Many of the panadapter programs (e.g. NaP3) will provide its own rx audio
output through the soundcard so essentially you have another receiver with
fully configurable dsp bandwidth (as wide/narrow as you like) , sync AM
etc.  The rx audio derived is very high quality/fidelity (might be a nice
experiment with an Omni 6).

The short answer is no.  The ONLY software that will map Telnet spots on
the bandscope is NaP3 and you must use its built-in Telnet client to
connect independently to a remote node or a local node (which could be
skimmer or an aggregator that merges skimmer with a remote node).  Its
display will be contest-ignorant.
