Filters

The filter parameter setup page is displayed whenever you tap the Filter button on the DX spot display.

Filter Setup Parameters

The Filter Setup page is organized in five sections:

  • Spot Filter Status:
  • DX Alert:
  • Accept Spots From:
  • Modes:
  • Bands:

Spot Filter Status:

The Spot Filter Status switch is used to turn filtering on and off. In most cases setting parameters in other filter sections will automatically turn the status switch on.

When you turn the status switch off, filter parameters stay intact. All DX spots are allowed to pass unfiltered. To turn filtering back on with the original parameters, just set the Status switch back on.

DX Alert:

The DX Alert section defines the parameters to cause an audible or visual alert when there is a match with the DX Spot. The visual alert displays the DX spot as dark red letters on a light red background

Alarm: When the Alarm switch when turned on, an audible alert is generated whenever the DX spot matches the alert criteria defined below.

Callsign: Enter the call sign or partial call in this field. You can enter multiple call signs by separating them with a comma.

DXCC: Enter the DXCC prefix in this field. You can enter multiple DXCC prefixes by separating them with a comma. For example, V5,5B alert whenever DXCC prefix V5-Namibia or 5B-Cyprus occur.

CQ: Enter the CQ zone in this field. You can enter multiple CQ zones by separating them with a comma.

ITU: Enter the ITU zone in this field. You can enter multiple ITU zones by separating them with a comma.

Accept Spots From:

The Accept Spots From section allows you to filter the spotter based upon their DXCC prefix, CQ or ITU zones. All fields in this section allow for multiple entries by separating them with a comma. If you enter data in more than one field, then all fields must match ("AND" condition) to see their spot.

DXCC: Enter the DXCC prefix(s) of the spotter to accept their spots. For example, to accept spots from North America you could enter K,VE,XE

CQ: Enter the CQ zone(s) of the spotter to accept their spots. For example, to accept spots from the United States enter 3,4,5

ITU: Enter the ITU zone(s) of the spotter to accept their spots.

Modes:

The Mode section allows you to filter the spot based upon mode. The following mode settings are supported.

All: Select All when you want to see all modes.

Phone: Select Phone when you want to see spots in the phone portion of the band. Bands that do not contain a phone segment (30 meters for example) will pass all modes.

CW: Select CW when you want to see spots in the CW portion of a band.

Bands:
