And in the spirit of always going too far, is telling someone you are
going to be in the contest a sked? In an effort to boost participation
on some lesser used bands, we have some arranged times for certain
frequencies (although this is for all stations of course). We also
have a mobile window some KHz below the suggested frequencies for
likely weak mobiles. All could be considered skeds.
I'm not a fan of spotting, self or otherwise. But we have to be
careful about the definitions.......
