v1.470: EiBi database as a second source of DX labels
v1.470 October 15, 2021
EiBi database now used as a second source of (read-only) DX labels.
For details shift-click in an empty spot of the DX label area above the frequency scale. Or use the first few entries in the right-click menu (two-finger tap on mobile) or use the keyboard shortcut "|". Then click the help button at upper right of the DX label edit panel.
Since the EiBi database does not provide a definitive signal category for each station a custom heuristic was developed to classify each station into one of the 12 categories shown. Some stations are still misclassified, notably "out-of-band" broadcast stations. If you notice specific problems, or can think of better solutions, please let us know. The goal is not to resort to a list of specific exceptions as we want a heuristic that can be applied to the twice-yearly EiBi database updates, no matter how they change.
