colrdx - Man Page

Colrdx is a simple client for amateur radio dx-clusters. In a split-screen display you can type commands for the cluster in the bottom part. Messages from the dx-cluster will appear in the main window. There is also a status line at the top with some basic information.
Colrdx needs a callsign in order to be able to login to the cluster.
- -c callsign
Send 'callsign' when connected (required).
