I've been shrinking the band activity columns that I don't use, thus it's about half the size for just FT4&8. Would also like to cancel out the bands I can't use.

Dennis,

It is on the todo list, added by myself when I first coded the F4 support as I knew the user request would be coming ;-)

Until it is implemented, I suggest you don't have the Band Activity window open and rely on a periodic mouse-hover over the Band Activity status to temporarily show the popup window.

Vladimir,

Very likely that for the scans affected your adif log file doesn't contain the required information. Does it contain the <CONT> and <PFX> fields?

Please send me direct (not via this group) a copy of your adif file.

Dave,

Sounds like the shortcut your using to start JTAlert is referencing an incorrect path or file. Is this a user-created shortcut or one automatically created during the JTAlert install? If the later, than very likely you virus protection may have removed the JTAlert.exe file.

Please post an image of the offending error window (pse don't post your entire desktop, just the error window is needed).

While possible, coloring is unlikely to be implemented. An alternative is to use the Alternate Build of JTAlert which does away with this abbreviation,  instead using plain text, "(Updates)".

Subject: [HamApps] Sudden burst in JT9 activity. Why?
 
I have noticed over the last 2 days, a significant increase in JT9 activity as shown in the JTAlert Band Activity popup and on HamSpots and PSKReporter. Is there a JT9 specific contest on at the moment?

As I type this message 19:30 utc, the daily peak in PSKReporter activity, the top 3 reported modes (last 2 hours) on PSKReporter are FT8, FT4, JT9.
   

Does anyone know the reason for the sudden increase?

Barry,

Looks like the file holding version information on the current installed version did not get updated during the update.

Simply rerunning the JTAlert setup again should fix it, there is no need to uninstall first, the setup can be run multiple times without any ill effect.

In addition to the work around I recently posted I have used this one and it works just fine.  Somewhat of a chore if you have a great number of confirmed LOTW QSOs.  Hopefully. the HRD team will get their app fixed.

GL de Barry

For now the easy work around to show match(verified) in HRD is two steps:

1) You must go into the Logbook, "Tools", "Configure", "Modes" and add Mode=FT4 and ADIF=FT4 for your contacts to be shown as FT4 in LOTW ... (Once the FT4 contacts are matched in LOTW, they are confirmed contacts, but will not show in HRD LOTW downloads and subsequently in a JTA scan)

Note Added: Under 'logging' in JTA do not select "Log FT4 as ADIF 3.1.0 Compliant Mode=MFSK, Submode=FT4 HRD is not yet ADIF 3.1.0 Compliant ...

2) The updating of HRD for confirmations has to be done manually (a work around) ---- From the shown tabs in the of ALE window (Show:Tabs, LOTW) select LOTW, Under 'Rcvd.' select 'Verified(Match)' for each verified contact.

Please let me explain that item 1 was the only change I made in HRD5.0

I'm fairly sure you should NOT change anything in TQSL .. it is properly setup for FT4 and will store FT4 QSOs on LoTW.     The latest TQSL configuration file has the correct mode conversion for uploads to LOTW.

 

The issue is HRD, and the fact that LoTW exports in the latest ADIF specification, which HRD has not implemented even though Submodes have been part of the ADIF specification for the past six years.    

Again, do not add any mode conversion to LoTW, if and when HRD gets fixed, you may forget that that mode conversion is there, and cause other issues.  It will also cause issues if other MFSK mode protocols are created, and you forget to remove that 'MFSK -> FT4" conversion.
