ham radio callsign DXCC lookup utility
dxcc [-g] [-m MYPREFIX] [CALLSIGN]
dxcc determines the ARRL DXCC entity of a ham radio callsign, based on the cty.dat country file by Jim Reisert, AD1C (http://country-files.com/).
If a matching country or entity is found, the entity name, continent, latitude/longitude and other information are printed.
When invoked with the command line option -g , a Perl/Tk GUI with an additional world map showing the location of the DXCC is shown.
If the line option -m [MYPREFIX] is used, the distance and bearing to CALLSIGN is calculated and displayed.
Optional country file. A current version of AD1C's country file is already included in dxcc.
Earth picture for the GUI.
