The default JT-Alert directory path is x:\Program Files (x86)\HamApps\JT-Alert, where x: is the drive you have JT-Alert installed on.

I'm a long time JTA User and have just looked at GridTracker cuz I like the graphic look of the activity.   I just enabled the JTA rebroadcast to a port 1240 which was there from earlier setup with Log4OMv2 which I no longer use.  Put that port in GridTracker and away I go.  I did read a message from GridTracker author Tag, that UDP being sent were only good for info only.  Since I don't yet know what it's all about, I don't care because it works to see the map.  JTA does all the other stuff.   So since I'm running with setup per JTA help for Log4OMv2, which does not includes using UDP 2237....I switched my rebroadcast port from JTA to 2237 which is what GridTracker likes, and put it back in GridTracker to match, and it works fine.   I'm still only interested in the map, but maybe I will get whatever else.  Good luck.  It works. Send me an email if it helps.  73 Herb WB8ASI

I do have a simple CMD file that will backup the config file(s).
It simply copies the file(s) to a backup directory and appends the date & time to the file name.
Thus, one can have very many backups thru time as one chooses.

If interested, AND with Laurie's OK I shall be happy to share this very simple CMD file with instructions to set it up.

Yes, just rename the backup file to config.sqlite after first stopping JTAlert

BTW, the future JTAlertV3 allows for restoring the config from a backup file while JTAlert is running, but that is not possible within the current code.

I had not noticed that you can change the Hot Keys - Thanks.

I was unaware of the default Windows behavior with respect to menus when it automatically used the first character of the menu entry as the accelerator key if one wasn't defined.

With the next release of JTAlert, all top-level menus now have an accelerator character defined.

I would like to see a user defined alert based on decode distance.  This would be useful for VHF/UHF bands.  On 6 meters for example, a decode greater than 1500 miles would alert, on 2 meters, a decode greater than 100 miles, etc.  Obviously this would not be useful on HF.

You can do that already with the User defined alert.

Distance is one of the environment variables set when initiating this alert. You just need to alter the script/batch file your using to only perform its actions if the Alert is under your preferred distance.

I can't reproduce that here. Change priorities are remembered across restarts. Tested changing a single priority and multiple priorities and all were correctly restored after a restart.

Please use the "Help" (or "? ") -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.

All callsign colors are user adjustable, even for non-alerting callsigns. Look under the "Alerts -> Miscellaneous Alerts -> No Alert" section of the Settings window.

I can reduce or strengthen a LOT of other Alerts in JtAlert but not a single one I tried tones-down the popup which arrives after I log a QSO inside WSJTx/JtAlert.

Thanks for the help.

There is no volume slider for the logging confirmation sound. JTAlert is simple initiating a standard Windows sound. The type of sound and volume are controlled by Windows itself.

Bobby/N4AU

Bobby,

Confirmed. This is only happening with the new WSJT-X 2.2.0 -rc1, caused by the pre-release popup window.

JTAlert uses the window handle of the main WSJT window to provide the docking functionality. When WSJT-X changes configs, it causes a restart of WSJT-X causing the window handles for the wsjt.exe process to change. Normally JTAlert will update the window handle after detecting the config change allowing docking to continue to work. With the release candidate, it is presenting a modal pre-release advisory window which is breaking the JTAlert code.

I have a workaround coded for the next JTAlert release, it involves delaying the WSJT-X window handles lookup, executing 15 seconds after the WSJT-X config change was first detected.

I have jtalert listening on 2237 from wsjtx, then I tell it to rebroadcast to 2239 to gridtracker, on a different ip address
so wsjtx must have 2237 ( with the check boxes marked )
in jtalert I have set 2239 under the rebroadcast option, under applications in the setup

if i decide to run on same pc, all I do is change the ip number

also have upd from gridtracker sending spots to a tablet on 2238 with the tablets ip number
