Watch the download carefully, at the end it 'may' get trapped by your virus checker. Simply hit the 3 dots and choose "keep"....then keep anyway and it will work.. (If using Windows Defender)

Subject: [Special] [HamApps] #Announcement #NewRelease : JTAlert 2.50.5 is available


The latest JTAlert version 2.50.5 is now available at



The new installers have been examined by Microsoft and flagged as

Virus/Trojan free. The MS Defender definitions files have been updated

to exclude JTAlert 2.50.5 as a threat.


*** IMPORTANT *** If you use the Ignore Date setting for Worked B4

alerting the existing setting may have been reset or changed. You will

need to go into the JTAlert Settings window, "Alerts -> Worked B4"

section and ensure the Date is set per your requirements.


Full release notes are available at the end of this message. I strongly

encourage all users read these before installing this new JTAlert release.
