Re: Anyone using DX-TELNET ?

Actually, my comment was to another reflector and I have no idea how it ended up here on this one. I was in reference to a couple other contacts which were made on the other reflector regarding 10 & 15 m operations on FT4TA's frequency.  This is not back-peddling, just the absolute truth.  I'm truly embarrassed that it wound up on this reflector.

I comment very, very little on this, or any reflector, for that matter, for this exact reason.

Well said N9RWC. No further input on your points is needed on my end. The ONLY thing I would add, is if a disparaging comment is to be made, never assume the reader understands your intended meaning. Every country has its fair share of less than stellar Ops as it is human nature, not a specific country or grouping of same, to be a jerk if one chooses to be such.
 
The explanation of “I was referring to just a few ops, not all.  The ones I was referring to were the ops on FT4TA  (Tromelin Is, DXpedition)” is most likely, in my worthless opinion, 100% truthful, but to the offended it now seems like a back-pedaling and a C.Y.A. move. The explanation above should have been clearly noted in the initial comment thus would have not offended the normally pleasant EU ops that have already responded or remain in silent agreement. I am a USA OP, all my life, and I also was a bit surprised by the comment and to be truthful knew the well-deserved backlash was about to begin.

Re: Anyone using DX-TELNET ?

Ray Clements
 

I don't think that Jerry was referring to you in particular, anyone from the 070 club,  or even to European amateurs as a whole. I know that I have met some very courteous Europeans on the air and I am certain he has also. He was referring to those selfish operators (who happened to have European call signs) who intentionally interfered with others trying to make contacts with the DXpedition. 

Many amateurs do not realize that when stations are on opposite sides of the world, there are only brief periods of the day when both stations are in darkness  and can be operated on the 160, 80 and 40 meter bands. Likewise, there are only brief periods of the day when both stations are in daylight and can be operated on 10 and 15 meters. Good DXpedition operators realize the requirements of propagation  and take calls only from countries on the far side of the world during these brief band openings. As soon as the bands close to those countries, they resume contacts with other stations who are lesser distance.

The distance between Northern Illinois and Tromelin Island is about 10,000 miles making it close to the anti-pole for us here. Thus, the periods when stations like Tromelin can be reached on anything other than 20 meters are quite brief, especially on 160 meters.  The same thing occurred with Amsterdam Island. When selfish stations who can more easily contact the DX station interfere with contacts between the DXpedition and portions of the world that have only brief band openings, they are disrupting the careful planning of the DXpedition. These DXpeditions count on making contacts with all areas of the world, because they count on all areas for funding.

Jerry N9AVY is a personal friend of mine here in the Chicago suburbs. He is an Official Observer for the ARRL and is always looking for operators who violate regulations and standards of common courtesy.  Believe me, there are plenty of dirty operators here as well, such as the SSB operators in a recent phone contest who intentionally worked in the portions of the bands reserved for Data and CW only here in the States. 

Here in our local area we have a several US operators who are banned from using a local VHF repeater because they are DIRTY US OPS who interfere with the enjoyment of other by playing music (strictly forbidden by the FCC) over the air. Thus, DIRTY OPS are not confined to any country, or any continent. No matter where they are located, they detract from the overall enjoyment of the hobby by those of us who try to be courteous operators.

By the way, I have found 070 club operators to be some of the finest, most courteous operators on the air, so I am certain N9AVY was not referring to any club members when he made his comment.

Re: Anyone using DX-TELNET ?

I was referring to just a few ops , not all.  The ones I was referring to were the ops on FT4TA  (Tromelin Is, DXpedition) who were sending CQ to interfere with DXpedition.
We have some here on this side of pond as well. 

Was trying to get QSO and could not hear station because interference was so bad. Tempers were running short for everyone. It always happens with rare DX stations, only this time it was worse. 

European  PSK ops are gentlemen and that's why I like PSK. I was referring to SSB & CW ops who were misbehaving.

Sorry that you took offence.

Hi everybody.

The reports of my demise have been greatly exagerated! I'm still around and kicking. It's been tuna fishing time here off the Southern California coast, and I've done my share this season. I've landed 63 yellowfin ranging from 15 lbs, to 2 fish above 75 lbs, and 2 above 100 lbs.

My query: Does anyone use DX TELNET for viewing spots and spotting?

My main frame computer crashed. I've replaced it and I'm in the process of reinstalling all software.

All the important stuff is up and running, all digital software is installed and working properly, but I'm having a time with DX TELNET, in particular, setting the receive filters. I don't want to receive spots about stations located in the US. I don't want to see spots from stations that located outside US & VE.

I just can't see how to adjust the filters for that.

Re: Anyone using DX-TELNET ?

doesn't directly answer the question, but DXLab's SpotCollector has very easy filtering functionality, and can use multiple cluster sources as input.  There's a specific filter for spot origin.

For actual telnet cluster commands, google found the DXSpider user manual ...  I don't know which clusters use that, or if other programs have similar commands; but hopefully it's a starting point.    http://www.dxcluster.org/main/usermanual_en.html
