I know in ESDR2 I can designate Telnet Spotters to put the spots on the Screen in ESDR2. I think this is a great feature. Seeing that the upcoming ARRL DX Contest is this weekend. Is there a way that one can designate a filter for a designated Telnet Spot via ESDR2?
The reason I ask is because seeing the spots would be great, but in my case being a USA station, I don't want to see other USA or Canadian spots. Reason being is because I can't work them.
Filtering is described in the User Manual Addendum. You will see that, as there is no filtering in ESDR2, it is done on the input by executing the required command to the telnet server / DX Cluster. The UMA shows the result of filtering out EU stations so simply amend the command to suit your location.
The filtering is fine I assume is only if you are using SDC.
I will probably use a set filter for a telnet site via N1MM and perhaps also use that same telnet in the Options/Spots in ESDR2.
Of course I will have to use another Login Callsign so I won't get the duplicate error.
Filtering is not dependent on the application used to access the Cluster. So it makes no difference whether it is SDC or ESDR2 or, even better, Swisslog that is making the connection.
If you set up filtering for one callsign at a Cluster, you will need to do the same for a different callsign at the same Cluster. But it is all very easily achievable as it is a set-and-forget command.
Use of N1MM can be without using the ESDR2 telnet connection if you also use SDC and activate the N1MM support features. Then, as with Swisslog, you will not only get filtered Spots but also they will be color coded per their contest status (worked, new, mult).
Just a couple of simple questions.
What should the TCI server be in the TCI Tab within ESDR2? 40001 or 40002
I assume that in the Spots tab I would use for the localhost:##### whichever it would be in the TCI Tab.
Now, in SDC under TCI the TCI Client #1 should be whatever I have used above?
What should the Call Back # be? 40001 or 40002?
