What options are available to Save a filtered Copy of the Spot Database Display?

Hi, Guys.  What options are there to save a copy of the (filtered) Spot Database Display, on a daily basis, so that days later the copy is available, and searchable by either callsign, or searchable by DXCC entity, etc.?

The intention is to have available a (searchable) history of stations spotted on a particular band (e.g. 6m), where the DXCC entity has yet to be worked or confirmed.  Currently, copies are made here by using screen shots of the filtered Spot Database display; those saved screen shots are not searchable and must be visually scanned to find needed data.

Did you try the "Report" button (found under the "Spot source status"
panel). That should generate a text report with all database entries
matching the current filter.
