A lite version is available for free, without Filter and Alarm, But has AD on it.
Thank you to looking for my DXCluster app. It's my first iPhone app, but I wish to make it useful and appreciate by all user.
I will upgrade on a regular basis, with improvement and bug fix. On this page I will announce when I put an update on Apple web site, and then you will have to wait than Apple review it (I hope it will be less than 10 days).
Version 3.9 send to Apple April 16.
Version Lite 1.6 send to Apple April 16.
It's an app to follow the activity on most of the HAM band.
The system is connected in real-time and shows any announce as it's send by the cluster. If you app is going in standby or background mode, the information is not updated anymore, but when the app is back again, the connection is re-established. IN gren you will see if the contact is using LOTW, and on the detail view you will have this information for both, the spotter and the DX contact.
A detailed view is available for any spot, that give clear information on the announce, including Country of both parties.
Send you contact directly to the cluster via the app.
On the filter section, you can specify the band you want to follow as first filter, and then you can specify the CQ or ITU zone and the country, there is no limitation on how many filter you set.
The band is the first filter; so if the band filter is not match, the spot is dropped, if it's matched, then the other filter are applied one after the other, if one match the spot is displayed.For the spoter filter part, you can do a selection on CA/ITU zone and/or country.
Updated the LOTW and the prefix database when ever you what, no need to upgrade the app, just click 'Database update'.
The alarm section let you create an alarm to specific zone (CQ/ITU) or country of the DX, or related spotter. It is checked after the filter as been applied. It consist of the vibration of the iPhone and, if requested, a popup showing it. The alarm is also display in red into the list. Add a sound to an alarm.
And add any sound you wan't through iTune.
Select the cluster of your choice from a list setup on the preferenceof the iPhone.
