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.
