The services running on the HamSpots Server that manage Band Activity data and Text Messaging for old (pre 2.15.0) versions of JTAlert have been disabled. Spots upload to HamSpots is not affected by this change.

Server load has seen a significant increase in recent weeks. This change is part of the current Server load reduction activity.

It is very unlikely they will be re-enabled in the future.

If either of these two disabled services is important to you, a JTAlert upgrade to a more recent version will be needed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Important Change:

The service responsible for the spot uploads to HamSpots from old (pre 2.15.0) versions of JTAlert has now also been turned off.

All three services, Spotting, Text Messages and Band Activity are now permanently disabled for old
no longer supported pre 2.15.0 JTAlert versions. Users who wish to use one or more of these JTAlert features will need to upgrade JTAlert.

This permanent change affects, approximately,
less than 0.5% of active JTAlert users.
