Skimming spots with flex

I'm wondering before I deep dive in to this if someone could tell me how many bands you might be able to skim at once with a 6400 or 6600?  I'm assuming 2 and 4 respectively?  I have a 6400 that sits idle 99.9% of the time and figure it might as well be doing something for me or the community.  It's just a hot spare in case my 6600 dies or in case I want to run a contest M/S which is very unlikely.

You can skim on as many bands as you can put slices up. In order to start, check out Slice-Master and CW Skimmer. Install both, and you can populate your bandmap immediately.

Advanced (optional) use cases:
Install RBN aggregator to send your spots to the world. 
Install WintelnetX and combine external feed with your own.
