CyberDX-CW is a Cyberspace Simulation of Amateur Radio CW DXCC
CyberDX-CW is a software simulation of an amateur radio station monitoring the world. The user attempts to work all of the countries in the world, using Morse code (CW). The countries are the same as those defined by the ARRL DXCC program as of 9 May 2000 (currently 334 countries). Only active countries count for awards.
Note: If you start late, you will loose time for the overall Honor Roll program, so order your copy today.
The software generates a simulated radio environment, where the operator can tune all of the HF bands and actually hear computer generated station activity. The user identifies and answers DX stations. The probability of a user hearing a given station is dependent upon:
- Time of day (estimated propagation)
- Noise Level (band related)
- QRM from other simulated stations
- Band in use and frequency (estimated propagation)
- Number of "real world" amateurs in the particular country
- Your latitude and longitude (estimated propagation to other station)
The probability of a DX station hearing you is dependent upon:
- Number of stations calling other than you (pileups can get worse the longer the station is on a given frequency)
- Timing of your call (as in the real world, you will have to time your call to minimize interference)
- Use of tail-ending, tail-ending is allowed, but only within the accepted practice of waiting until the current station gives his signal report.
- CW speed is dependent on where in the band you are tuned, with higher speed stations in lower portion of each band.
- Updates will be published on our WEB page. The user simply downloads the new install file and runs it, which will place new files in the proper directory where CyberDX-CW resides. The program will automatically incorporate any new file or database the next time the program is started.
