So much going on in your description.
Does the SignalLink support CAT control?
I suggest, you get WSJT-X HRD Cat Control working first, then move onto Getting JTAlert Logging working.

This is one of those issue where you don't know who to ask because there are several things in play here.
My understanding of JTAlert-X is that it is responsible for looking up the QSO info on QRZ.com, and installing the name and such to the completed QSO from WSJT, and sending it on it's way to the HRD Logbook, "My Logbook".
While I have been using this successfully for about a year now with no problems with my Kenwood TS-590S and HRD, I had to install a SignaLink sound card for other reasons. I don't use the Kenwood internal soundcard anymore.
Rather than get Carpel Tunnel from retyping everything, let me paste my question I posted recently to the WSJT Users Group.
Please understand that the most important part of these two problems (for me) is to get JTAlert-X to send a completed QSO to the HRD Logbook. That's why I'm here.
I'm having a problem setting up WSJT-X (1.9.1) / JTAlertX to work with
HRD like it used to.
To simplify digital mode control, I eliminated using the Kenwood TS-590S
sound card, and reinstalled my SignaLink sound card instead. HRD helped
me with the setup and the DM-780 is working fine for all digital modes,
WSJT / JTAlertX used to work perfectly with HRD before this point also,
logging all my contacts from WSJT/JTAlertX into HRD, changing the radio
frequency as I switched WSJT to different bands/modes, etc. Perfect.
Two problems: (HRD running as normal)
1. I have no CAT control. I can't change bands, in fact the bands
window doesn't show you what band you are on. Before using the
SignaLink, I would simply change to another band/frequency using the
dropdown box, then the radio would change to that band/frequency, as
well as the SteppIR antenna.
It transmits fine, receives fine, and the Power and Receive levels are
controlled via the SignaLink as they should be now. Strangely enough,
if I change the band on the radio, WSJT will follow suit, but the
dropdown box will not work that shows you what frequency you should be on.
2. It logs the QSO's into the WSJT ADIF file, but JTAlertX does not
transfer the completed QSO into HRD anymore.
Here is my setup as best i can describe it.
HRD for software.
SignaLink sound card.
Kenwood TS-590S, Menu #63 Set to ACC2 port for Data Communication.
One cable from the Kenwood ACC2 Port into the SignaLink USB port, then
the outgoing SignaLink port (Radio) going to USB #5 Codec in the computer.
One cable from the Kenwood USB port direct to the USB #8 Codec in the
computer. (for HRD control)
Rig: Kenwood TS-590S
Left Pane: COM 4 (USB #5 Codec), Eight, two, Hardware
Right Pane: CAT, Rear Data, USB, None
Audio: Both Input & Output (5-USB Audio Codec)
Enable HRD V5/VB6 Logging, Checked
Settings / HRD V5/V6 / PC IPv4 Address 127.0.0.1
Settings / Sound Card /  Speakers / headphones (Realtek) (This
enables JTAlertX to announce the wanted Countries, etc through the
stereo speaker system)
That's everything I can think of to describe my situation.
I had a previous WSJT situation which I won't go into now because adding
the SignaLink cured that problem. (as well as some others)
So the current status is that WSJT and JTAlert-X is working as it's own entity.
1. JTAletrs-X won't send completed logs to HRD.
2. I have no CAT control using WSJT.
These are probably related, I don't know, but I'm looking for help from wherever I can get it.
Thanks in advance,
