I'm trying to find a data source for real time propagation.
The RBN (Reverse Beacon Network) is one source
The PSKReporter is another
And the NCDXF Beacon Network and Faros is another
I did find commercial sources of data - the Giro site and the Digisondes, but that data seems really esoteric and not something I think I could get (via ftp).
SpotCollector connects to up to 6 spot sources: 4 Telnet Clusters, a local Packet Cluster, and DX Summit. It maintains a database containing one entry for each active DX Station that keeps track of from where each active DX station was spotted
. This database can be simultaneously displayed in tabular form
, on a world map
, and on a bandspread
; the tabular and world map views can be independently filtered. The tabular and bandspread views are color-coded to indicate "need" (based on your DXing objectives and logged QSOs), active LotW participation, and eQSL.cc AG participation. Running statistics
by band and continent are maintained.
If desired, one of SpotCollector's 6 spot sources can be connected to the Reverse Beacon Network
SpotCollector is a component of the freeware DXLab Suite
, which also includes the ability to monitor NCDXF beacons
