Google Earth displays spots from the DX cluster

Google Earth is an application, which allows an interactive view from above of the earth's surface. The user can zoom in, move away, rotate. The data is not stored on the computer, but they are loaded from the server. The resulting image on the computer monitor is a combination of satellite images, map, terrain profile and 3D building model. The basic version is available for free download. Google Earth Plus and Google Earth Pro provide even more options and are characterized by a more accurate display of details.


An interesting feature of Google Earth is movement and display. You can thus "fly" the route from home to any place in the world, calculate the distance. The defined routes are attractive, such as the Grand Canyon or the Eiffel Tower in Paris. From a radio amateur point of view, Google Earth has one more use - display of spots from the DX cluster in real time.

Having DX cluster spots displayed on the map provides the advantage of faster orientation in propagation conditions. For example, on VHF bands, a reflective point can be seen at Es. For example, the Live MUF software from G7RAU has a similar function.

Google Earth requires a more powerful computer, the minimum is a processor with a clock frequency 500 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 3D compatible graphics card and Internet connection. You can download Google Earth from the site: https://www.google.com/intl/sk/earth/

After installing and running the program, we only need to enter the data, from where the information for displaying spots from the DX cluster will be loaded. We put them in the "Places" block, where click on the text "My places". This will bring up the context menu, where we select the first item "Add" and from it "Network link".

To the window, which opens, just enter the name (naming, under which this definition will appear in Google Earth), link (link, see. further) and set automatic renewal (refresh). We change it from "Once" to "Periodically" and set the time (1 a minute or more). After entering the data, the spots will start to be displayed immediately. and until, according to one of them, a decision is reached, either you made a mistake in the configuration, but it is still necessary to give a refresh, to update the data.

These are lines with data from the DX cluster:
