[Skimmertalk] Auto rotation of config files

So I have Skimmer Server up and running, I select the three bands that I 
want to skim and hit apply.   I am seeing CQ Spots on my telnet 
connection.  So then I start the RBN Aggregator and I see the spots 
being sent to the RBN.    The SkimSrv.ini file has been changed, so I 
copy and rename the config file to a new name that indicates the bands 
that will be skimmed.  I repeat this process for the four configuations 
files that will allow me to rotate the skimmer to different bands based 
on time of day with the RBN Aggregator.

So now I go into the Aggregator ini Files tab and load the config files 
and select the times when the particular file will be active.  After 
doing this I see the skimmerServer is restarted with the correct bands 
selected, I also see the CPU load changing too.  I do not however see 
any CQ spots detected and I do not see the decouders in the activity 
window or ifn the decoder box change.  They remain at 0.  I also see no 
spots going to the RBN.

So what am I doing wrong?
