DX Hunter – The amateur radio App for DX-enthusiasts
DX-Hunter is an application for amateur radio operators, short wave listeners and all the people who want to know what is going on at the amateur radio frequencies.
See with DX-Hunter which amateur radio stations that are still missing in your log book are on air right now… wherever you are… whenever you like… Live!
IPAD USERS: There is a special version available that is taking advantage of the iPad canvas (version 2p).
! ! ! This App will only be available for download until 14th Sep 2015 ! ! !
But I will try to keep the service functional for at least 12 more months (Sep 2016).
DX-HUNTER CAN ALERT YOU WHEN STATIONS YOU NEED ARE APPEARING ON THE BANDS EVEN IF YOUR APP ISN’T RUNNING (push notifications (free of charge)).
Decide, whether you want to receive spots/alerts of stations…
…where the entity/country is still missing in your log
…where a certain band of an entity/country is still missing
…where the entity/country is not yet confirmed (QSL)
…where a certain band of an entity/country is not yet confirmed
…which you have not worked before
…which you have not worked on a particular band yet
or all stations (without filtering worked ones).
Additionally alerts can be limited to certain modes, bands (different band-settings per mode possible), continents, CQ-zones, spotter locations, etc..
Most nonsense-spots are filtered automatically to avoid alerting you unnecessarily.
Spots of the same station (same call, mode, band and spotter continent) are also filtered if they are within 1 hour.
All that filters together with the dupe suppression are making DX-Hunter your optimal tool for contests or field-days for instance.
Alerts/Spots of stations that use the LoTW are marked with an asterisk (*).
Tap on a call to see the QRZ.com page of the according station.
Login to the online user-account created for you to up- and download your logfiles for easy filtering and QSL.
The DX-Hunter-Server is connected to the worldwide DX-Cluster-Network. The server fetches and analyses the spots made there and forward them to your DX-Hunter app, regarding to your log book entries and/or app settings where they will be clearly represented (incl. a world map with animated pin plus latest IOTA informations).
All informations received are stored in a tiny database on your device so that they are accessible even when you are not connected to a network or for looking them through later on.
There is a huge amount of available settings which will allow you to customize the app regarding to your needs (see screenshots).
If your app isn’t running, the DX-Hunter-Server will store the alerts for you meanwhile and transfer them automatically, as soon as you start up your app (alerts of the last 4 hours, up to 300 entries are stored).
– NO need to select the already worked entities manually, simply upload your logfile from your favorite log-book software.
– Simple logfile-download of worked stations for re-importing in your external log book program.
