DX Bulletin Reader 1.0 by VE3NEA

Posted: August 23rd, 2008 under Hamradio, Software.

I happened to surf by Alex, VE3NEA’s page today, and found that he released a new program. Now if only someone could publish older bulletins as downloadable archives. If you know about any archives, please let me know.

Downloadable zipped bulletinarchives:

  • 425DXNews archive is here.
  • DXNewsLetter archive is here.

Here is a short presentation taken from his page.

DX Bulletin Reader is a tool for viewing, archiving and searching the DX news bulletins. It is written by VE3NEA and can be found at

bullread.gif When the program displays a DX bulletin, it highlights all prefixes, callsigns, IOTA references and grid squares in different colors, and best of all, it highlights the items that are on your DXCC and IOTA Needed lists. Every highlighted item has a tooltip with extra information, such as IOTA group name and prefix, country of the callsign, and latitude/longitude of the Grid Square. If the optional databases are installed, even more information is shown on the tooltips, including the full name and address for the US and Canadian callsigns. The Find function performs full text search in all archived bulletins.
