Yes, K.D., I have different "Wanted States" on each band where I still need states (160m, 12m, and  10m).

Thanks for the suggestion!

Do you have 160 checked in the Settings->Manage Settings...->Alerts->Wanted
US State->Individual Bands?

First of all, let me thank you again for all of the effort that you put into

I do not have an effective antenna on 160 meters, so my WAS total on that
band is rather meager. I did fire-up on 160 Saturday night and a station in
Virginia (which is checked as a needed state in JT-Alert) answered my CQ. I
remembered that I needed Virginia, so I was surprised that an alert did not
appear (I have configured JT-Alert to show the desired call with a yellow
background and to beep me when I decode a needed state; I also only generate
alerts for LOTW stations). I stopped and re-started JT-Alert and sure
enough, the alert came through as I would have expected. During my QSO with
the first station, another station from Virginia was decoded and he did not
generate an alert even though the first station continued to show an alert
throughout our QSO. I later worked the second station and as I recall, he
did show a normal alert during our QSO. The call sign of the first station
in Virginia was N4KWO and the call sign of the second station was KX4P; both
stations are LOTW. I am using version 2.0.9 of JT-Alert without the file
over-write update that you released recently.

160 meters is the only band where I have observed what appears to be
inconsistent behaviour, but I have worked all states on bands other than 160
meters, 12 meters, and 10 meters (thanks to JT-Alert), so I do not have
"Needed States" checked on most bands. I have seen other needed states
generate alerts normally on 160 meters since Saturday night.
