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.
