Recent publicity surrounding VE7CC's beginning to carry FT8 spots
suggests to me that it is time for "retail" DX clusters to provide an
"opt-out" option similar to the one that many now provide for RBN
spots.This could easily be done with a "set FT8" option similar to the
"set Skimmer" command now in wide use.
Sorry if this seems OT, but it doesn't appear that there is a
cluster-centric reflector with sufficient reach and besides, an
unavoidable glut of FT8 spots would not be in contesters' interest.
