In the "Telnet" tab of SkimSrv, disable "Post only CQ Spots" and select
Normal validation.

Adjust the segments to cover the Skimmer frequencies as described at the
bottom of my original post, quoted below.

According to the RBN, the K1TTT skimmer is only covering:


So only the NCDXF 14.100 MHz beacon is in the middle of the covered ranges.

Finally, note that the Aggregator program has a hard-coded list of NCDXF
beacons, so the new KH6RS beacon won't show up in the RBN logs until W3OA
returns from K5P and updates the Aggregator.

If necessary, adjust the CWSegments in your SkimSrv.ini file to include the
