JTAlert has long had the Grid mismatch warning, not just with 2.16.14.
WSJT-X and JTAlert both restrict Grids to 6 characters maximum.
WSJT-X doesn't allow for entering of more than 6 characters on the main window or in its Settings window. Similarly, JTAlert doesn't allow for more that 6 characters.
Since 8 character grids are not conveyed on air via FT8 or any of the other supported modes, I don't see any reason to extend JTAlert to use 8 character Grids.
Your only solution to this is to remove the 8 character edit you applied to the WSJT-X ini file.
I don't see how PSKReporter is relevant.
