Sorry, Mike, but the "computerized logging is assistance" mantra is a worn

Computer logging simply automates the record-keeping process, but does not
perform any "radioman-like" functions.

Skimmer performs "radioman-like" functions in that it autonomously gathers
information in realtime from a radio and feeds that information to the
station operator.
