>>If<< Skimmer were released for use during SS CW in Single-Op, I believe
it would win almost every Section/Division in which a credible installation
was used. (Credible=full time SDR second radio in use with a moderately
skilled operator.)  

A non-user "radioman" who wished to compete for some walnut would certainly
be somewhat "underwhelmed" about their chances of winning.
