I often access the cluster from a smart phone. Most of the good DX web sites are advertising and displaying graphics, with filtering tools etc. While this is excellent for regular internet use, it’s not really desirable on a phone interface. Also, page refreshing is often a hinderance!
I have written a very light DX Cluster web site with these problems in mind. It is able to detect common device screens (eg. iPhone) and is specifically designed to be extremely lightweight and simple. There are two versions:
http://dxlite.g7vjr.org/ - The DX Cluster, with unlimited storage
http://skimmer.g7vjr.org/ - Skimmer spots for the last 24 hours max.
Choose the site you want and then you can apply the following options. In my examples, I am using dxlite.g7vjr.org.
To get the output in XML:
To display the DXCC country info (as determined by Club Log):
To search in a particular band:
or for 6m up:
To search for a particular callsign (or prefix):
To specify how many results (default 50, maximum 500):
To have the page automatically reload every 30 seconds, use refresh=1:
To see spots by, and about, a specific call, use spotter:
If you find the dx= flag too broad (because it uses sub-strings) you can try dxexact instead, eg:
To filter by the spotter (eg. “spots from stations beginning with G”) use:
To filter by DXCC ID (as per the ADIF spec) use dxcc:
To filter by state (USA) use state - for example, to find spots for Idaho:
To filter out most FT4 and FT8 QSOs (but also inevitably filter some other modes on similar frequencies):
You can use most these arguments together, for example:
Lastly, as I like to follow CWOps members and FOC members online, I've added a filter for these clubs too:
