RCK-DCS - RCK Digital Cluster System
The RCK Digital Cluster System is a DX-Cluster-System specially for digital online spots (RTTY, PSK31, PSK63, ...) feeded by the RCKskimmer
user around the world and RBN.
Digital spots are distributed in real time.
The address is: dl4rck.ham-radio-op.net on Port: 8000
The used software behind this cluster system (named RCKserver) is developed by Walter, DL4RCK as "add-on" for the RCKskimmer user.
Use your daily Cluster Program (PuTTY, dxTelnet, N1MM, RCKLog, Wintest, DX Monitor, BandMap, ....) to connect to the RCK-DCS and get the real time spots.
To be detected by the RCKskimmer software and posted here on the RCK-DCS use the following setup in your CQ-call or confirmation-call in a contest.
The CQ/DE-detection of RCKskimmer is working as follow:
- CQ/DE detection in front of the call: "CQ DL4RCK " (CQ) "CQ DE DL4RCK " (CQ) "CQDX DL4RCK " (CQ) "TEST DL4RCK " (CQ) "CQDX DE DL4RCK " (CQ) "TEST DE DL4RCK " (CQ) ".... DE DL4RCK " (DE)
- CQ detection behind the call: "... DL4RCK QRZ " "... DL4RCK QRZ? " "... TU DL4RCK CQ " "... TU DL4RCK QRZ " "... TU DL4RCK QRZ? " "... TU DL4RCK TEST " "... QSL DL4RCK CQ " "... QSL DL4RCK QRZ " "... QSL DL4RCK QRZ? " "... QSL DL4RCK TEST " "... DE DL4RCK CQ " "... DE DL4RCK QRZ " "... DE DL4RCK QRZ? " "... DE DL4RCK TEST " "... CFM DL4RCK CQ " "... DL4RCK UP "
