It is also possible to set this filter directly on the RBN site via their AR
Cluster node. Telnet to arcluster.reversebeacon.net port 7000. The command
is "set dx filter skimmer and unique > 2". You probably want to add
additional constraints to that filter, such as source.

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

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."
