This server provides services for members of the First Class CW Operators' Club (FOC) and the general public. It's maintained by Fabian, DJ1YFK (FOC #1796) and is not an official web site of the club.
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.
foc.dj1yfk.de on port
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:
set/members- Member spots only (default on port 7300)
set/nominees- Member and nominee spots (default on legacy port 7373)
set/short- Short output format (default on legacy port 7374)
set/raw- All RBN spots, unfiltered
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.
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.
You can watch the spots in your web browser in different ways:
Clients online: 28 (telnet), 29 (web)
