12. The DXSpider Command Reference

12.1 accept

accept Set a filter to accept something

Create a filter to accept something

There are 2 types of filter, accept and reject. See HELP FILTERING for more info.

12.2 accept/announce [0-9] <pattern>

accept/announce [0-9] <pattern> Set an 'accept' filter line for announce

Create an 'accept this announce' line for a filter.

An accept filter line means that if the announce matches this filter it is passed onto the user. See HELP FILTERING for more info. Please read this to understand how filters work - it will save a lot of grief later on.

You can use any of the following things in this line:-

  info <string>            eg: iota or qsl
  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  origin_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,NH
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_state <states>
  channel <prefixes>
  wx 1                     filter WX announces
  dest <prefixes>          eg: 6MUK,WDX      (distros)

some examples:-

  acc/ann dest 6MUK
  acc/ann 2 by_zone 14,15,16
  (this could be all on one line: acc/ann dest 6MUK or by_zone 14,15,16)

or

  acc/ann by G,M,2 

for american states

  acc/ann by_state va,nh,ri,nh

You can use the tag 'all' to accept everything eg:

  acc/ann all

but this probably for advanced users...

12.3 accept/spots [0-9] <pattern>

accept/spots [0-9] <pattern> Set an 'accept' filter line for spots

Create an 'accept this spot' line for a filter.

An accept filter line means that if the spot matches this filter it is passed onto the user. See HELP FILTERING for more info. Please read this to understand how filters work - it will save a lot of grief later on.

You can use any of the following things in this line:-

  freq <range>           eg: 0/30000 or hf or hf/cw or 6m,4m,2m
  on <range>             same as 'freq'
  call <prefixes>        eg: G,PA,HB9
  info <string>          eg: iota or qsl
  by <prefixes>            
  call_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  call_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  call_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  call_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  origin <prefixes>
  channel <prefixes>

'call' means the callsign that has spotted 'by' whoever.

For frequencies, you can use any of the band names defined in SHOW/BANDS and you can use a subband name like: cw, rtty, data, ssb - thus: hf/ssb. You can also just have a simple range like: 0/30000 - this is more efficient than saying simply: freq HF (but don't get too hung up about that)

some examples:-

  acc/spot 1 on hf/cw
  acc/spot 2 on vhf and (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

You can use the tag 'all' to accept everything, eg:

  acc/spot 3 all

for US states

  acc/spots by_state VA,NH,RI,MA,ME

but this probably for advanced users...

12.4 accept/wcy [0-9] <pattern>

accept/wcy [0-9] <pattern> set an 'accept' WCY filter

It is unlikely that you will want to do this, but if you do then you can filter on the following fields:-

  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  channel <prefixes>

There are no examples because WCY Broadcasts only come from one place and you either want them or not (see UNSET/WCY if you don't want them).

This command is really provided for future use.

See HELP FILTER for information.

12.5 accept/wwv [0-9] <pattern>

accept/wwv [0-9] <pattern> set an 'accept' WWV filter

It is unlikely that you will want to do this, but if you do then you can filter on the following fields:-

  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  channel <prefixes>

for example

  accept/wwv by_zone 4

is probably the only useful thing to do (which will only show WWV broadcasts by stations in the US).

See HELP FILTER for information.

12.6 announce <text>

announce <text> Send an announcement to LOCAL users only

<text> is the text of the announcement you wish to broadcast

12.7 announce full <text>

announce full <text> Send an announcement cluster wide

This will send your announcement cluster wide

12.8 apropos <string>

apropos <string> Search help database for <string>

Search the help database for <string> (it isn't case sensitive), and print the names of all the commands that may be relevant.

12.9 blank [<string>] [<nn>]

blank [<string>] [<nn>] Print nn (default 1) blank lines (or strings)

In its basic form this command prints one or more blank lines. However if you pass it a string it will replicate the string for the width of the screen (default 80) and then print that one or more times, so:

  blank 2

prints two blank lines

  blank - 

prints a row of - characters once.

  blank abc

prints 'abcabcabcabcabcabc....'

This is really only of any use in a script file and you can print a maximum of 9 lines.

12.10 bye

bye Exit from the cluster

This will disconnect you from the cluster

12.11 chat <group> <text>

chat <group> <text> Chat or Conference to a group

It is now possible to JOIN a group and have network wide conferencing to that group. DXSpider does not (and probably will not) implement the AK1A conference mode as this seems very limiting, is hardly used and doesn't seem to work too well anyway.

This system uses the existing ANN system and is compatible with both other DXSpider nodes and AK1A clusters (they use ANN/<group>).

You can be a member of as many "groups" as you want. To join a group type:-

  JOIN FOC    (where FOC is the group name)

To leave a group type:-

  LEAVE FOC

You can see which groups you are in by typing:-

  STAT/USER

and you can see whether your mate is in the group, if he connects to the same node as you, by typing:-

  STAT/USER g1tlh

To send a message to a group type:-

  CHAT FOC hello everyone

or

  CH #9000 hello I am back

See also JOIN, LEAVE, SHOW/CHAT

12.12 clear/announce [1|all]

clear/announce [1|all] Clear a announce filter line

This command allows you to clear (remove) a line in a annouce filter or to remove the whole filter.

see CLEAR/SPOTS for a more detailed explanation.

