I am running HRD 6.7.277, JTAlert 2.16.7, and WSJT-X.
Country logging is working. Also 100% of the QSOs are logged.
I help friends set this up and when I see the intermittent
logging it is almost always due to the computer ewsources
(CPU/RAM) being insufficient. I had one person trying to run
everything on a 10 year old Fujitsi tablet with 4 GB ram. The OS
was accessing the swap file so much everything would freezes
every few minutes.
Another friend was using a USB to HDMI adapter on his laptop
to drive a 42” TV as a monitor. There wasn’t enough data
throuput for the video.
In most cases once hardware upgrades were performed the
amount ofbdecodes permcycle went up substantially. On 20 meters
yhe last few days i am getting over 36 decodes on many cycles.
First thing to check is CPU. Anything over peaks of 60% usage
consistently should be considered for an upgrade. Second is RAM,
minimum of 8 GB is needed to accompdate the OS and programs.
For those having issues with HRD, the latest version as of
this writing is 6.7.277, not 275. Also check your cpu and ram
usage in Task Manager. Hit CTRT-ALT-DEL and choose Task Manager.
Also try turning off the color notifications and see if it maes
a difference in intermittent logging.

I am using
the latest versions of HRD and JTAlert. JTAlert is set to
log to HRD, the latest version. But randomly JTAlert fails
to log some QSOs to HRD. Then some QSOs will be logged.
Then some will not. As a test, when I run GridTracker (for
an extended period of time) instead of JTAlert, all QSOs
are logged. I am baffled. I prefer JTAlert to GT, but
can't figure out why some QSOs are not logged.
What version of WSJT-X or is it JTDX? Please quote the
actual version number, not "the latest". Thanks
