New Skimmer Technology to be Deployed
Word though the grapevine is that there is an alternative version of the Skimmer automatic cw decoder and analyzer program in the works. This new version, being developed independently, will be deployed from a remote receiver site in 5N-land to monitor the DX bands worldwide. The alternative Skimmer program will decode callsigns, just like the original Skimmer, but will also have the capability to execute automatic lookup of all calls, using QRZ or other callsign database resources, and will automatically generate emails to all stations with offers to participate in a lucrative scheme to help transfer several million dollars out of the country from an abandoned bank account. The new program will be entitled Scammer. Coming soon to an email account near you.
