What PA3S observed had to do with how skimmers copy on-off keying under 
real-world conditions on shortwave.

That has nothing to do with what we had discussed - how skimmers report 
stations on frequencies - even bands - they are not on.

Interesting conclusion about wrong-band spots from S50ARX at 

73, ex-VR2BG/p.
