DX Monitor is a standalone Windows application which monitors the DX announcements available on the internet at DX Summit, HB9DRV and connections to one or more local and international DX Cluster Telnet Servers.

New DX spots are displayed in the main window with user selectable bands, fonts, colors, and highlighting of alerts and local spotters. A band map tracks the current stations on the air by frequency. Maps show the openings with buttons to select bands and times.

The predicted signal strength of the spotted station at your QTH can be displayed with each spot. A 24 hour propagation prediction by band takes only one click.

DX Monitor builds a database of DX Spots, Announcements, and WWV information and includes many tools which can be used by DXers to improve their chances of working a new country.
