Obtaining DX Information from an IOTA tag

  1. in DXView's Main window, type a valid IOTA tag into the Location panel's IOTA textbox and strike the Enter key

  2. With its IOTA database installed, DXView displays the name of the island's DXCC entity, and an approximate location that is characterized by

    • the local time (based on the approximate location, and not reflecting Daylight Savings Time)
    • a latitude and longitude

    • a Maidenhead grid square

    • the short path distance (SP DX) to your QTH

    • a blue dot on the World Map (click the World button in the Main window's Map panel to make the World Map visible)

    • short and long path headings for directive antennas

  3. if the island fits entirely within an IOTA tag, that IOTA tag is displayed

  4. if the island fits entirely within an CQ Zone, that CQ Zone is displayed

  5. if the island fits entirely within an ITU zone, that ITU Zone tag is displayed
