Because spots persist on the bandmap for 10 minutes, or whatever time 
the user chooses.  I think CW Skimmers repeat spots every 10 minutes.

I think the 10 minute interval chosen by N1MM is appropriate.  I would 
probably do an additional spot if I changed CQ frequency. Maybe N1MM 
could incorporate that feature too, and restart the 10 minute timer.

I plan to self-spot on SSB only.
