[Skimmertalk] RBN Publishes New Callsign Pattern File

As of today, a new patt3ch.list file is available on the RBN website.  
Barring human error (I should be so lucky), the new file should 
incorporate all the new callsign patterns identified since the last list 
in January.  In particular this includes Spanish one-letter suffixes ( 
ED2@, etc.).  The next time RBN nodes restart the Aggregator software, 
they will be prompted to download the new list and replace the one they 
have been using. This is all automatic, and takes only a few seconds.

As new callsign patterns emerge, such as the one-letter suffixes, please 
let me know so I can add them to the queue for the next iteration.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the CW Skimmer software, it uses 
the pattern file to determine how many iterations of a callsign it must 
hear before it is posted.  The purpose is to prevent busted spots 
resulting from decoding random sequences of characters and mistaking 
them for callsigns.