12.13 clear/route [1|all]

clear/route [1|all] Clear a route filter line

This command allows you to clear (remove) a line in a route filter or to remove the whole filter.

see CLEAR/SPOTS for a more detailed explanation.

12.14 clear/spots [0-9|all]

clear/spots [0-9|all] Clear a spot filter line

This command allows you to clear (remove) a line in a spot filter or to remove the whole filter.

If you have a filter:-

  acc/spot 1 on hf/cw
  acc/spot 2 on vhf and (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

and you say:-

  clear/spot 1

you will be left with:-

  acc/spot 2 on vhf and (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

If you do:

  clear/spot all

the filter will be completely removed.

12.15 clear/wcy [1|all]

clear/wcy [1|all] Clear a WCY filter line

This command allows you to clear (remove) a line in a WCY filter or to remove the whole filter.

see CLEAR/SPOTS for a more detailed explanation.

12.16 clear/wwv [1|all]

clear/wwv [1|all] Clear a WWV filter line

This command allows you to clear (remove) a line in a WWV filter or to remove the whole filter.

see CLEAR/SPOTS for a more detailed explanation.

12.17 dbavail

dbavail Show a list of all the Databases in the system

Title says it all really, this command lists all the databases defined in the system. It is also aliased to SHOW/COMMAND.

12.18 dbshow <dbname> <key>

dbshow <dbname> <key> Display an entry, if it exists, in a database

This is the generic user interface to the database to the database system. It is expected that the sysop will add an entry to the local Aliases file so that users can use the more familiar AK1A style of enquiry such as:

  SH/BUCK G1TLH

but if he hasn't and the database really does exist (use DBAVAIL or SHOW/COMMAND to find out) you can do the same thing with:

  DBSHOW buck G1TLH

12.19 directory

directory List messages

12.20 directory <from>-<to>

directory <from>-<to> List messages <from> message <to> message

List the messages in the messages directory.

If there is a 'p' one space after the message number then it is a personal message. If there is a '-' between the message number and the 'p' then this indicates that the message has been read.

You can use shell escape characters such as '*' and '?' in the <call> fields.

You can combine some of the various directory commands together eg:-

   DIR TO G1TLH 5

or

   DIR SUBJECT IOTA 200-250

You can abbreviate all the commands to one letter and use ak1a syntax:-

   DIR/T G1* 10
   DIR/S QSL 10-100 5

12.21 directory <nn>

directory <nn> List last <nn> messages

12.22 directory all

directory all List all messages

12.23 directory from <call>

directory from <call> List all messages from <call>

12.24 directory new

directory new List all new messages

12.25 directory own

directory own List your own messages

12.26 directory subject <string>

directory subject <string> List all messages with <string> in subject

12.27 directory to <call>

directory to <call> List all messages to <call>

12.28 dx [by <call>] <freq> <call> <remarks>

dx [by <call>] <freq> <call> <remarks> Send a DX spot

This is how you send a DX Spot to other users. You can, in fact, now enter the <freq> and the <call> either way round.

   DX FR0G 144.600
   DX 144.600 FR0G
   DX 144600 FR0G 

will all give the same result. You can add some remarks to the end of the command and they will be added to the spot.

   DX FR0G 144600 this is a test

You can credit someone else by saying:-

   DX by G1TLH FR0G 144.600 he isn't on the cluster

The <freq> is compared against the available bands set up in the cluster. See SHOW/BANDS for more information.

12.29 echo <line>

echo <line> Echo the line to the output

This command is useful in scripts and so forth for printing the line that you give to the command to the output. You can use this in user_default scripts and the SAVE command for titling and so forth

The script will interpret certain standard "escape" sequences as follows:-

  \t - becomes a TAB character (0x09 in ascii)
  \a - becomes a BEEP character (0x07 in ascii)
  \n - prints a new line

So the following example:-

  echo GB7DJK is a dxcluster

produces:-

  GB7DJK is a dxcluster

on the output. You don't need a \n on the end of the line you want to send.

A more complex example:-

  echo GB7DJK\n\tg1tlh\tDirk\n\tg3xvf\tRichard

produces:-

  GB7DJK
          g1tlh   Dirk
          g3xvf   Richard

on the output.

12.30 filtering...

filtering... Filtering things in DXSpider

There are a number of things you can filter in the DXSpider system. They all use the same general mechanism.

In general terms you can create a 'reject' or an 'accept' filter which can have up to 10 lines in it. You do this using, for example:-

  accept/spots .....
  reject/spots .....

where ..... are the specific commands for that type of filter. There are filters for spots, wwv, announce, wcy and (for sysops) connects. See each different accept or reject command reference for more details.

There is also a command to clear out one or more lines in a filter and one to show you what you have set. They are:-

  clear/spots 1
  clear/spots all

and

  show/filter

There is clear/xxxx command for each type of filter.

For now we are going to use spots for the examples, but you can apply the principles to all types of filter.

There are two main types of filter 'accept' or 'reject'; which you use depends entirely on how you look at the world and what is least writing to achieve what you want. Each filter has 10 lines (of any length) which are tried in order. If a line matches then the action you have specified is taken (ie reject means ignore it and accept means gimme it).

