Scan DX

DXView's ability to plot both active DX stations and the stations that spot them can identify current band openings. To exploit this capability, one should limit the plot to stations on one band at a time. That can be done using the Band Filter panel on the Configuration window's Plot Settings tab, but sequencing through each of the HF bands requires lots of mouse clicks. DXView's Scan DX function lets you specify a set of bands and the amount of time that each band's DX and spotting stations should be displayed; initiating the function the causes DXView to sequentially display the active DX and spotting stations on each band, lingering on each band for the specified time interval, as shown in this video.


On the Plot Settings tab of DXView's Configuration window,

  1. check boxes in the Scan DX Bands panel for each band you want included in the scan sequence

  2. set the dwell box to the number of seconds DXView should linger on each band in the scan sequence


To initiate the scan sequence, click the Scan DX button near the bottom of DXView's Info window
