It's three hours into the contest and the Skimmers are posting stations above 1850 kHz now. Maybe it was propagation or not enough stations on the air in the beginning. Don't know... 160m seems to be in pretty good shape from the Upper Midwest for this early into the evening.

It appears the skimmers are only listening to the bottom 50 kHz segment of the 160m band. I found NØHJZ on 1854, the old fashioned way... turning the knob on my transceiver.

So if you're going to be CQing / RUNning... and want the benefit of being 'auto spotted'... you will want to stick in the lower 50 kHz of the band. At least that's what I am seeing here using the AE5E node 90 minutes into the contest.
