[CQ-Contest] Easier Access to RBN Spots *and* Traditional Cluster Spots

Just an alert that many DX cluster nodes are now carrying RBN spots in 
addition to traditional spots, so you don't have to go to the 
(potentially overloaded) RBN Telnet nodes for them.  If you go to 
<http://www.dxcluster.info/telnet/index.php> and check only the boxes 
for AR Cluster and CC Cluster, you will find cluster nodes that offer 
that option identified in the left-hand column. I counted 36 world-wide, 
and many more still using older versions of ARCluster who could readily 
update.  Both ARCluster and CC Cluster offer extensive filtering options 
particularly designed for handling Skimmer spots.
