locked JTAlert quits working

Larry Van Horn - Radio (N5FPW)
 

Currently using JTAlert 2.16.5 and WSJT-X 2.1.2 on a Win7 machine. After starting both programs, operations are normal for about two to three minutes then JTAlert no longer displays any contacts. WSJT is still decoding but JTAlert is not displaying those decodes.

Anyone with any thoughts on a fix?

I should change that wording, perhaps to "Trigger the Alert".

When I refer to an "Alert" I mean both the audio announcement and the Callsign coloring.

Yes you can. Most of the Alerts have a B4 override option, including the Wanted Call alert.

except that is not UW5EJX/MM who does that ...
it is F5MYK/MM who does that (thus the F/MM) ...

a very good idea by him to tell us where he is;
need to get the UW5 op to do similar once in a while.

Not true! They are good for the CQ DX Field Award. Many fields are
entirely in water. Working /MM stations is the only way to get them.
I have worked a few such fields from both UW5EJX/MM and F5MYK/MM.

It also looks like "Show only Callsigns generating Alerts" does not
have priority over "Do not show Worked Before (B4) Callsigns" when
both filters are set, which I hoped would solve this problem.

Keep an eye on the Cluster. That is where I have seen him spotted with updated Grid information. Also he periodically Transmits F/MM Grid as a means of advertising his current Grid, that is likely a more reliable source.

Good morning Laurie,

In JTAlert v. 2.16.5 is there the possibility of eliminating some of the bands (not interesting for me) appearing in the window  "Callsign TX/Rx per band"  ?
Thanks

Okay, forget my past.  I have run thru an hour of playing with this and in all but two cases (out of maybe 15) the interface is responsive in that I can turn sound on/off, open settings, etc.  In those two cases it appeared truly KIA.  In those cases, I did not have to kill the process but rather used the "X" in the upper right corner to end it.

Non-responsive...as in restart required.  If it helps, WSJTX is not being run with administrative privilege.  Hope that helps.

HI just an observation which does not affect the program from working properly the title bar  goes from normal to dull , see photo JT1  and then back to normal either on its own or when window of JTAlert is clicked ??  strange  no big deal but when it goes dull I think it stopped working  which is not the case 

Thank you   Jacques F1VEV

Hi Laurie,

Thanks for the detailed explanation. I'll keep this in mind.
JTAlert runs smoothly with wsjt-x 2.2.0-rc1.

Releases 2.16.5 for me isn't so good.  It hangs regularly.  Only once have I had to restart it, but every 5-10 minutes it goes to sleep.

Environment is Flex 6600M, SmartSDR, WSJTX release candidate.  Something amiss.
OM,

When you say "hangs" do you mean the GUI becomes non-responsive or that Callsigns stop being displayed? If the later, that has been reported by a small number of users. In one case the problem was caused by running WSJT-X with elevated privileges (set to run as Administrator). Make sure your not running WSJT-X elevated.

If elevation is not the problem, then I suggest you downgrade JTAlert to 2.16.4 until further testing has been done to try and reproduce the defect after which I will make a new build for those affected to test.
