Waterfall Bandmap Service

The Waterfall Bandmap is a separate application developed by Steve N2IC with which Commander can interoperate via UDP messages. It provides a live waterfall display with callsign and frequency spotting information. The Waterfall Bandmap tracks the frequency of your transceiver, and can obtain the callsigns of active DX stations from Commander (which receives them from SpotCollector). Commander provides all the information that the Waterfall Bandmap needs to work with your SDR receiver or sound card I/Q output to synchronize with Commander's primary transceiver. The Waterfall Bandmap works with any radio compatible with LP-PAN (such as the K3), with the FlexRadio Signature series, and with most SDR receivers, such as the Perseus, QS1R, or SDRplay.
