WA9PIE-2 DX Cluster
The WA9PIE-2 Global DX Spotting Network is open to all ham radio operators.

A bit about the WA9PIE-2 Global DX Spotting Network:
It is hosted in the Google Cloud to enable a high-speed service that is highly reliable.
This cluster node does not filter spots. I leave this up to the connected stations to decide what they wish to filter.
This cluster node is directly connected to many DX cluster nodes around the world where more than 80% of the user created spots originate.
6 nodes in NA
8 nodes in EU
2 nodes in AS
1 node in SA
1 node in OC
(There are no full-time cluster nodes in Africa or Antarctica.)
As such, it is truly a "global spotting network." There is no need to maintain multiple connections to various DX cluster nodes or to wonder where the most up-to-date spots might come from. This has all been taken care of in the design of WA9PIE-2.
At any one time, there are roughly 6,000 ham radio operators connected to this network of nodes.