The important thing to remember is that if you specify a 'reject' filter (all the lines in it say 'reject/spots' (for instance)) then if a spot comes in that doesn't match any of the lines then you will get it BUT if you specify an 'accept' filter then any spots that don't match are dumped. For example if I have a one line accept filter:-

  accept/spots on vhf and (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

then automatically you will ONLY get VHF spots from or to CQ zones 14 15 and 16. If you set a reject filter like:

  reject/spots on hf/cw

Then you will get everything EXCEPT HF CW spots, If you am interested in IOTA and will work it even on CW then you could say:-

  reject/spots on hf/cw and not info iota

But in that case you might only be interested in iota and say:-

  accept/spots not on hf/cw or info iota

which is exactly the same. You should choose one or the other until you are confortable with the way it works. Yes, you can mix them (actually you can have an accept AND a reject on the same line) but don't try this at home until you can analyse the results that you get without ringing up the sysop for help.

Another useful addition now is filtering by US state

  accept/spots by_state VA,NH,RI,ME

You can arrange your filter lines into logical units, either for your own understanding or simply convenience. I have one set frequently:-

  reject/spots 1 on hf/cw
  reject/spots 2 on 50000/1400000 not (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)  

What this does is to ignore all HF CW spots (being a class B I can't read any CW and couldn't possibly be interested in HF :-) and also rejects any spots on VHF which don't either originate or spot someone in Europe.

This is an exmaple where you would use the line number (1 and 2 in this case), if you leave the digit out, the system assumes '1'. Digits '0'-'9' are available.

You can leave the word 'and' out if you want, it is implied. You can use any number of brackets to make the 'expression' as you want it. There are things called precedence rules working here which mean that you will NEED brackets in a situation like line 2 because, without it, will assume:-

  (on 50000/1400000 and by_zone 14,15,16) or call_zone 14,15,16 

annoying, but that is the way it is. If you use OR - use brackets. Whilst we are here CASE is not important. 'And BY_Zone' is just 'and by_zone'.

If you want to alter your filter you can just redefine one or more lines of it or clear out one line. For example:-

  reject/spots 1 on hf/ssb

or

  clear/spots 1

To remove the filter in its entirty:-

  clear/spots all

There are similar CLEAR commands for the other filters:-

  clear/announce
  clear/wcy
  clear/wwv

ADVANCED USERS:-

Once you are happy with the results you get, you may like to experiment.

my example that filters hf/cw spots and accepts vhf/uhf spots from EU can be written with a mixed filter, eg:

  rej/spot on hf/cw
  acc/spot on 0/30000
  acc/spot 2 on 50000/1400000 and (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

each filter slot actually has a 'reject' slot and an 'accept' slot. The reject slot is executed BEFORE the accept slot.

It was mentioned earlier that after a reject test that doesn't match, the default for following tests is 'accept', the reverse is true for 'accept'. In the example what happens is that the reject is executed first, any non hf/cw spot is passed to the accept line, which lets thru everything else on HF.

The next filter line lets through just VHF/UHF spots from EU.

12.31 help

help The HELP Command

HELP is available for a number of commands. The syntax is:-

  HELP <cmd>

Where <cmd> is the name of the command you want help on.

All commands can be abbreviated, so SHOW/DX can be abbreviated to SH/DX, ANNOUNCE can be shortened to AN and so on.

Look at the APROPOS <string> command which will search the help database for the <string> you specify and give you a list of likely commands to look at with HELP.

12.32 join <group>

join <group> Join a chat or conference group

JOIN allows you to join a network wide conference group. To join a group (called FOC in this case) type:-

  JOIN FOC

See also CHAT, LEAVE, SHOW/CHAT

12.33 kill <from msgno>-<to msgno>

kill <from msgno>-<to msgno> Delete a range of messages

12.34 kill <msgno> [<msgno..]

kill <msgno> [<msgno..] Delete a message from the local system

12.35 kill <msgno> [<msgno> ...]

kill <msgno> [<msgno> ...] Remove or erase a message from the system

You can get rid of any message to or originating from your callsign using this command. You can remove more than one message at a time.

12.36 kill from <regex>

kill from <regex> Delete messages FROM a callsign or pattern

12.37 kill to <regex>

kill to <regex> Delete messages TO a callsign or pattern

12.38 leave <group>

leave <group> Leave a chat or conference group

LEAVE allows you to leave a network wide conference group. To leave a group (called FOC in this case) type:-

  LEAVE FOC

See also CHAT, JOIN, SHOW/CHAT

12.39 links

links Show which nodes is physically connected

This is a quick listing that shows which links are connected and some information about them. See WHO for a list of all connections.

12.40 read

read Read the next unread personal message addressed to you

12.41 read <msgno>

read <msgno> Read the specified message

You can read any messages that are sent as 'non-personal' and also any message either sent by or sent to your callsign.

12.42 reject

reject Set a filter to reject something

Create a filter to reject something

There are 2 types of filter, accept and reject. See HELP FILTERING for more info.

12.43 reject/announce [0-9] <pattern>

reject/announce [0-9] <pattern> Set a 'reject' filter line for announce

Create an 'reject this announce' line for a filter.

A reject filter line means that if the announce matches this filter it is passed onto the user. See HELP FILTERING for more info. Please read this to understand how filters work - it will save a lot of grief later on.

You can use any of the following things in this line:-

  info <string>            eg: iota or qsl
  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  origin_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  channel <prefixes>
  wx 1                     filter WX announces
  dest <prefixes>          eg: 6MUK,WDX      (distros)

some examples:-

  rej/ann by_zone 14,15,16 and not by G,M,2

You can use the tag 'all' to reject everything eg:

  rej/ann all

but this probably for advanced users...

