Python DX Spot analysis

Have you ever wondered where the activity on the ham bands is NOW? I have made a small Python program that receives the spots from RBN and puts the data in a table. Below you see the results for all continents.
If you only want to see your own continent, just click on, well, your continent 🙂 or go straight to the correct page in the menu above. The pages for the separate continents also give some more info on the way the calculations are done.

For now this all runs in beta so you can expect some bugs and some times where the system is not running. For the record, this is my very first Python program.

The calculations are done on a PC in my shack (running Windows 7 for now). a Raspberry Pi 3 model B. (update 14/06/2017)

For any comments, bug reports or questions you know how to reach me!

Links / Operating

Since I threw my television set out of the shack I should have more time to finally find that nasty bug in my K2 but now I spend my time surfing the net… Again I found some interesting links I wish to share with you:

  • Although there is nothing to see related to Ham-Radio you should check these great pictures on the site of Aime ON4AIM:[inside view] and [outside view] (you’ll need Java to open them!). Don’t forget to click your mouse and drag it around to see the full panorama. This is the lighthouse of Ostend on which the ON0OS ATV-repeater is located.
  • Another interesting text for all ham-radio operators can be found on the site of Marc ON4WW: Let’s make DXing enjoyable again. Please.
    Are YOU sure your operating practice is correct? Yes?
