FOC Reverse Beacon Network Server

The FOC RBN Server provides spots from the Reverse Beacon Network which are filtered by FOC member callsigns. It can be accessed in different ways.

Telnet

Connect to foc.dj1yfk.de on port 7300.

Most logging programs have a telnet client built in but you can also use a standalone program like telnet.exe on Windows (how to install) or the free PuTTY telnet client.

Once you are connected, you can select which spots are shown:

These settings are remembered for your callsign, so on the next connect you'll not have to enter it again, regardless on which port you connect. Note that the old ports (7373, 7374) still work for backwards compatibility.

The command set/foc <callsign> adds a new call to the list of calls. Calls with portable extensions or additional prefixes are recognized automatically. sh/u lists all connected users.

Web Cluster

You can watch the spots in your web browser in different ways:
