[Skimmertalk] bad frecuencies spot

A couple of additional thoughts.  I don't know what subset of the RBN 
Skimmers VE7CC is using.  Last I knew he was not using the RBN feed per 
se.  Unfortunately, unless you are filtering the spots you receive in 
specific ways, one off-frequency spot may be given the same weight as 50 
that are on-frequency.

My solution to this has been to use the RBN's ARCluster V6 node and its 
"Skimmer and uniques > 2" filtering.  K1TTT has both RBN and traditional 
spots on his node, and he is using ARC V6 as well.  Since this filter 
requires >2 Skimmers to agree on a spot, it effectively cancels out the 
"odd man out."

73, Pete N4ZR
