Dxtra is the developer of the popular WorldStation™ Radio Control Software." Power", "flexibility" and "reliability" and just plain fun are several words to describe our software. We cover all the bases from scanning, databases, TCP/IP networking, Internet Conferencing and much more. We have written drivers to support not only the RX-320D but many additional radios such as the RX-340, Orion, ICOM R-75, Drake R8/AB and the Racal 6790/GM.">
This point-and-click "TV Guide" like table is updated automatically every minute for effortless "channel surfing". The factory software that ships with the radio does not have anywhere near the feature set of WorldStation™ and provides basic tuning only. Shortwave radio is known for frequent channel changes — there are over 1,000 actively used shortwave "channels" (i.e. frequencies) but their use varies by time of day, location and even season of the year. So having database support is an indispensable tool. The database will instantly answer questions like "What are all the active BBC World Service frequencies right now?" or "Can I hear Radio Australia from the East Coast of the US in the morning?" (yes you can on 9580 KHz) .