12.44 reject/spots [0-9] <pattern>

reject/spots [0-9] <pattern> Set a 'reject' filter line for spots

Create a 'reject this spot' line for a filter.

A reject filter line means that if the spot matches this filter it is dumped (not passed on). See HELP FILTERING for more info. Please read this to understand how filters work - it will save a lot of grief later on.

You can use any of the following things in this line:-

  freq <range>           eg: 0/30000 or hf or hf/cw or 6m,4m,2m
  on <range>             same as 'freq'
  call <prefixes>        eg: G,PA,HB9
  info <string>          eg: iota or qsl
  by <prefixes>            
  call_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  call_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  call_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  call_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_state <states>                eg: VA,NH,RI,ME
  origin <prefixes>
  channel <prefixes>

'call' means the callsign that has spotted 'by' whoever.

For frequencies, you can use any of the band names defined in SHOW/BANDS and you can use a subband name like: cw, rtty, data, ssb - thus: hf/ssb. You can also just have a simple range like: 0/30000 - this is more efficient than saying simply: on HF (but don't get too hung up about that)

some examples:-

  rej/spot 1 on hf
  rej/spot 2 on vhf and not (by_zone 14,15,16 or call_zone 14,15,16)

You can use the tag 'all' to reject everything eg:

  rej/spot 3 all

but this probably for advanced users...

12.45 reject/wcy [0-9] <pattern>

reject/wcy [0-9] <pattern> set a 'reject' WCY filter

It is unlikely that you will want to do this, but if you do then you can filter on the following fields:-

  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  channel <prefixes>

There are no examples because WCY Broadcasts only come from one place and you either want them or not (see UNSET/WCY if you don't want them).

This command is really provided for future use.

See HELP FILTER for information.

12.46 reject/wwv [0-9] <pattern>

reject/wwv [0-9] <pattern> set a 'reject' WWV filter

It is unlikely that you will want to do this, but if you do then you can filter on the following fields:-

  by <prefixes>            eg: G,M,2         
  origin <prefixes>
  origin_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>    eg: 61,62 (from eg: sh/pre G)
  origin_itu <prefixes or numbers>     or: G,GM,GW
  origin_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  by_dxcc <prefixes or numbers>
  by_itu <prefixes or numbers>
  by_zone <prefixes or numbers>
  channel <prefixes>

for example

  reject/wwv by_zone 14,15,16

is probably the only useful thing to do (which will only show WWV broadcasts by stations in the US).

See HELP FILTER for information.

12.47 reply

reply Reply (privately) to the last message that you have read

12.48 reply <msgno>

reply <msgno> Reply (privately) to the specified message

12.49 reply b <msgno>

reply b <msgno> Reply as a Bulletin to the specified message

12.50 reply noprivate <msgno>

reply noprivate <msgno> Reply as a Bulletin to the specified message

12.51 reply rr <msgno>

reply rr <msgno> Reply to the specified message with read receipt

You can reply to a message and the subject will automatically have "Re:" inserted in front of it, if it isn't already present.

You can also use all the extra qualifiers such as RR, PRIVATE, NOPRIVATE, B that you can use with the SEND command (see SEND for further details)

12.52 send <call> [<call> ...]

send <call> [<call> ...] Send a message to one or more callsigns

12.53 send copy <msgno> <call>

send copy <msgno> <call> Send a copy of a message to someone

12.54 send noprivate <call>

send noprivate <call> Send a message to all stations

All the SEND commands will create a message which will be sent either to an individual callsign or to one of the 'bulletin' addresses.

SEND <call> on its own acts as though you had typed SEND PRIVATE, that is it will mark the message as personal and send it to the cluster node that that callsign is connected to. If the <call> you have specified is in fact a known bulletin category on your node (eg: ALL) then the message should automatically become a bulletin.

You can have more than one callsign in all of the SEND commands.

You can have multiple qualifiers so that you can have for example:-

  SEND RR COPY 123 PRIVATE G1TLH G0RDI

which should send a copy of message 123 to G1TLH and G0RDI and you will receive a read receipt when they have read the message.

SB is an alias for SEND NOPRIVATE (or send a bulletin in BBS speak) SP is an alias for SEND PRIVATE

The system will ask you for a subject. Conventionally this should be no longer than 29 characters for compatibility. Most modern cluster software should accept more.

You will now be prompted to start entering your text.

You finish the message by entering '/EX' on a new line. For instance:

  ...
  bye then Jim
  73 Dirk
  /ex

If you have started a message and you don't want to keep it then you can abandon the message with '/ABORT' on a new line, like:-

  line 1
  line 2
  oh I just can't be bothered with this
  /abort

If you abort the message it will NOT be sent.

When you are entering the text of your message, most normal output (such as DX announcements and so on are suppressed and stored for latter display (upto 20 such lines are stored, as new ones come along, so the oldest lines are dropped).

Also, you can enter normal commands commands (and get the output immediately) whilst in the middle of a message. You do this by typing the command preceeded by a '/' character on a new line, so:-

  /dx g1tlh 144010 strong signal

Will issue a dx annoucement to the rest of the cluster.

Also, you can add the output of a command to your message by preceeding the command with '//', thus :-

  //sh/vhftable

This will show YOU the output from SH/VHFTABLE and also store it in the message.

You can carry on with the message until you are ready to send it.

