.NET Core console app to provide coloured and filtered displays of FT8 decoded messages, by monitoring udp://localhost:2237
Compares callsigns to your Cloudlog database, regardless of whether the decode is a CQ or not.
You can optionally enable highlighting of new grid squares as well as the default DXCCs
- .NET Core 2.1 SDK and/or runtime, not sure (download page)
- Any OS that .NET Core 2.1 runs on. Built on OS X, should work fine on Windows and Linux too.
- Recent Cloudlog install + API key for it (from the Admin menu)
git clone https://github.com/M0LTE/ft8spotter.git cd ft8spotter-master/ft8spotter dotnet run
Then follow the prompt in order to set your Cloudlog instance URL
By default ft8spotter selects the 20m band, and only shows needed DXCC decodes. To run in this manner:
cd ft8spotter-master/ft8spotter dotnet run
You can pass other options to select a different band with --band, for example --6m or --40m You can also choose to display all needed grids with --grids or display every decode with --all For example, selecting 6m and showing all needed grid decodes:
cd ft8spotter-master/ft8spotter dotnet run --6m --grids
