This is an MQTT server which distributes the feed of live spots from, provided by Tom, M0LTE.


The feed is distributed as a hierarchy of topics under pskr/filter/v2/, for example:


Wildcard subscriptions are highly encouraged, for example, to stream reception reports for a single station using mosquitto_sub, subscribe to topic:

mosquitto_sub -h -t "pskr/filter/v2/+/+/SV8DCW/#"

or to stream 10m FT8 reports between the US and England:

mosquitto_sub -h -t "pskr/filter/v2/10m/FT8/+/+/+/+/291/223" -t "pskr/filter/v2/10m/FT8/+/+/+/+/223/291"

The whole spot is returned in the payload of each message. A spot looks like this:

  "sq": 30142870791,
  "f": 21074653,
  "md": "FT8",
  "rp": -5,
  "t": 1662407712,
  "sc": "SP2EWQ",
  "sl": "JO93fn42",
  "rc": "CU3AT",
  "rl": "HM68jp36",
  "sa": 269,
  "ra": 149,
  "b": "15m"
