VE3SUN DX Monitor
Tools for the Intelligent DXer
Download the latest version
DX Monitor is a standalone Windows program which monitors
the DX announcements available on the internet at
HB9DRV and connections to one or more
local and international DX Cluster Telnet Servers.
New DX spots are displayed in the main window with user selectable bands, fonts, colors, and highlighting
of alerts and local spotters. A band map tracks the current stations on the air by frequency. Maps
show the openings with buttons to select bands and times.
The predicted signal strength of the spotted station at your QTH can be displayed with each spot. A 24 hour
propagation prediction by band takes only one click.
DX Monitor builds a database of DX Spots, Announcements, and WWV information
and includes many tools which can be
used by DXers to improve their chances of working a new country.
