Thanks everyone.  My problem was fixed - it was Hi Bill, have you accidentally enabled the Resend UDP packets option. Look at Settings/Applications/WSJT-X/JTDX and the last item on the Options menu in the right hand pane..

Thanks and 73...   Bill

I’m having some issues with my new install of JTAlert. I recently bought a new computer and moved things over. Mostly new install with a few files moved over like Logs, and history.

 

The problem I’m having is slow decode of callsigns and extremely slow of posting of QSO in my logbook of Ham Radio Deluxe. I’m running JTDX, Ham Radio Deluxe, along with a Flex Radio Smart SDR with the newest version of software for pretty much everything.

 

Once I work someone and the QSO needs to be logged, JTAlert hangs for minutes and pretty much locks up. Most of the time it wont log the QSO automatically even though I have it selected to do so. After about a minute, it catches up and posts. However that is about 2 to 3 cycles way afterwards.

 

Any suggestions or ideas would be great.

JTAlert hanging when logging has been experienced by some users of HRD when using an MSAccess log. Are you using an MSAccess log type in HRD?
In most cases the fix was to perform a full export of their current log, then create a new log with a new ODBC DSN in HRDLogbook, import the previous export, then set JTAlert to use the new log. In a very small number of cases, this fix didn't work, the ultimate fix was to upgrade HRDLogbook to use a MariaDB log type. HRD themselves recommend MariaDB over MSAccess. HRD have a tutorial video somewhere on how to perform the MariaDB upgrade.

JTAlert does not allow removing menus. Are you referring to JTAlert or some other application?

Please post an image of the window with the missing menu. Don't post an image of your entire desktop, just the affected window is all that is needed.

FYI, the enabling of that option is not the problem. The problem is having that option enabled AND having the port set to match the WSJT-X UDP Server port (typically 2237). They should never match.

Thanks to a number of people in this group, I was able to fix my problem and get JTAlert to communicate with WSJT and DXLab and start showing decodes, callers, and Alerts.  But now I have a new problem.  JTAlert keeps repeating itself.

For example, I get a decode for XE2OR, K0OOK along with others.  Every single decode repeats over and over again.  Even if I don't see any more decodes for a specific call sign for five or ten minutes, they keep repeating in JTAlert.

Moreover, if I log a QSO in DXLab DX Keeper, it will log that contact over and over again.  It logged the same QSO over and over again until I can shut down JTAlert with the task manager.

I shut down all the DXLab apps and the problem persists.  I then shut down WSJT but JTAlert keeps repeating the old decodes, even with no input.

I have no clue what I may have done to it now.

I have enclosed a short video (in windows .wmv format) to show what it is doing.  For this video I have JTAlert running with the DXLab apps and WSJT shut down.

Any thoughts?

JTAlert repeating decodes and logging is caused by having the "Resend WSJT-X UDP packets..." in JTAlert or "Secondary UDP Server (depreciated)" in WSJT-X enabled AND having changed the port to match the UDP Server port in WSJT-X. The ports should be the same!

Most likely it is the JTAlert "Resend" option is enabled and set to the same port as the WSJT-X UDP Server, typically 2237. This results in JTAlert resending incoming UDP packets back to its input listening port creating a feedback loop.

Have you enabled the "Secondary UDP Server (deprecated)" in WSJTX ->

Are you trying to start a new qso before the program has saved the first one?

Hi Adrian,

Sorry for not mentioning your name. The reason ... I deleted all those emails already, including the garbage box and I couldn't remember your and the other fellows name. Mea culpa!

And yes, that's what I did. AVIRA ... switching OFF; JTAlert ... new install; AVIRA ... switching ON, JTAlert & JTDX ON ... It runs & runs & runs (Copyright by Volkswagen) 😁.

also several times in the past. I downloaded the newest "JTAlert 2.50.4.Install.exe" and tried to make the recommended new install. Unfortunately it didn't work out properly. When clicking on the install.exe the procedure started as usual but after a few seconds the window # 2 popped up ...




As you may see the program got installed BUT ...


after a second or so windows # 4 came up ...





At the very same moment the installation procedure got aborted and all the files in the Hamapps folder # 2 were removed.


Well, here I'm. Any advise what may cause this misbehave and how to overcome it? TIA!

The problem is that your Protection software was interfering with the installation. The installer when extracting files creates files in a temporary location first then moves them to the install location was they have been fully extracted and written to disk. Your protection software removed files that the installer had not finished moving to the new location.

The problem is with Avira falsely flagging the JTAlert installer files, The is nothing that the JTAlert installer can do, it is in your hands to curb this unwarranted interference by Avira.

Re: jtalert logging

Michael Black
 

It doesn't pull...WSJTX pushes.

You need to run JTAlert's "Rebuild" at least once to bring in old QSOs from whatever log you have.

And then re-run the Rebuild to bring in LOTW confirmations and such too.

Best to use a real logger....I like Log4OM but there are several to choose from....JTAlert shows you what it works with.

Logging is done via a data packet sent via UDP from WSJT-X to JTAlert.  JTAlert then constructs an ADIF record and will use whatever the logging program needs to send it....typically using a TCP connection.
