ClusterClient for DX Clusters | M0PZT.com

ClusterClient

This is a simple DX Cluster telnet client that I wrote to offer an easy way of monitoring activity on the DX Cluster network.  The initial version featured a basic text window which displayed in received traffic/DX spots.  In later versions, a "Smart Mode" was added which gave you the option of having the DX spots in a list/grid along with a band filter so you could see only the band/s of interest.

Please note that this is a Windows application and I work exclusively in Microsoft Windows - If you're running Linux or a Mac, I can't help you.

Download ClusterClient v1.73 Setup.exe
This is the full-installer for first-time users.

Download ClusterClient v1.73 Update.zip
This is the latest EXE - existing users need only this file.  Simply replace your current EXE file with the one in this ZIP file.

You can enter normal commands such as sh/dx on 6m using the Comments/Commands textbox (and pressing enter).  If you want to post a DX "spot", you can just fill in the boxes and press enter, saving you the hassle of remembering the actual command.  The settings for ClusterClient are edited directly in the ClusterClient.ini file which can be opened in NotePad.  For automatic Cluster login, just enter your Callsign (and optional Password) and ensure that AutoLogin=1
