Is anyone aware of swl software that identifies or describes the spikes on the display of a panadapter telling you what you may be listening to ?

By spikes do you mean the center frequency of the station you are listening to or want info on? 

On the internet, you can go to this site

http://www.short-wave.info/?freq=6160

make the freq to the khz of your choice,  or just google the freq. and select the short-wave.info web site - lots of good info including the transmitter site by lat and long.

TRX-Manager is software that lets you preload the current SW broadcast database in it, so you can search that.  DXtreme Software will also do that too.

I am sure there are lots of others, but those are the ones I can think of.

Cheers and good luck !

For those legacy Flex owners, there is a new version of PowerSDR that does just what John is asking. It lists shortwave spots and ham dx spots right in the panadapter. Here's the link: http://ke9ns.com/flexpage.html

As Gerald has indicated, Flex has supported Darrin in his efforts are no doubt are well aware of the new features, many of which I too would like to see incorporated in SmartSDR.
