[CQ-Contest] When do we spot? Should it be required?

In my opinion it will go unspotted. Two reasons I see :
- Some SDR receivers (like my very cheap Softrock) have limited bandwidth and only listen to the CW part of the band
- There is setting that some might have turned on which tell to ignore spots outside the CW part of the band
