THE ORIGINAL DX-CLUSTER APP
iCluster is an iPhone and iPad App for HAMs, SWLs (Short wave radio listeners) or for everybody who want’s to know, what’s going on on the amateur radio frequencies.
This App is connecting the so called international DX-Cluster database in realtime. The results are analyzed and displayed in an easy to read overview.
The content can be filtered by frequency (e.g. 80m, 40m etc.) or mode (CW = Morse, Beacon or digital modes), Call Prefix, ITU/CQ Zone, Country and many more.
Calls (the callsign of the operators) will be decoded automatically by the App. This allows even inexperienced users to know the countries of the operators.
iCluster is an ideal tool for amateur radio operators for field days or contests. But also unlicensed users can use iCluster to find out the frequencies for their shortwave scanner or short wave radio receiver.

This App exists since the App Store Exists as this was my first App. It has been continuously improved and re-written several times and is now available as Version 12, written in Swift 5.
It's interesting to see how many other bad copies of my App are available on the App Store. If there is another DX-Cluster App, offering features my App is missing, just let me know.
This update fixes a few Filter and Alarm bugs, contains some new DX Cluster servers and an update Callprefix database.
Ratings and Reviews
Latest version really rocks! Filters much easier to set up and they work well. Thanks for the improvements!
Great mobile ham App
This is a must have App for mobile Ham. The new filtering feature allows you to only see spots from spotters in your region, as well as a bunch of other options. I was looking for that feature in a cluster. Qrz integration is cool too.
Only wish there was a logging program integrated That way I wouldn't have to switch back and forth between Apps.
Really Nice App
Great app for checking the band. Works well and is fast on a WiFi connection. Would have given 5 Stars if you could filter the spots by your country. Looking at a bunch of spots submitted by DX amateurs, does not let me know what we are hearing stateside. This is also true if the spots are all by USA hams, DX will not know what their area is hearing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
