Since Hal, N4GG posted his ingenious "what-if" yesterday, I have tried in
vain to think of a legitimate use for data derived via Telnet from a remote
CW Skimmer. Barring evidence of such a use, or even evidence of
significant value to Unlimited class and multi-op stations, I'm inclined to
suggest a simple, blanket ban on use of such data, which to me is
tantamount to the use of a remote receiver anyway.
Meantime, if you want to know what Skimmers in other areas are hearing,
check out http://skimmer.dxwatch.com . Better yet, get on the site, and
call CQ - to see if *you're* being heard in Europe or elsewhere.
