[CQ-Contest] 2 bands, 2 sigs, same station

Well, if we're talking about CW Skimmer itself and not the RBN, the CW 
Skimmer waterfall display would clearly show if simultaneous CQ's were 
being sent by the same station.  You could even, of course, record an 
entire contest and play it back later to look for such behavior if the 
RBN spots were to raise suspicions.  All it would require is that the CW 
Skimmers feeding the RBN be set up to record.
