xCluster is a visual display of dx cluster activity. DX spots are received via telnet or web services and displayed in a tabular form and plotted on a map of the world. You can filter the spots by call sign or band. You may also configure it to only show FT4/FT8 spots.
Spots are created using the latitude and longitude of the dx station and spotter. The program has a call parsing component to determine the country for each call but can use QRZ.com for more accurate location data. Lookup priority is QRZ.com with the the call parser as a backup.
This program as a programming exercise and also because I use VE3SUN DX Monitor on Windows and wanted to fully migrate to the Mac. It does not currently have a lot of functionality other than spot display and call and band filtering but I will slowly add to it as time goes by. Feel free to add suggestions in the comments on w6op.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add things as I go along.
I will not not be adding any rig control code in the near future and if I do it will only be for the Flex Radio 6xxx series.
