[CQ-Contest] Spotting - not

As I understand, the cluster network is connected with the RBN and so all
cluster nodes get the same number of spots unless there are filters set.
I does not matter whether is is a packet, web or RBN originated spot.

When I say that I wasn't spotted on DX Summit, it has NOTHING to do with
RBN.  I of course was picked up on RBN.  It obvious within 2 of 3 CQs there
is a pile that dies down after maybe 5 - 10 mins.


What I am referring to is DX Summit.  Remember DX Summit?  It's the place
that picks up the manual spots.  

Those that doubt it, ask yourself this?   With skimmers populating bandmaps
constantly, why would you all of a sudden get what sounds like a packet
cluster pileup after having been on a frequency for over an hour?  Its
because it's a packet cluster pileup - from a manual spot.
