Hi Larry,

I have had reports that JT-Alert works with the Comfort fork of JT65-HF. I have had a brief look at it and can confirm that the critical components necessary for JT-Alert to work remain unchanged from the original JT65-HF. There have been reports of technical issues with Comfort, unrelated to JT-Alert, and my limited testing did uncover some of these. My suggestion is try it and see if it works for you.

I seem to recall there was a discussion, on the JT65-HF Google Group, about Comfort operation and user experiences.

Laurie,

As a follow-up to my last post about the messages popping up when Internet was down. Same thing happend this week and the messages were coming from DXKeeper when it tried to do the data lookups and could not because Internet was down. Thanks for your response on that.

Another question related to this Comfort version of JT65. Should JT-Alert work with that version? What is your position on it, are you supporting it? Reason I ask is that I like some of the new enhancments and would like to see it develop, but I need your apps because you have spoiled me with all the features.

I really did not pay much attention to it until someone posted a review and yesterday I downloaded it to see it first hand. If I read correctly its still a beta release. Just wanted some feedback.

locked WSJT Page on HamSpots.net now has Band Filters for Cluster Spots.

Laurie, VK3AMA <groups04@...>
 

The WSJT page on HamSpots.net now has Band Filters available for the Cluster Spots Display. Bands that are unchecked will not appear in the Cluster Spot Display, allowing more space for other spots.

If the Band Filter check boxes are not visible at the top of the Cluster Spot Display perform a Browser page refresh. This refresh will reload the page along with the new filtering code. This Browser reload only needs to be done once. Note: the "Refresh Now" link only performs a refresh of data, so will not cause the initial load of the filtering code.

Laurie, VK3AMA <groups04@...>
 

Richard,

You have JT65-HF configured to run as admin. The Win7/8/Vista security model prevents lower privileged process (JT-Alert with normal non-elevated privs) from interacting with a higher privileged process (JT65-HF with elevated privs).

If you have elevated the JT65-HF privileges because it is installed in the "Program Files(X86)" directory tree. I suggest installing to a directory outside the "Program Files.." path and not setting "Run as admin".

Once you have JT65-HF running without elevated privileges, JT-Alert will be able to properly interrogate JT65-HF to get the new decodes.

JT-Alert 2.1.2 works fine with JT65-HF. This is the first report of this behaviour with 2.1.2 and is most likely a configuration or operational issue.

Please use the "Settings -> Contact Support" menu to send me your Configuration and Session files for analysis.

I feel sure it is due to a setting I have incorrect - but I can't ascertain what it might be.

Any advice on where I should check?  Or is it time for me to send my configuration logs in?

Hi Larry,

JT-Alert doesn't check for internet availability and doesn't generate popups when the Internet is unavailable. Outgoing spot or log data are sent blind and no attempt is made to confirm their successful transmission.

The next time this happens please provide screen captures showing the offending popup messages.

Laurie,

Thanks for this new logging feature. I have my log displayed on my web page www.w8lig.com and now all the contacts flow right into that graphic. I've been trying to get the folks at DXSuite to do the same. They use Clublog but that does not give the web presentation that hrdlog.net does. So I'm missing any contacts that are not JT65 and must manually upload. I only use hrdlog.net for the web page application I continue to use DXKeeper for my main log.

Now a question, my internet was down the other day and I was working some DX while 15m was open. The alerts/warnings generated because the internet was down got a bit tiresome. Is there some way to address (shut off or limit) these popups when you know the internet is down?

You continue to provide us with new and interesting tools to enhance our JT65 experience. Thanks for all the work.

qsl, Laurie. What about an email?


locked Re: [Ham-Apps] JT Alert question

Laurie, VK3AMA <groups04@...>
 

Hi David,

Providing text (sms) and email alerts are problamatic due to the many different providers and their differing interface requirements.

On the todo list is a new alert indicator (currently we only have the visual and audio types) that executes a user defined command. A batch file, or executable with command line parameters. It would be up to the end-user to determine how to configure and send the alert data to their provider using whatever programs are necessary to accomplish the task. This would be available for all alerts types, but most likely suitable for the rarer alerts like DXCC, CQZone and USState so as not to produce excessive alerts.

I am still considering the best way to implement this and timing on provision is unclear at this time (not imminent).

Using 45w initially, i made a contact with Bobby N4AU in Alabama, who said he was copying me and was only using 1 watt himself. He said he'd call me. After telling him I doubted that i'd be able to copy him at 5w, I was astonished to see his trace on the waterfall. So much so that i dropped my power down to 10w and he was still copying me, then down to 2w and he was still reading my trace, eventually down to only ONE WATT .. that's right,just 1000mW and he still had me at -1.

I'll be using JT9 a lot more from this point on. I should mention that before the QSO with Bobby (N4AU), I had a solid trace on a ZD8 station on St Helena, he did'nt come back to my call tho. I use an homemade 18′ vertical antenna and was very surprised and happy with the success of JT9. Gonna' go now to see it there's any JT9 groups here on Yahoo ;)
