[Skimmertalk] 10m beacon

Dear Dai - Please don't connect more than one receiver to the RBN on a 
given band segment at the same time.  Even with different SSIDs, this 
results in multiple spots, because SSIDs are not passed on through the 
RBN. Of course, one RX covering 28000-28100, and another covering 
281001-28300 is just fine, as is any other combination of multiple 
receivers, so long as they do not overlap in coverage.

The Aggregator can accept additional receivers on its Secondary Skimmers 
tab.  It recognizes as beacons any station signing [callsign]/B. There 
is no need to put them on any sort of list.

I hope this helps.

73, Pete N4ZR
