What are some good spotting nets that I can watch? I live in the Southeast USA.

Thanks

With the number of cluster nodes out there and spot propagation being extremely reliable, it shouldn't matter which node you're connected to. There are three types of cluster software and they all filter differently. AR Cluster was the first, then DX Spider and most recently  CC Cluster.

CC Cluster offers far more filtering options than the other two and is extremely well supported. The author of that software is the same author of the CC Cluster User Program (Lee, VE7CC) that you probably use as connectivity software for your loggers. He operates a major node that has incredible bandwith and extremely high reliability. I use his node primarily, despite the latency of it being 3500 miles away and typically 12 hops. I use a local AR Cluster as a secondary node, when necessary, whose latency is a little less.

The only good spotting net is a dead spotting net ;-)
