Setting your personal details

Once logged in to the cluster, you should set your details so that anybody who wishes to contact you can find out who and where you are. There are four items to set, your name, qth, location and home node. Setting these details also allows the use of the SHOW/HEADING and SHOW/SUN commands from within the cluster. Unless you set your QTH and location, these commands cannot function. Once you have set your name, DXSpider will greet you with it next time you login. Your QTH setting is where you live and it is a good idea to add your locator to this as the location setting is converted to latitude and longitude once inputted. You can actually set your location in latitude/longitude or as a locator. Setting your home node will tell the program where you wish mail to be sent to you.

Examples:

set/name Ian
set/qth Morecambe, Lancashire IO84NB
set/location 48 34 n 12 12 e
set/qra IO84NB
set/home gb7mbc
