With these new spot sources online, SpotCollector automatically integrates all of these spot streams into its local Spot Database:



The Source column added on the right makes it easy to see the contributions from multiple spot sources; the appearance of stations operating in SSB and JT6M also reveals that the spot sources have been augmented. 

While we've been exploring SpotCollector, every new Spot Database Entry is being checked against the award progress in my log to see if any station QRV would advance my DXCC or WAZ award progress.
