Re: AO40 DX packetcluster spots



..another important point in some DX-clusters in order to accept the AO-40's DX spots
is the "Filter setting".
 
  The "Filter" allows or not to entry some frequencies...  in the most cases the "Filter"
condition will appear on your screen by typing:  "SHOW/FILTER" <enter>.
 
 You can manipulate (with HELP file) which frequency you want to accept or not.
 
BTW my local RF 1200 Bps DX Cluster network accepts the spots for the AO-40 (running DXSpider 1v51).
 
My typeset was: DX  2401.300  AO40  
 
After few seconds viewed on my screen with slightly different typeset:  2401300.00
 
Another point: don't use syntax "AO-40", but "AO40" !   The DX cluster doesn't accept
"dash"  between "AO" and "40"  if you put it on as callsign!