12.84 show/configuration [<node>]

show/configuration [<node>] Show all the nodes and users visible

This command allows you to see all the users that can be seen and the nodes to which they are connected.

This command is normally abbreviated to: sh/c

Normally, the list returned will be just for the nodes from your country (because the list otherwise will be very long).

  SH/C ALL 

will produce a complete list of all nodes.

BE WARNED: the list that is returned can be VERY long

It is possible to supply a node or part of a prefix and you will get a list of the users for that node or list of nodes starting with that prefix.

  SH/C GB7DJK
  SH/C SK

12.85 show/configuration/node

show/configuration/node Show all the nodes connected locally

  SH/CONTEST sep2003
  SH/CONTEST 03 march

12.87 show/date [<prefix>|<callsign>]

show/date [<prefix>|<callsign>] Show the local time

This is very nearly the same as SHOW/TIME, the only difference the format of the date string if no arguments are given.

If no prefixes or callsigns are given then this command returns the local time and UTC as the computer has it right now. If you give some prefixes then it will show UTC and UTC + the local offset (not including DST) at the prefixes or callsigns that you specify.

12.88 show/db0sdx <callsign>

show/db0sdx <callsign> Show QSL infomation from DB0SDX database

This command queries the DB0SDX QSL server on the internet and returns any information available for that callsign. This service is provided for users of this software by http://www.qslinfo.de.

See also SHOW/QRZ, SHOW/WM7D.

12.89 show/dx

show/dx Interrogate the spot database

If you just type SHOW/DX you will get the last so many spots (sysop configurable, but usually 10).

In addition you can add any number of these commands in very nearly any order to the basic SHOW/DX command, they are:-

 on <band>       - eg 160m 20m 2m 23cm 6mm
 on <region>     - eg hf vhf uhf shf      (see SHOW/BANDS)
 on <from>/<to>  - eg 1000/4000 14000-30000  (in Khz)
    <from>-<to>
 <number>        - the number of spots you want
 <from>-<to>     - <from> spot no <to> spot no in the selected list
 <from>/<to>
 <prefix>        - for a spotted callsign beginning with <prefix>
 *<suffix>       - for a spotted callsign ending in <suffix>
 *<string>*      - for a spotted callsign containing <string>
 day <number>    - starting <number> days ago
 day <from>-<to> - <from> days <to> days ago
     <from>/<to>   
 info <text>     - any spots containing <text> in the info or remarks
 by <call>       - any spots spotted by <call> (spotter <call> is the 
                   same).
 qsl             - this automatically looks for any qsl info on the call
                   held in the spot database.
 iota [<iota>]   - If the iota island number is missing it will look for
                  the string iota and anything which looks like an iota
                  island number. If you specify then it will look for  
                  that island.
 qra [<locator>] - this will look for the specific locator if you specify
                   one or else anything that looks like a locator.
 dxcc            - treat the prefix as a 'country' and look for spots
                   from that country regardless of actual prefix.
                   eg dxcc oq2 
                   You can also use this with the 'by' keyword so 
                   eg by W dxcc  
 e.g. 
   SH/DX 9m0
   SH/DX on 20m info iota
   SH/DX 9a on vhf day 30
   SH/DX rf1p qsl
   SH/DX iota 
   SH/DX iota eu-064
   SH/DX qra jn86
   SH/DX dxcc oq2
   SH/DX dxcc oq2 by w dxcc

12.90 show/dxcc <prefix>

show/dxcc <prefix> Interrogate the spot database by country

This command takes the <prefix> (which can be a full or partial callsign if desired), looks up which internal country number it is and then displays all the spots as per SH/DX for that country.

This is now an alias for 'SHOW/DX DXCC'

The options for SHOW/DX also apply to this command. e.g.

   SH/DXCC G
   SH/DXCC W on 20m iota

This can be done with the SHOW/DX command like this:-

   SH/DX dxcc g
   SH/DX dxcc w on 20m iota

12.91 show/dxqsl <callsign>

show/dxqsl <callsign> Show any QSL info gathered from spots

The node collects information from the comment fields in spots (things like 'VIA EA7WA' or 'QSL-G1TLH') and stores these in a database.

This command allows you to interrogate that database and if the callsign is found will display the manager(s) that people have spotted. This information is NOT reliable, but it is normally reasonably accurate if it is spotted enough times.

For example:-

  sh/dxqsl 4k9w

You can check the raw input spots yourself with:-

  sh/dx 4k9w qsl

This gives you more background information.

12.92 show/dxstats [days] [date]

show/dxstats [days] [date] Show the DX Statistics

Show the total DX spots for the last <days> no of days (default is 31), starting from a <date> (default: today).

12.93 show/files [<filearea> [<string>]]

show/files [<filearea> [<string>]] List the contents of a filearea

SHOW/FILES on its own will show you a list of the various fileareas available on the system. To see the contents of a particular file area type:-

   SH/FILES <filearea>

where <filearea> is the name of the filearea you want to see the contents of.

You can also use shell globbing characters like '*' and '?' in a string to see a selection of files in a filearea eg:-

   SH/FILES bulletins arld*

See also TYPE - to see the contents of a file.

12.94 show/filter

show/filter Show the contents of all the filters you have set

Show the contents of all the filters that are set. This command displays all the filters set - for all the various categories.

12.95 show/hfstats [days] [date]

show/hfstats [days] [date] Show the HF DX Statistics

Show the HF DX spots breakdown by band for the last <days> no of days (default is 31), starting from a <date> (default: today).

