Depends on what you mean by a unique multiplier. Obviously a new 3Y0
callsign (or any other call not previously heard in a contest) won't be
spotted. However, Skimmer's paranoid validation mode also checks against a
watchlist that you can create yourself. That raises the possibility that
you could build a list of known DXpedition callsigns expected to be active
in a given contest, and add them yourself.
If you are operating in assisted/unlimited class, K1TTT's Wintelnetx offers
the potential for passing *both* packet and Skimmer spots to your logging
