There is confusion on what people mean when they say "spot".
1) I am looking at DX Summit and I don't see myself spotted. Reason,
RBN is not directly tied into DX Summit. W3LPL is a robot with filters that
picks up RBN "spots" and re-spots them on DX Summit. But only does so on
certain DXCC countries. Not sure which.
2) I am looking at a cluster node and immediately see myself spotted.
That's because the cluster node is getting direct feeds from the RBN.
Why isn't DX Summit directly getting RBN spots? No idea.
I hope this settles the confusion.
