Hi,
I don't know if this question is part of the Flex radio but I am looking for a program or list that will give me the azimuth for my antenna. Maybe you could help me?
Thanks

    Most logging programs will include this feature.

    I use DXLab Suite ( https://www.dxlabsuite.com ), It has a fairly steep learning curve but I have yet to find anything it won't do.

    Oh, and it's FREE.

    Hi Albert,

    Are you looking to be able to show azimuth for a specific country from your location? If so go to http://ok2pbq.atesystem.cz/prog/dxcclist.php and enter your grid square on top. You can then print it if you want.

    If not, please provide more detail of what you would like.

    QRZ.com gives a map of the QTH along with azimuth data for the call sign entered.

    Your community is really great. I was looking for a list easy to use. I think I found one you gave me at this address http://ok2pbq.atesystem.cz/prog/dxcclist.php
    A big thank-you.

    If your rotor controller spits out the Yaesu GS-232 protocol, look up PSTROTATOR. It's is simple, inexpensive and works FB. It can be set up for Az/El or just Az.

    I have the Yaesu G-800DXA rotor and E.R.C Mni interface (about $105 US)  and use PstRotatorAZ, i think it was about $30 US.  What a great combination.  I can even use remote from the office and control my antenna, or even a Web interface from my iPad.  One of the best investments I have made in my station, other than my 6500 and antenna.
