ft8spotter

.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

Prerequisites

  • .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)

Usage

One-off setup

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

Day-to-day

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
