Xdx is a GTK+ 2.0 tcp/ip DX-cluster and ON4KST chat client.
Xdx is a dedicated network client for amateur radio operators who want to exchange DX (long distance) radio information. After connection to a DX-cluster, xdx will show DX-spots in a list and other messages ('To all' and WWV/WCY messages) in a text widget.
What is a DX Cluster?
A DX Cluster is a means for Amateur (Ham) Radio operators to tell each other, in realtime, about DX stations (other interesting or rare Amateur Radio stations all over the world). Users who are connected to a DX Cluster are capable of announcing DX spots and related announcements, send personal talk messages, send and receive mail
messages, search and retrieve archived data, and access data from information databases.
Here are some key features of "Xdx":
In a setting dialog you can change various settings for xdx, like autologin and saving of dx-spots, WWV/WCY information, chat messages and WX information to separate files for later use. There is also basic support for hamlib, the rigctl binary is called when you double-click on a dx-spot. This will set your rig's frequency for quickly grabbing a spot from the air. Xdx can colorize the cluster prompt and can highlight words and play sounds through the chat sidebar.
Your favourite web browser or mail program will be started if you click on a link in the chat window. There is also basic support for smileys while chatting.
