Enabling SpotCollector to Compute and Display an Azimuth for Each Active DX Station

  1. specify the latitude and longitude of your QTH in the Operator location panel on the Config window's General tab

  2. enable SpotCollector to determine the location of each active DX station by

    • checking the Lookup missing location info box on the Configuration window's General tab so that SpotCollector will perform a lookup on the spotting station's callsign in the DXCC or USAP database

    • checking the Capture location info from notes box on the Configuration window's General tab so that SpotCollector will attempt to extract the spotting station's grid square from the spot notes (since there is no standard way that users specify grid squares in spot notes, this function can be inaccurate)

To add the Azimuth column to the Spot Database Display, see Formatting the Spot Database Display
