[CQ-Contest] Testing RBN with Writelog, Win-Test and whatever else...

The RBN team been doing extensive testing with the Reverse Beacon 
Network, N1MM Logger and CC User.  During CQWWCW, the RBN *averaged* 9.9 
spots per second for the 48 hours.  The two programs named have come a 
long way, but that data rate poses significant challenges for code 
designed to handle 1/10 as many spots, and it would be good to get that 
work done before the ARRL DX CW contest.

Are there authors or sophisticated users of Win-Test, Writelog, TR4W, 
CT, NA and whatever else is out there that would be willing to test with 
us?  We are using a simulated CQWW/ARRLDX "flood" at ~15 spots per 
second, which is manually throttled and controlled (and which has a 
propensity to crash DXSpider in some server environments), so this will 
require some pre-arrangement.  If you're interested, please contact me 
*off the reflector* <n4zr at contesting.com>.
