Exactly. As a casual contester, but serious low-band DXer, I simply would
not operate without access to the cluster. It's not that I want to be
spoonfed - I send far more to the cluster than I ever work off it. But with
new ones hard to come by, I just can't risk missing that ONE critical spot
during the 48 hours.
