There are several times where i have been able to hear the stations spotted by LPL and worked them.
But there are also times where i don't hear them. So i would not necessarily classify the LPL spots as
totally useless and would take a raincheck on making that call Smiley

I think that automated robots like LPL's skimmer have no place sending spots to the cluster... first of all just because you can hear 'em doesn't mean you can work 'em. Secondly, people being able to spam the cluster like this.

I would have thought that RBN was for skimmers and other assorted robots.

I can hear everything LPL can based on spots that I've seen though.

Exactly what antennas are wired to the W3LPL skimmer, I'm not always sure.

I'm physically close to W3LPL and on 40M and 80M, where I have a pretty good antenna, I can very often hear what his skimmer antenna is spotting. His spots are very very useful to me. Clearly his antennas are better but if his skimmer is copying uncommon DX, I have a very good chance of copying it by ear.

On 10/15/20 and 160, where my antennas are clearly inferior, it's more hit or miss, sure. But still worth checking it out.

In that case would you go along with classifying his spots as MOSTLY useless?
