CW Club RBN Spotter info

The table on the bandmap page shows recent RBN spots of CW club members in a dynamically updated bandmap (30 seconds update interval).

In the upper part of the page, you can specify the filter options you wish to apply. The lower part of the page shows the bandmap with the matching spots.

Some details:

Do spots of your station not appear in this RBN application?

Don't you see any spots at all?


Connect via telnet

You can receive the spots via telnet by connecting to on port 7000. Currently filtering by club and continent is implemented for the telnet port. Any changes you make to your filters here on the website automatically applies to the telnet port. If you need multiple sets of filters, simply use SSIDs like DJ1YFK-1, DJ1YFK-2 and log in accordingly. If you think that additional filters could be helpful, let me know!

You can switch between the telnet stream filtered by club members and a raw stream (all spots) by entering set/clubs and set/raw respectively.

Ham Radio Deluxe users: If you don't see any spots, please try switching to the VE7CC output format (CC11) by entering set/ve7cc. You can switch back with set/normal
