wrongo buckero! The original spotting network was built by contesters, for
contesters and often was disconnected between contests in the beginning. I
was the one in the YCCC network that pushed to keep it connected during the
week so contesters could check out their hardware/software before a contest
instead of just on Friday night... then it was found by dx'ers.
