Hey Doc, that's fine if you take other measures to avoid being spotted 
by a Skimmer, but if you're in fact being spotted on the RBN, doing that 
will simply cause you to be re-spotted much more often than Skimmer's 
normal 10-minute limit.  Talk about unintended consequences!

N6TJ needn't worry - all he has to do is do what he's always done, end 
each QSO just with his callsign.  Of course, he may miss a lot of casual 
ops that way, but nothing's free in the Magic Kingdom. Perhaps, dare I 
suggest, he will want to start sending Skimmer's key words on Sunday, 
when things slow down.

73, Pete N4ZR
