[CQ-Contest] Reverse Beacon Network News - hopefully of general interest

We've just fielded the latest release of the Aggregator - the software 
that forwards spots from RBN contributors' CW Skimmers to the RBN web 

I normally wouldn't announce this on a general forum like this, but the 
new Aggregator has one important breakthrough feature.  Each connected 
Aggregator now receives a report every 5 minutes indicating how its 
receiver's frequency calibration is. This should be an important aid to 
keeping the frequency calibration of RBN spots as good, we hope, as the 
callsign accuracy.  Please let us know what you think.
