I'm not a BIG contester, But have been contesting since 1975, LONG 
before any of this existed. And as soon as I heard a pileup made by a 
RBN spot I did notice how everyone was "Spot On" (pun intended)

And my first thought if I was to use this RBN network, I would at the 
same time turn on my XIT to slide a tad off the mess some. I thought 
everyone would do that and that this was not a unique thought.  But I 
guess not.
