Laurie, I don't see anything in the archives
about this, and perhaps I'm the only one having this
problem, but here goes!
I have the word "DX" flagged in JTAlert to show with a
specific color to help me avoid answering a CQ by an
operator who calls "CQ DX" It works fine as long as the
calling format is "CQ DX", however when an op uses the
format "CQ AB1CDE DX", where the "DX" replaces the grid
square, the "DX" is not flagged.
Is there currently a way, or would it be possible at some
point to have the ability to flag a CQ that has "DX"
standing alone - that is, where "DX" is not part of the
call (KB3XDX) or part of the grid square (DX24)?
My reason for this is that in the few seconds available to
reply to a CQ, it is very easy to start answering, only to
realize that the caller wanted DX only.
Finally, does anyone on the forum know how I can start
WSJTX with a higher task priority in Windows 10 by using
the "Applications/Auto-Start/Parameters" function in
JTAlert? I know how to change the priority by using Task
Manager/Details, however that method does not persist
Thanks, and Happy New Year to all!
The Keyword alert only applies to messages that are
non-standard exchange messages, that is free-form.
I was unable to reproduce the alert activating when the
message is of the format "CQ DX CALLSIGN". Are you sure that
type of message is triggering the Keyword alert for you?
I can't see how your getting "DX" keyword alerts in anything
other than a free-form message. Do you have an example?
"DX24" will never be interpreted as a Grid as it is invalid,
the only valid characters for the first two characters of a
Grid are in the range A to R.
I'll add your desire for some sort of "DX"
indicator/exclusion for CQ/QRZ decodes to the todo list.
Regarding a high-priorty start of WSJT-X... You cannot do
this using the JTAlert auto-start parameters. But you can
set JTAlert to start a batch file instead of WSJT-X and have
that batch file start WSJT-X with the elevated priority.

NOTE: I have not tested this but can't see any reason why it
