Hello Laurie-

Moved over to Multicast and all is well now.

Couple of "Nice to Haves"

1. Filter USA calls only. I run HF - 6M on my 6700 so want to see: Caribbean, Mexico, Canada which are filtered out by the N.A. filter. 
   Filtering out USA calls in the Callsigns window would reduce the number of entries on busy bands like 40 & 20M. 
   Finally, it would be nice if each Callsigns window could have it's own filters.

2. Sort Callsigns window by 1, CQ  2. 73 3. DX 4. all others.

Thanks, could not operate FT8 without this app.

Hello Laurie-

Switched over to Multicast but no help. Notice the band and mode are still not found.
Any other suggestions?

1.) Running 8 instances of WSJT-X and JTAlert. Receiving UDP Comm Failure on instance 8.
Each instance of WSJT-X has a unique UDP Port number.

2.) Instance #1 does not always display the Band and Mode.

3.) If all 8 instances of WSJT-X are up and starting JTAlert instances, JTAlert sometimes misses an instance of WSJT-X. Best to start one instance of WSJT-X along with JTAlert and go on until all 8 instances are up.

The new call window is very flexible.

I suggest you move over to using UDP multicast for the WSJT-X UDP Server settings. With multicast there is no need for unique ports, all instances can use the same port.

As for auto-starting WSJT-X, you could try adding in an additional delay for each startup entry. Alternatively, setup a batch file to start WSJT-X then JTAlert followed by a pause and repeat that for the additional instance pairs.

Likely its the port 2333 you're trying to use. That should not be a problem, but I have seen many users set to use 2333 and things stop working because they also have the WSJT-X secondary server enabled and it is set to 2333.

Make sure it is turned off. Also check that you don't have JTAlert set to rebroadcast UDP messages on the same port (under the "Applications -> WSJT-X /JTDX" section of the main JTAlert Settings window).

If you still have problems, use the "Help" -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.
