Re: DX Spotting

Pat Whelton

Hi Mel.  Not sure this will help or not but it might be worth checking out.  I grew tired of all the FT4 and FT8 spots that kept hitting DX spots and was hoping there was a way to block them.  Scott made a change sometime within the last year or so to block all the FT4/FT8 and I’ve been a happy camper ever since.  It’s possible that somehow your settings got changed to block these unwanted spots.


You can check by going to:

  • Settings
  • DX Spotting
  • Configure
  • More Filtering
  • Under More Filtering place a check mark by “Block Digital”.


After making this change it got rid of all the stuff above 14.080 and made the DX spots a whole lot more meaningful for me.  For some reason the FT4/FT8 folks feel they have to spot every contact they make.


You may have a totally different problem but it might be worth looking into.


Good luck.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] DX Spotting


I have been using N3FJP software for at least 9 years and have never had a problem I could not solve.  But since I have upgraded to 6.6 my DX Spots do not post.  Every once and awhile I will have one post, but recently few and far between.  My FT-8 DX contacts do not post, and were posting prior to version 6.6.  I can't even post when I do it directly from DX Spot.  So I was wonsdering if anyone has seen this problem, and are there any fixes.  Attached please find a screen shot of my DX Spotting setup.


Thanks for your help
