If your own local (or nearby) skimmer is spotting your call (or your
station) just about every time you call CQ, I think that would clearly be a
violation of the following, from the official rules
*IX. GENERAL RULES FOR ALL ENTRANTS:*
4. Self-spotting or asking to be spotted is not permitted.
One can argue over the lack of a precise definition, but the intent of the
rule is pretty clear.
