What if there are no comments in JTAlerts or WSJT-X, will the comments in ACLogs be retained?

Yes they will be retained if JTAlert is setup correctly.

If both WSJT-X and JTAlert don't have comment text, then the logging instruction sent to ACLog from JTAlert doesn't include the Comment field which normally won't clear any data you have manually entered in ACLog during the QSO except if you have the "Clear ACLog fields prior to logging" setting enabled in JTAlert.

   

If your manually entering data or performing xml lookups causing the ACLog data entry fields to contain data prior to JTAlert logging then you need to turn that option off. Alternatively use the data entry fields in JTAlert (you can have JTAlert perform the XML lookup).
