Numerous PacketCluster “clones” have come and gone over the years, however there is one, called DX Spider, which provides a very similar user interface to that of AK1A, allows internet connections of users and node-to-node links, is actively supported by the author, and best of all…is freeware. One of the strengths of DX Spider is its very powerful and flexible DX spot filtering routines.

Do not be afraid to try a command to see if it will work, at the worst you will get an error message.  If you require any help on a command, just type help followed by the command you want help on. Look at the "DXSpider Command Reference" section to see what help can be found.
