Software Python Ham Radio

I just released a first version of ColorSpot, a command line DX cluster client written in Python. It adds the following benefits to the default telnet stream:

  • displays the DX station’s country
  • displays the DX station’s continent
  • displays if the DX station uses LotW
  • downloads your LotW QSL file and marks all lines with countries that need to be confirmed (optional)
  • displays lines in different colors depending on the continent or band (user configurable)


You can find the code and some more information here.


It is installable via pip:

python3 -m pip install colorspot
