It's written in Perl and self-contained. A different version of the country file can be used optionally. dxcc only requires Perl and should run on pretty much every operating system.


An optional GUI written in Perl/Tk is available as of 20071026, and may be used by invoking dxcc with the -g command line option. The screen shot shows the GUI which features a world map on which the location of the DXCC is highlighted.

What's New in This Release:

This release adds calculation for the distance and direction (antenna bearing) between your location and the DX country.
The country database has been brought up to date.
