Think I'm getting a good taste of RTTY Skimmer here. Every time I call CQ on 15 I get about 3 or 4 JA's all zero beat, about S-2 or 3 calling me at the same time. Send 'agn?' and they all call again. Takes 3 or 4 tries to finally get a call out of the mess.

Is there a way to tell it, 'Don't spot me, please?' Think I'll go watch basketball instead. 73

Hi all.
Mario I could agree with you partially. The DL4RCK RTTY was made and worked on field well before any other RTTY Skimmer. Almost two years ago there was a working network of DL4RCK RTTY Skimmer. All those working pretty well. Now I am looking, since almost January, as to make it easy, and the deployment of the VE3NEA Skimmers a lot of busted RTTY calls a lot of multiplier that are not multipliers and a whole plethora of bad call-signs spotted by the newest RTTY Skimmer. By myself my call was spotted as W1AYD several times in between IW1AYD. But also more easy calls that fall under simpler rules are busted since the new and not so bright RTTY Skimmer schema went on. Full stop.
