For those of you who want to know more about the Reverse Beacon Network, 
Felipe, PY1NB has just published a detailed list of Skimmers 
contributing spots to the RBN, at 
<http://www.reversebeacon.net/skimmers/detail.php>.  The new dynamic 
list builds on, and does not replace, the original list of Skimmers, but 
it provides a lot more information.  Most of this will mainly be useful 
to RBN participants - for example, there is a dynamic display of 
frequency accuracy by band, so people can check their Skimmer's 
calibration in real time.  But if you want to know why a given Skimmer 
is not hearing you, for example, you can check the frequency ranges it 
is currently covering.

There is a new post explaining the features of the new list, on the 
Reverse Beacon Network blog at <http://reversebeacon.blogspot.com/>.
