Just make sure you don't go crazy with the number of wildcards.
From the "Wanted Callsign" topic in the help file...
Important : Wildcard matching is an expensive task, processing wise, and can lead to delays in decode alerting if there are many wildcards defined, especially if there are many decodes to process on a busy band. It is recommended that the number of wildcard filters be kept to a minimum, preferably less than 20.
The above was written when the Bands were not so busy and the number of decodes per period produced by WSJT-X was less than the now normal. 20 may now be too high depending on the Bands used and the capability of the PC running a JTAlert.
