A bit of FYI for
HRD/JTAlert users. I wanted to make a FT8 only log, so I exported
my FT8 Qs to an adif file, and saved them. Then in HRD I made a
new FT8 log, an access DB.
I had trouble getting JTAlert to change over from the old DB, it
just would not allow a selection for change.
SO... In HRD there is a log/DB manager. In that pane, I found my
new log was on the bottom of the selection list...
Moving it "UP" to the top was what "seemed" to allow JTAlert to
find it... then a rescan of the new log, and all is back to
usual... Just sharing... NE4S,, Mike
Not a big issue at all, and others may not be seeing it, and I may
have done some other silly thing.... But FYI... NE4S, Mike
I assuming your running HRD 6.3 or later.
- JTAlert reads the HRD log databases
setting file (LogbookDatabases.xml) when it first starts, it
doesn't monitor this file looking for changes.
- From you description, it appears that
HRDLogbook doesn't update the LogbookDatabases.xml file when you add a new
log, so that must be happening when HRDLogbook is closed.
To be sure that JTAlert discovers any newly added HRDLogbook
logs, restart HRDLogbook and then restart JTAlert.
Note: Point #2 I cannot confirm as I don't own a copy of HRD to
