[Skimmertalk] please calibrate skimmer servers!

My guest here is trying out the combined feed of skimmers for wpx and is
finding lots of spots that are off frequency by 200hz or more which puts
them out of the cw filter passband.  Please, if you are running the skimmer
server use the calibration capability to get your spots on frequency.  It is
best to calibrate using signals on the higher frequency bands as the error
is bigger the higher you go, so calibrate against a known signal on 10m if
you can, that makes the error smaller as you go down to lower frequencies.
