I apologize for emailing you, but I have been unable to figure out how to post a ‘reply’ within any thread I read. There is no Reply ‘button’ as there is with other groups I belong to.
I recently installed JTAlert 2.50.0 and I love the new, flexible callsigns display. That is a great enhancement. Thank you for a fabulous upgrade.
However, I am running into some issues, namely:
- When logging a completed contact, the instant the ‘logging successful’ confirmation window pops up, the Callsigns window goes blank, and I have not found any way to prevent this. In the past, I was able to select the next station to be contacted while the logging was occurring. Now I have to wait a full cycle and relocate the station of interest within all the callsigns displayed.
- For some reason I am also getting a large Decodes window opening whenever I launch the app, and I have tried but failed to get that to stop. I have to manually close the window every time. (my computer screen is not large, and I cannot accommodate any ‘extra’ windows)
- FYI, I have seen your recommendation to use UDP Server address 18.104.22.168 in WSJT-X and, of course, the downloaded newest WSJT-X release installed with those settings but, unless I changed that back to 127.0.0.1, my JTAlert Callsigns window always remained blank – nothing was being displayed.
- I had thought that callsign clicking actions are dictated by WSJT-X. Is that correct? I ask because I am finding the double-click on a callsign for some reason behaves differently when done within the WSJT-X Band Activity window or within the JTAlert Callsigns window. Double-clicking a decoded callsign in WSJT-X moves the RX frequency focus and enables TX. Double-clicking a displayed callsign within the JTAlert moves the RX frequency focus but does not enable TX. Is that correct/as-designed?
Related to that last item, I would very much like to have actions for both single- and double-click, whereby a single-click on a station of interest focusses the RX frequency accordingly, and a double-click both focusses the RX frequency and enables TX. There are many times when I merely wish to observe a station for a brief period before calling – usually to wait until his current contact is finishing before calling. If, as I had thought, clicking actions are controlled solely by WSJT-X, then I will make my suggestion/request with that group.
