As of JTAlert 2.15.4, the use of the Default
Windows device is no longer supported, a named sound device is
required. See the release notes (reproduced below).
Well I goofed
again and accidentally enabled the one and only sound card
option to be picked in jtalert. Now I get a periodic window
telling me what I did wrong and that all alerts will be
How do I undo
that mistake so that window stops popping up?
I only have one
sound card and obviously need it for wsjt-x.
reloading the program but no help. I tried uninstalling the
program, no help.
helping me with my blunder, (again).
If you run Windows, WSJT-X & JTAlert on a single sound device
PC you run a very high risk of playing Windows sounds or JTAlert
sounds on-air. Listen to 20 or 40m and it wont be long before you
hear these sounds being played, it is very common.
I suggest installing a cheap usb sound dongle (usually $5 or less),
they are very common and readily available. If that is not an
option, install one of the free virtual audio devices and set
JTAlert to use that audio device, while it wont play alerts, it
will prevent JTAlert sound device warnings. I have used the free
VB-Audio cable software. https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/

JTAlert will now present a dialog to change the device

Reason for change:
In the past JTAlert would default to using the Windows
default if the
previously used device is no longer found or was never
set. This worked,
but in some cases had the undesirable affect that sounds
played on-air if the users sound devices had been
after a Windows update) such that the Windows default was
now the WSJT-X
rig audio device. By eliminating the use of the Windows
provided the user doesn't set the JTAlert audio device
matching the Rig
audio device JTAlert sounds will never be played on-air.