12.96 show/hftable [days] [date] [prefix ...]

show/hftable [days] [date] [prefix ...] Show the HF DX Spotter Table

Show the HF DX Spotter table for the list of prefixes for the last <days> no of days (default is 31), starting from a <date> (default: today).

If there are no prefixes then it will show the table for your country.

Remember that some countries have more than one "DXCC country" in them (eg G :-), to show them (assuming you are not in G already which is specially treated in the code) you must list all the relevant prefixes

  sh/hftable g gm gd gi gj gw gu 

Note that the prefixes are converted into country codes so you don't have to list all possible prefixes for each country.

If you want more or less days than the default simply include the number you require:-

  sh/hftable 20 pa

If you want to start at a different day, simply add the date in some recognizable form:-

  sh/hftable 2 25nov02
  sh/hftable 2 25-nov-02 
  sh/hftable 2 021125 
  sh/hftable 2 25/11/02

This will show the stats for your DXCC for that CQWW contest weekend.

You can specify either prefixes or full callsigns (so you can see how you did against all your mates). You can also say 'all' which will then print the worldwide statistics.

  sh/hftable all 

12.97 show/moon [ndays] [<prefix>|<callsign>]

show/moon [ndays] [<prefix>|<callsign>] Show Moon rise and set times

Show the Moon rise and set times for a (list of) prefixes or callsigns, together with the azimuth and elevation of the sun currently at those locations.

If you don't specify any prefixes or callsigns, it will show the times for your QTH (assuming you have set it with either SET/LOCATION or SET/QRA), together with the current azimuth and elevation.

In addition, it will show the illuminated fraction of the moons disk.

If all else fails it will show the Moonrise and set times for the node that you are connected to.

For example:-

  SH/MOON
  SH/MOON G1TLH W5UN

You can also use this command to see into the past or the future, so if you want to see yesterday's times then do:-

  SH/MOON -1 

or in three days time:-

  SH/MOON +3 W9

Upto 366 days can be checked both in the past and in the future.

Please note that the rise and set times are given as the UT times of rise and set on the requested UT day.

12.98 show/muf <prefix> [<hours>][long]

show/muf <prefix> [<hours>][long] Show the likely propagation to a prefix

This command allow you to estimate the likelihood of you contacting a station with the prefix you have specified. The output assumes a modest power of 20dBW and receiver sensitivity of -123dBm (about 0.15muV/10dB SINAD)

The result predicts the most likely operating frequencies and signal levels for high frequency (shortwave) radio propagation paths on specified days of the year and hours of the day. It is most useful for paths between 250 km and 6000 km, but can be used with reduced accuracy for paths shorter or longer than this.

The command uses a routine MINIMUF 3.5 developed by the U.S. Navy and used to predict the MUF given the predicted flux, day of the year, hour of the day and geographic coordinates of the transmitter and receiver. This routine is reasonably accurate for the purposes here, with a claimed RMS error of 3.8 MHz, but much smaller and less complex than the programs used by major shortwave broadcasting organizations, such as the Voice of America.

The command will display some header information detailing its assumptions, together with the locations, latitude and longitudes and bearings. It will then show UTC (UT), local time at the other end (LT), calculate the MUFs, Sun zenith angle at the midpoint of the path (Zen) and the likely signal strengths. Then for each frequency for which the system thinks there is a likelihood of a circuit it prints a value.

The value is currently a likely S meter reading based on the conventional 6dB / S point scale. If the value has a '+' appended it means that it is 1/2 an S point stronger. If the value is preceeded by an 'm' it means that there is likely to be much fading and by an 's' that the signal is likely to be noisy.

By default SHOW/MUF will show the next two hours worth of data. You can specify anything up to 24 hours worth of data by appending the no of hours required after the prefix. For example:-

  SH/MUF W

produces:

  RxSens: -123 dBM SFI: 159   R: 193   Month: 10   Day: 21
  Power :   20 dBW    Distance:  6283 km    Delay: 22.4 ms
  Location                       Lat / Long           Azim
  East Dereham, Norfolk          52 41 N 0 57 E         47
  United-States-W                43 0 N 87 54 W        299
  UT LT  MUF Zen  1.8  3.5  7.0 10.1 14.0 18.1 21.0 24.9 28.0 50.0
  18 23 11.5 -35  mS0+ mS2   S3
  19  0 11.2 -41  mS0+ mS2   S3

indicating that you will have weak, fading circuits on top band and 80m but usable signals on 40m (about S3).

inputing:-

  SH/MUF W 24

will get you the above display, but with the next 24 hours worth of propagation data.

  SH/MUF W L 24
  SH/MUF W 24 Long

Gives you an estimate of the long path propagation characterics. It should be noted that the figures will probably not be very useful, nor terrible accurate, but it is included for completeness.

12.99 show/newconfiguration [<node>]

show/newconfiguration [<node>] Show all the nodes and users visible

This command allows you to see all the users that can be seen and the nodes to which they are connected.

This command produces essentially the same information as SHOW/CONFIGURATION except that it shows all the duplication of any routes that might be present It also uses a different format which may not take up quite as much space if you don't have any loops.

BE WARNED: the list that is returned can be VERY long

12.100 show/newconfiguration/node

show/newconfiguration/node Show all the nodes connected locally

Show all the nodes connected to this node in the new format.

