Via what "mechanism" does JT Alert update QSOs into HRD Logbook.  Is it using a UDP, updating the DB directly or how?

To be clear, I'm not asking for configuration instructions, I'm just trying to under the mechanics of how it updates . . .

Hi Paul,

I believe mechanism for the current version of HRD is that JTAlert uses the HRD TCP/IP server API to enter QSOs. That means that the internal logic of HRD to derive fields is used. I also believe worked before queries are made by direct read-only access to the HRD logbook database tables, this probably because HRD logbook doesn't provide any mechanism to look up arbitrary QSO details.

Before the HRD logbook TCP/IP API worked properly (pre v6) I believe the only way for JTAlert to enter new QSOs was to directly insert records into he HRD logbook database tables.
