't use the RBN.  Ditto for the other
spots.  After the pileup starts I go someplace else during a contest.

But today I used it!  I was using the QRP ARCI club call of K6JSS/7, a
special event station.  I could just not hear stations on almost all the
bands and had no idea if anyone could hear me.  Then I though of the RBN.

I set the filter to watch for that call and then I could get an idea of what
the condishtions were and where I might be heard.

Quick and easy propagation check in real time.

Thanks Pete.
