Hi Laurie….


Yes, the Ignored Callsign appears as it should if it is not B4.   I checked several random calls on 40m FT8 and it worked well.  Then I tried a couple that were B4 and it failed.


So, there ya go! J

I have already worked the station and it properly identified in the displayed calls as B4 (callsign – B4).   But, it didn’t show either the blue (default) Ignored Callsign background colour or the user-selected B4 background colour, which in my case is purple.  I know it won’t show both but it should show the default blue if it’s on the ignore list, I believe.  The background is always grey or grey with a green border if he’s calling CQ. 

The callsign also used to display in WSJT-X (2,2.2) as Ignored (blue) whenever it was decoded but that is not happening now, either.  It just displayed as green (CQ) or grey when in QSO.   Hmmm…

So, I totally removed the callsign from the ignored list, disabled both of the alerts (above) and rebuilt the alert databases.  Now it shows with the proper purple colour (B4) or purple with a green border for CQ in both JT Alert and WSJT-X. 

Then I reapplied the Ignored Callsign alert (both), with the callsign entered and rebuilt the alert database.  Unfortunately, it went back to the above situation, only grey background or grey with green border in JT Alert and no B4 indication in WSJT-X.

That’s what I’ve done to try to narrow the situation….I hope it helps.



You only need to change the enabled state via the "Settings>Alerts" menu. The corresponding checkbox in the Settings window is automatically linked to the main gui menu.

Rebuilding the Alert database is not needed for ignored callsigns.

Question, does the ignored coloring get applied if the Callsign is not a B4? You can quickly test this by right-clicking any non-B4 callsign and adding it to the ignored list. It should then appear with the ignored coloring when next decoded. When next decoded a simple right-click and you can remove it from the ignored list without needing to open the Settings window.
