[aprssig] Is DXCluster still used?

I already read that document. It talks about the views in APRSdos and how to configure it to handle PacketCluster messages, but it doesn't explain the protocol syntax of the packets themselves.

The original APRSdos had DX cluster modes in it .

See http://aprs.org/APRS-docs/DXCLUSTR.TXT

There might be something useful in there.

If so, where can one find the radio protocol specification for it? I'm
trying to get ready to support the Boy Scouts' Jamboree On The Air, and
would like to have a way of finding them some "good" stations to talk to
(not being an experienced HF DXer myself). So I can use all the help I can

I can see APRS packets that look like

>151803zDX: KV3B-2 14mi 313° 18:01 3857.05N 07652.41W

but how do I interpret this? Which station is the DX, and what frequency
are they on?

Are there other packet format within APRS for DXcluster reports? Are other
non-APRS packet protocols for DXcluster documented anywhere?

Thanks in advance.