12.101 show/prefix <callsign>

show/prefix <callsign> Interrogate the prefix database

This command takes the <callsign> (which can be a full or partial callsign or a prefix), looks up which internal country number it is and then displays all the relevant prefixes for that country together with the internal country no, the CQ and ITU regions.

See also SHOW/DXCC

12.102 show/qra <lat> <long>

show/qra <lat> <long> Convert lat/long to a QRA Grid locator

This is a multipurpose command that allows you either to calculate the distance and bearing between two locators or (if only one locator is given on the command line) the distance and beraing from your station to the locator. For example:-

 SH/QRA IO92QL 
 SH/QRA JN06 IN73

The first example will show the distance and bearing to the locator from yourself, the second example will calculate the distance and bearing from the first locator to the second. You can use 4 or 6 character locators.

It is also possible to convert a latitude and longitude to a locator by using this command with a latitude and longitude as an argument, for example:-

 SH/QRA 52 41 N 0 58 E

12.103 show/qra <locator> [<locator>]

show/qra <locator> [<locator>] Show distance between QRA Grid locators

12.104 show/qrz <callsign>

show/qrz <callsign> Show any callbook details on a callsign

This command queries the QRZ callbook server on the internet and returns any information available for that callsign. This service is provided for users of this software by http://www.qrz.com

See also SHOW/WM7D for an alternative.

12.105 show/route <callsign> ...

show/route <callsign> ... Show the route to the callsign

This command allows you to see to which node the callsigns specified are connected. It is a sort of inverse sh/config.

 sh/route n2tly

12.106 show/satellite <name> [<hours> <interval>]

show/satellite <name> [<hours> <interval>] Show tracking data

Show the tracking data from your location to the satellite of your choice from now on for the next few hours.

If you use this command without a satellite name it will display a list of all the satellites known currently to the system.

If you give a name then you can obtain tracking data of all the passes that start and finish 5 degrees below the horizon. As default it will give information for the next three hours for every five minute period.

You can alter the number of hours and the step size, within certain limits.

Each pass in a period is separated with a row of '-----' characters

So for example:-

 SH/SAT AO-10 
 SH/SAT FENGYUN1 12 2

12.107 show/station [<callsign> ..]

show/station [<callsign> ..] Show information about a callsign

Show the information known about a callsign and whether (and where) that callsign is connected to the cluster.

If no callsign is given then show the information for yourself.

12.108 show/sun [ndays] [<prefix>|<callsign>]

show/sun [ndays] [<prefix>|<callsign>] Show sun rise and set times

Show the sun rise and set times for a (list of) prefixes or callsigns, together with the azimuth and elevation of the sun currently at those locations.

If you don't specify any prefixes or callsigns, it will show the times for your QTH (assuming you have set it with either SET/LOCATION or SET/QRA), together with the current azimuth and elevation.

If all else fails it will show the sunrise and set times for the node that you are connected to.

For example:-

  SH/SUN
  SH/SUN G1TLH K9CW ZS

You can also use this command to see into the past or the future, so if you want to see yesterday's times then do:-

  SH/SUN -1 

or in three days time:-

  SH/SUN +3 W9

Upto 366 days can be checked both in the past and in the future.

Please note that the rise and set times are given as the UT times of rise and set on the requested UT day.

12.109 show/time [<prefix>|<callsign>]

show/time [<prefix>|<callsign>] Show the local time

If no prefixes or callsigns are given then this command returns the local time and UTC as the computer has it right now. If you give some prefixes then it will show UTC and UTC + the local offset (not including DST) at the prefixes or callsigns that you specify.

12.110 show/usdb [call ..]

show/usdb [call ..] Show information held on the FCC Call database

show/vhftable [days] [date] [prefix ...] Show the VHF DX Spotter Table

Show the VHF DX Spotter table for the list of prefixes for the last <days> no of days (default is 31), starting from a date (default: today).

If there are no prefixes then it will show the table for your country.

Remember that some countries have more than one "DXCC country" in them (eg G :-), to show them (assuming you are not in G already which is specially treated in the code) you must list all the relevant prefixes

  sh/vhftable g gm gd gi gj gw gu 

Note that the prefixes are converted into country codes so you don't have to list all possible prefixes for each country.

If you want more or less days than the default simply include the number you require:-

  sh/vhftable 20 pa

If you want to start at a different day, simply add the date in some recognizable form:-

  sh/vhftable 2 25nov02
  sh/vhftable 2 25-nov-02 
  sh/vhftable 2 021125 
  sh/vhftable 2 25/11/02

This will show the stats for your DXCC for that CQWW contest weekend.

You can specify either prefixes or full callsigns (so you can see how you did against all your mates). You can also say 'all' which will then print the worldwide statistics.

  sh/vhftable all

show/wwv <n> Show last <n> WWV broadcasts

Display the most recent WWV information that has been received by the system

12.118 sysop

sysop Regain your privileges if you login remotely

The system automatically reduces your privilege level to that of a normal user if you login in remotely. This command allows you to regain your normal privilege level. It uses the normal system: five numbers are returned that are indexes into the character array that is your assigned password (see SET/PASSWORD). The indexes start from zero.

You are expected to return a string which contains the characters required in the correct order. You may intersperse those characters with others to obscure your reply for any watchers. For example (and these values are for explanation :-):

  password = 012345678901234567890123456789
  > sysop
  22 10 15 17 3

you type:-

 aa2bbbb0ccc5ddd7xxx3n
 or 2 0 5 7 3
 or 20573

They will all match. If there is no password you will still be offered numbers but nothing will happen when you input a string. Any match is case sensitive.

