I think this came up before. If a 2m repeater can identify itself with
morse code, why can't an SSB operator? One could send a conventional CW CQ
every five minutes or so, and takes only about 5 seconds to ID at 40 RPM.
Should be enough to get spotted by RBN.
The problem is many skimmers today don't monitor phone segments. And nobody
is expecting to see RBN spots there. But just an idea...:)
