thanks for all the replies.
I don´t know if it´s a better way to fill N1MM bandmap with Skimmer spots,
than the N1MM Telnet windows?
What´s the RBN's ARCluster V6 Pete talked about? It´s a software? Could you
please give me the url to download it' I cannot found it.
What I noticed was that I wanted to go to a spot, click the call in the
bandmap and the radio (K3) went to 28033.5 and finally I founded the station
in 28032.5 for example, not in 28033.4 or 28033.3 that will not be a problem
This was strange, K1TTT´s spot in 28119 when I was running in 28062:
NC7J K NA 28062.6 10m CW5W CX SA CQ 10
W3LPL K NA 28062.8 10m CW5W CX SA CQ 26
K1TTT K NA 28119.3 10m CW5W CX SA CQ 10
W8WTS K NA 28062.7 10m CW5W CX SA CQ 18
N2AET K NA 28063.3 10m CW5W CX SA CQ 24

I think what Jorge was seeing is an artifact of the software problem
that has been fixed in the latest release.
During the 160m contest I would be running a frequency for a long time.
I would see a needed station pop onto my bandmap. I would click it to
work him. Almost immediately my call sign would appear on his frequency
after I called him. I would then resume my run frequency a kHz or more
up the band. It would take "a while" for my call sign to reappear on my
So there would be a period of time where my call sign was displayed on a
frequency but I had "long gone" from that frequency. This happened a
handful of times during the contest. I was going to write it up, but
when I came to the reflector I saw the problem had already been
identified and was being fixed.
If this was happening to me, there were probably instances where Jorge
got caught in this "station disappearing act" during the contest.
