No, it must also contain some element that identifies itself as a CQ (CQ 
or TEST), and probably will need several repeats of your callsign, 
because of the portable designator.  And of course, nobody will be using 
Skimmer spots in an SSB contest.  Finally, you will presumably be 
operating in a phone segment, and most of us are using receivers that 
don't go that high.  For example, my 20M coverage cuts off at 14092.
