dxcc software is a ham radio callsign DXCC lookup utility. dxcc is a small command line utility which determines the ARRL DXCC entity of a ham radio callsign, based on the cty.dat country file by Jim Reisert, AD1C.

Example

[user@host ~]$ dxcc VK9DNX
Callsign: VK9DNX

Main Prefix: VK9N
Country Name: Norfolk I.
WAZ Zone: 32
ITU Zone: 60
Continent: OC
Latitude: -29.00
Longitude: -168.00
UTC shift: -11.5

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.

GUI

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.