12.119 talk <call> > <node> [<text>]

talk <call> > <node> [<text>] Send a text message to another station via a node

Send a short message to any other station that is visible on the cluster system. You can send it to anyone you can see with a SHOW/CONFIGURATION command, they don't have to be connected locally.

The second form of TALK is used when other cluster nodes are connected with restricted information. This usually means that they don't send the user information usually associated with logging on and off the cluster.

If you know that G3JNB is likely to be present on GB7TLH, but you can only see GB7TLH in the SH/C list but with no users, then you would use the second form of the talk message.

If you want to have a ragchew with someone you can leave the text message out and the system will go into 'Talk' mode. What this means is that a short message is sent to the recipient telling them that you are in a 'Talking' frame of mind and then you just type - everything you send will go to the station that you asked for.

All the usual announcements, spots and so on will still come out on your terminal.

If you want to do something (such as send a spot) you preceed the normal command with a '/' character, eg:-

   /DX 14001 G1TLH What's a B class licensee doing on 20m CW?
   /HELP talk

To leave talk mode type:

   /EX

If you are in 'Talk' mode, there is an extention to the '/' command which allows you to send the output to all the people you are talking to. You do with the '//' command. For example:-

  //sh/hftable

will send the hftable as you have it to all the people you are currently talking to.

12.120 talk <call> [<text>]

12.122 unset/announce

unset/announce Stop announce messages coming out on your terminal

12.123 unset/anntalk

unset/anntalk Stop talk like announce messages on your terminal

The announce system on legacy cluster nodes is used as a talk substitute because the network is so poorly connected. If you:

  unset/anntalk

you will suppress several of these announces, you may miss the odd useful one as well, but you would probably miss them anyway in the welter of useless ones.

  set/anntalk 

allows you to see them again. This is the default.

12.125 unset/dx

12.126 unset/dxcq

unset/dxcq Stop CQ Zones on the end of DX announcements

Display both the Spotter's and the Spotted's CQ Zone on the end of a DX announcement (there is just enough room). Some user programs cannot cope with this. The Spotter's CQ is on the RHS of the time, the Spotted's CQ is on the LHS.

Conflicts with: SET/DXGRID, SET/DXITU, SHOW/USSTATE

Do a STAT/USER to see which flags you have set if you are confused.

unset/dxgrid Stop QRA Grid Squares on the end of DX announcements

A standard feature which is enabled in version 1.43 and above is that if the spotter's grid square is known it is output on the end of a DX announcement (there is just enough room). Some user programs cannot cope with this. You can use this command to reset (or set) this feature.

Conflicts with: SET/DXCQ, SET/DXITU

Do a STAT/USER to see which flags you have set if you are confused.

12.128 unset/dxitu

unset/dxitu Stop ITU Zones on the end of DX announcements

Display both the Spotter's and the Spotted's ITU Zone on the end of a DX announcement (there is just enough room). Some user programs cannot cope with this. The Spotter's ITU is on the RHS of the time, the Spotted's ITU is on the LHS.

Conflicts with: SET/DXGRID, SET/DXCQ, SHOW/USSTATE

Do a STAT/USER to see which flags you have set if you are confused.

12.129 unset/echo

unset/echo Stop the cluster echoing your input

If you are connected via a telnet session, different implimentations of telnet handle echo differently depending on whether you are connected via port 23 or some other port. You can use this command to change the setting appropriately.

The setting is stored in your user profile.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE THIS COMMAND IF YOU ARE CONNECTED VIA AX25.

12.130 unset/email

unset/email Stop personal msgs being forwarded by email

If any personal messages come in for your callsign then you can use these commands to control whether they are forwarded onto your email address. To enable the forwarding do something like:-

  SET/EMAIL mike.tubby@somewhere.com

You can have more than one email address (each one separated by a space). Emails are forwarded to all the email addresses you specify.

You can disable forwarding by:-

  UNSET/EMAIL

unset/here Tell the system you are absent from your terminal

12.132 unset/logininfo

unset/logininfo Inform when a station logs out locally

12.133 unset/privilege

unset/privilege Remove any privilege for this session

You can use this command to 'protect' this session from unauthorised use. If you want to get your normal privilege back you will need to either logout and login again (if you are on a console) or use the SYSOP command.

12.134 unset/prompt

unset/prompt Set your prompt back to default

This command will set your user prompt to exactly the string that you say. The point of this command to enable a user to interface to programs that are looking for a specific prompt (or else you just want a different fixed prompt).

  SET/PROMPT clx >

UNSET/PROMPT will undo the SET/PROMPT command and set you prompt back to normal.

12.135 unset/talk

unset/talk Stop TALK messages coming out on your terminal

12.136 unset/usstate

unset/usstate Stop US State info on the end of DX announcements

If the spotter's or spotted's US State is known it is output on the end of a DX announcement (there is just enough room).

A spotter's state will appear on the RHS of the time (like SET/DXGRID) and the spotted's State will appear on the LHS of the time field. Any information found will override any locator information from SET/DXGRID.

Some user programs cannot cope with this. You can use this command to reset (or set) this feature.

Conflicts with: SET/DXCQ, SET/DXITU

Do a STAT/USER to see which flags you have set if you are confused.
