DX Spot sources. ProLog works with a TNC, the DX Telnet program or DX
Summit and VE7CC internet spot sources. Each source is selectable in

is a wealth of information in the DX Spot window. Each spot contains
two lines of data, the first line being the spot information and the second
is your award status for that entity. In addition, if the spotted
station participates in the LOTW program, "LoTW" is shown in yellow at the
end of the spot line. The default display is in the order each spot is
received, however the list can be reordered by Band, Mode, Spotted Callsign,
Spotter's Callsign or any of the four awards shown: DXCC, WAC, CQ Zone or
ITU Zone. Furthermore, the list can be prioritized in based on QSL
needs for a particular award, grouping all spots for entities not worked
together, entities worked but not confirmed together and finally entities
worked and confirmed together.
By clicking one of the QSL, eQSL or Both
radiobuttons, you can select how the award status is displayed. The DX Spot list
will display award status for strictly paper QSL's or eQSL's or a
combination of Both. Additionally, if you have Rig Control enabled,
you can QSY to a particular spot by a mere click of a button. You can
also review an in depth award status for any entity also by a mere click of
a button. And finally, if you have purchased our CallMaster US/DX
callbook or subscribe to QRZ On-line, you can get address information on the
spotted station simply by clicking a button.
