When I start JTAlert 2.6.27 The Macros window does not come alive.

I have to start that manually.

Always used to be OK.

Can someone point me in the right direction please.

Thanks

David,

I abandoned allwork on trying to get it to work under Wine. The last time I
looked at it was when we were trying to get it to work reliably. Since there
there has been a lot added to JTAlert, much of which relies on low-level code
(Windows message hooks, control subclassing) which would make it even more
problematic.

Sorry, I wont be looking at Wine again.

I'm running WSJT-X 1.7.0 r6248 and clicking a macro button sets Next and starts transmitting immediately.
I remember us going around about this and Bill couldn't do a tri-state solution because of the diffs between Tab 1 and 2.

Jim,

Once the free message "Next" radio button is enabled, whether by a user manually clicking the radio button or by JTAlert, the transmission of that message is "Next" in the queue and will start transmitting the message at the top of the next minute.

Enabling the radio button doesn't initiate transmission of the Free Text message immediately.

Are you observing something different? Is WSJT-X behaving differently when manually enabling the Radio button as opposed to the radio button being enabled via UDP? They should be the same.
What version of WSJT-X are your running?

Yes!

Decodes, logging event, send free-text messages and responding to a CQ are all available via the UDP interface. Take away the need to have JTAlert find a local running WSJT-X and you could have JTAlert running remote from WSJT-X.

Big picture. it should be doable as part of the JTAlert V3 development. V3 is a total rewrite using a new language and development environment.

To have WSJT-X on a remote machine would force the user to provide certain settings that currently JTAlert automatically determines by enumerating the running wsjtx.exe processes and examining the configs. If a user wanted to run with WSJT-X on a remote machine, it would be expected that they have sufficient skill to configure JTAlert correctly.

BTW, JTAlert V3 is being coded under .NET and I am endeavouring to keep the code "MONO" compatible, which should allow for Linux and MacOS versions of JTAlert. The primary focus is Windows, but I have my eye on the other environments.

Hi Laurie,


I am curious to know how much of the interface between JTAlert and WSJT-X has been implemented in UDP? The reason I ask is I am moving (slowly) to Linux.  I know there is slim to none chance JTAlert will be implemented on Linux.   However the idea is to run JTAlert on a Windows machine and WSJT-X on a Linux machine with UDP as the interface between the two. 


Also, I believe the IP address in JTAlert is hardcoded to 127.0.0.1 (but I may be wrong about that).  At a very minimum that would need to be opened up to be configured. 


73,

Ron / W4MMP

Ron,

The 127.0.0.1 is not hardcoded in JTAlert. It can easily be the IP address of the PC. The value used comes from reading the WSJT-X config. Determining the location of the config is done by examining the running WSJT-X processes and determining where the config file resides for each WSJT-X instance (up to 10 are supported).

This requirement to enumerate the wsjtx.exe processes means that WSJT-X and JTAlert must be running on the same PC. There is now way around that at this time. Sorry.

Kirk - N6SXR


Kirk,

Tha Band Activity display provides a visible indication as to the amount of activity on the Bands (taken from HamSpots.net spots). The different colors, which are user configurable, are designed to give an indication on how "Hot" the bands are with activity.

The Colors for the different thresholds can be set in the Settings window, "Window -> Band Activity Display" section.
You can also turn off the hiding of bands when there is no activity if you wish.

Would it be possible to add the dB after the call, in decoded calls, so that one can pick the one most likely to work without looking for it in WSJT-X and then selected it using UDP ? This would prevent me from trying to work a station at -25 when an equally new one is much stronger.

Jim,

I'll add your request to the todo list.

The only way to achieve what you want at this present time is to have the Decodes History window open. It shows the callsigns colored the same as the main JTAlert window plus has the dB column visible when in its reduced (narrow) size.

Laurie calls it a heat map  in the tutorial and gives a band activity  snap shot;  however, the activity you see is based on world wide information from Ham Spots data as I understand.    I use it in conjunction with the Band Activity window which I keep open as well the call sign window to get the bigger picture.

I asked for a tri-state solution and it was disapproved.
Clicking the Next isn't all that much to ask.  Probably a small pain if you use the macro buttons a lot.    Only time I use them is for a signal message or a non-standard 73...but only then non-standard 73 when I see a non-standard response from them.   There are at least two people who have said they won't log your QSO if you don't follow the EXACT exchange showed in the help file so I don't send any non-standard messages unless they do.

Are you using macros a lot?

And you're right....WSJT-X was moving stuff around and JTAlert relied on everything being at the same location so was very problematic.

Close, but no cigar.
 
Setting the "Don't activate WSJT-X Free Text Field", results in the macro being loaded to message 5 BUT the Next indicator is not set.
 
I can manually set the Next indicator, which is acceptable, but is different than V1.5.
 
Checking again, I find that in V1.6 there is no way with or without UDP to set the message and the next indicator in WSJT-X.
 
Without UDP, you can’t even set the macro message and with UDP you can set the macro message without Next or with Next and Now.
 
If I recall, this behavior is a result of JTAlert allowing for resizing WSJT-X.
