commands are available to display information pertaining to the DX cluster
network. Most of the SHOW commands
default to the users call if no call is specified in the command.
command displays the physical configuration of the DX cluster network. The nodes are listed along with the users
connected to each node. An optional parameter
at the end of the command can be used to show the configuration of just one
The SHOW/NODES command
displays a list of DX cluster nodes connected in the network.
The SHOW/USERS command
displays a list of users connected to the node. A call displayed in parentheses () signifies that user is not
present at his station (see SET/NOHERE command). An asterisk by the call signifies that the station is in
The SHOW/CLUSTER command
displays the number of nodes in the current cluster configuration, the number
of local users, the total number of users, and the uptime for the node.
The SHOW/UPTIME command
displays the uptime for the node.
The SH/LOG command
displays the log data for the station showing dates and times when the station

A George Carlin's 7 words (plus a few others) you can 't
say on TV filter is active to keep things “G” rated. The Carlin filter is applied to user spots as well as spots
coming in from other nodes on the network.
Spots coming in on the network get dumped if they contain restricted
language. If any of the Carlin words
are contained in a user announcement, the user gets a message:
Your DX/WX/announce was aborted since
it contains restricted language.
Additionally, AR-Cluster has
advanced protocol for tracking questionable spots across the network. Spots for DX, Announcement, TALK, WWV, and
WX can be traced by sysops back to their source. The trace commands generate special protocol walks the network
back to the source of the spot. The
route of the spot will then be displayed to the sysop along with the user or
node that generated the spot. If a user
is telneting into a node, his Internet address will also be displayed. This capability has been very successful in
tracking interference to the cluster network.
