With great number of skimmers used by RBN I have developed a habit of
checking propagation on different bands by calling CQ on a clear spot and
collecting skimmers data. VE7CC cluster software allows setting filters so
that you only see spots for your own call sign.
Now I wonder would such a technique be a violation of not assisted
category. In essence I would not get no outside help in locating,
identifying and working stations in the contest. I just get accurate and up
to date information about propagation which is basically more accurate then
what I might have got with the help of propagation prediction software.
What is contesting public opinion?
