Rich, FWIW, I think there is very little benefit from using multiple clusters, or ones in distant locations.  Now that the whole system is Internet-based, rather than the old RF cluster network, it makes a lot more sense to choose a cluster based on the filtering that it offers for choosing which spots you want - location of the spotter, band, mode and so on.

For spots, please use your favorite 
"retail" DX cluster.

I've been away from the radio for ten years or so.  In getting reset, I'm  trying other loggers.  I used VE7CC long ago, it still seems like a good choice.  TheDXLab start up includes example clusters and I'm considering dropping the Irish cluster to add VE7CC.

Previously, I used VE7CC and a cluster south of my QTH, and one in Reno, Nv.  I'm in northern California.   I have a little pistol station.  To get started, these three seem like a good restart.  I wonder whether it would be useful to have  JA and an east coast cluster?  I'm not sure about adding in a European or other distant clusters.  Would appreciate opinions and discussion.
