Feature suggestion - option to partition call window for DX vs Domestic #FT8

Pat N6PAT
 

Another from my wish list:

An option to allow splitting DX vs domestic call signs into separate partitions within the call sign window. Allow the user to turn  the option on or off as they wish.

What do you think?

JTAlert 2.50 Won't start

alchowiake@...
 

I have windows 10 with ALL Microsoft updates installed. I have Net 5 runtime installed but when I load 2.50 Frameworkcheck says "This app can't run on your PC" and a bunch of other random error messages follow.


Possible Anomaly In Message Window

John Petrocelli
 

Hello,

  I think I see an interesting behavior or anomaly in the Message Window in version 2.50.x.

 The scenario .............

  Receive a text message from station "XXXXX"
  Start to reply to the message

  See another station "YYYYY" calling CQ and reply to that stations CQ
  Switch back to the Message Window and finish typing the text to station "XXXXX"
  Send the message and realize that the message is actually sent to station "YYYYY"
  as the target/recipient has changed to the current station that one is working.

  Is this by design or is it something else.

  Thanks in advance to Laurie and all who reply

John

Re: 2.5.0 -- AutoIt Error

David Merchant - K1DLM
 

I'm getting an AutoIT error every time I try to launch JTAlert 2.50.  Specifically, the error says "Line 6817 (File C:\Program Files(x86)\HamApps\JTAlert\JTAlert.exe)  Error: Subscript used on non-accessible variable.

I was able to get it to load initially and was using the software.  However, it wouldn't let me select a station for my next QSO, so I tried restarting it.  That's when the error occured.

Any suggestions?

Thanks & 73,

Re: Wanted county #FT8

Paul&Tracy Richards
 

Hello Laurie

Some further info here.

The County Hunting game is a bit divided at present.

We have the CQ Magazine sponsored WACA which has been around for donkeys years but frankly has fallen into a bit of disarray. CQ accept paper cards and Eqsl but only if the US based Eqsl user has authorised status. As you have noted, even finding a list of counties that qualify for their award is now problematic. Due to the difficulties in non US hams getting confirmations for this program and the old fashioned card checking process this award is mainly chased by US based hams. CQ do not accept LOTW.

The newer player in town is QRZ who have their own Counties Award using a slightly different county list which is easily obtained.
QRZ accept confirmations via their own logging program and LOTW - but not EQSL. For non US hams, confirmations are easy to obtain, the QRZ system auto tallies your worked counties and applying for the award is as easy as pressing one button.

Gridtracker appears to be setup with the QRZ county list. This makes sense as the CQ Award has never demonstrated any interest in appealing to FT8 users or non US based hams in my opinion. Everyday there are county activators who drive around the USA activating rare counties but I have never once seen these activators on digital modes. I am told no station has ever worked all counties on digital (even in the USA) - it seems the CQ Award is focused on ssb and cw and thus probably not a great match for JTAlert.

Currently I chase both programs in the forlorn hope that one day CQ may get their act together with this Award.

It is worth comparing the tired old CQ Award with the Russian Districts Award - the Russians have a fantastic new webpage, easy online tracking, electronic confirmations and electronic award application and issuance.

I hope this info is helpful should you decide to add county tracking down the line - in short - the QRZ program may be better aligned to JTAlert users

Cheers

Hi Laurie,
thanks for the quick response, but the value is always +1,0 (one comma zero) and never change.

now my clock is off 0.294ms and there is over 20 decodes per cycle

Alert Filtering enhancement ...

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

Laurie,

As you move more of the code into the NET framework, please consider
making the alert filtering band specific. Specifically, I turn *OFF*
"Show only Callsign generating alerts" on bands with little activity
(e.g. 6m, 12m, etc.) but turn it *ON* for crowded bands (e.g. 20m, 40m,
sometimes 30m, etc.). It would be nice to have that setting (and the
distance in "Do not show NON ALERTING callsigns under this distance")
be restored to band specific values when returning to a band.

73,

... Joe, W4TV

73, Bill  AA4M

That popup cannot be moved. Its position is fixed to the location of the parent window that presented the popup, in this case the main JTAlert window. This is behavior that as existed for many years.

JTAlert is in transition moving from the old code-base to the new .NET code. That popup is still living in the old code. Eventually it will switch over to the new code and no longer be tied to the old JTAlert main window. Notifications in the new code will be handled in a different manner avoiding the current hard-coded positioning of these popups that scroll up out of the JTAlert window title-bar.

The DT shown in the Callsigns window status bar is a median calculation of the DT values of the incoming decodes. It is calculated over time using a reasonable number of samples to give a meaningful result. The number of samples and the time period are automatically adjusted taking into consideration how busy the band is. Hover the mouse over the DT value, the resulting tooltip will show how many samples were used and the time duration in calculating the DT.

Question: Is there a way to delete one or more callsigns that are saved in the Messaging address list?  
I can't seem to delete the ones that were one and done texts.

Also, in the message address window, if I select a station to message and start typing them a message, and while during that someone connects, that new connected call is immediately moved to the messaging window as the addressee.  I can see why that is done, but I'm thinking it should not change the messaging addressee once I started to type a message.  Was this/that the intention?

thank you

No it is not possible to delete callsigns from the previously used list (below the callsign edit field). That list is automatically cleared when JTAlert is restarted. What is the issue you want to resolve by removing callsigns?

Currently if you want to avoid callsign changes when your qso partner changes, the
wsjtx DX Call, you have to turn off the "Follow WSJT-X DX Call" option under the Options popup of the Messaging window.
   

Ignoring DX Call changes if you're currently editing a message is a worthwhile change. I'll add it to the todo list.

Been using for some years on the WIA online awards scheme. Never had an issue.

This thread is discussing Counties, the cublog lookup is for Countries <- note the "r". A subtle difference in spelling, but a significant difference in the lookup type.

I use Dimension 4 (http://www.thinkman.com/dimension4/) on my PC to keep the time sync'ed.  Once I installed this software my timing issues have been resolved.

I did not know about BKTimesync.  I will give it a look.
