Dave,

Thank you for your consideration. I wish more fold did the same. However, without being a Authenticated User on eQSL, QSLs with you cannot be counted by the other station toward awards; it is just personal satisfaction for them working you if you are in one of their needed states.

I, too, am an ARRL VE. We had a session a couple of weeks ago that observed social distancing protocols. I did not participate in it, but it went well according to reports.

73,

John, WB9VGJ

Charles Ristorcelli
 

I run JTAlert with Ham Radio Deluxe.

Operation is normal, and automatic logging in HRD Logbook works fine.

However, over the past week the Worked Before feature stopped working.

After I worl a station, the station continues to show up as not worked before.

Any ideas as to what setting I am missing?

WALTDEWS@...
 

I have checked my settings and confirmed I have wanted GRIDS set to Any Band and Any Mode.  I have confirmed the confirmed Grid in both my LOTW account and my DXKeeper Log.  I have run a new scan and rebuild but the grid is still not listed in the Not Needed list.

I am also a bit confused by verbage below the "Enable Wanted Grid Alert" check box.  It says that wanted grids are the last 4 characters.  That would seem to mean that grid DN39np would be logged as 39np, the last 4 but it is normally logged as DN39.



In summary, still having issues with wanted Grids not getting recorded as not needed.  I will track whether or not this seems to be a problem with past QSO's but not current QSO's.

Adding RAM will certainly help. If you don't have a solid state hard drive, adding one will help also. Not much you can do for the 2-core processor unless it's socketed and not soldered to the mainboard (some laptops have socketed CPUs--mine does). If it's a desktop PC you could do a lot for it but it might not be worth your time changing the mainboard, upgrading to a much faster CPU chip, etc.

Thanks Laurie.  I am using DXKeeper and it is logging QSO's correctly as far as I can tell.  I keep an eye on it in real time.  I also think I have all alert options to NOT be band or mode specific, any band, any mode is my goal for now.  I will go back through all of this a see if I can find any conflicting settings.

I noticed there was a newer version just after I posted, which I subsequently download. I currently have 2.16.6 installed.

Last night I noticed the same behavior (20m JT4), not all the calls are passed from the WSJT decode window to JTAlert. In fact, I had amazing luck watching the WSJT decode window (with mouse poised and ready for the newest DX). These calls typically where not passing through through to JTAlert and I was picking up many of the new 'unflagged' DX stations on the first call. 

Just my observations.

I have used n3fjp, while have the log on a cloud.  this updates the cloud log, which each version of n3fjp uses that log file, so they are updated all at the same time

also use gridtracker to send to n3fjp, after logging to log4om.

Yes I was watching the task manager while operating and cut out many behind the scenes stuff and it still periodically had some big usages by Windows itself. Sometimes 100% cpu usage. The machine is a 1 year old Asus Windows 10 machine with 4 gig of ram and a 500 gig hdd. I am planning on upgrading it to its max of 12 gig of ram but that will not change anything for the dual core AMD CPU. Its two levels of cache are just stacking up too much when I run rig control, WSJTX and ACLog.  If I do not run JTAlertx  or log into ACLog no issues. This leaves me manually importing the log from WSJTX to ACLog.  That is not terrible but you loose the opportunity to see the contact's info prior to logging it and you lose the IM capability as well.

There are plenty of download packages containing WSJTX, FLRig and FLDigi so that is not an issue.  I might have to learn how to run the windows version in Wine.

Hi Robert,

have you tried reducing the decode depth in WSJT-X ("Menu->Decode->Normal" or "Menu->Decode->Fast")?

I have been running v2.2.0rc2 the past two days and noticed tonight especially that JTAlert is not passing most of the DX contacts through for selection. I have to manually pick them from WSJT-x decode window.

Not sure which side has the issue.

Laurie,

I know this has been reported before, for previous versions of JTAlert. However, I just noticed it with 2.16.6 Release version. Also using the latest beta version of WSJT-X , 2.2.0-rc2. Occasionally, JTAlert will not display all the decoded calls. In the example in the screen captures, both calls were "B4", but only one of them was displayed in JTAlert. Both calls did show in the Decodes Window for that time slot. In another incident, a needed call didn't show in the call grid, but I was still alerted for it. I am reasonably certain my filters aren't involved, since the calls in question do display at other times.

This is likely due to the changes I made to accommodate the new early FT8 decoding of WSJT-X introduced with rc1/rc2.

I am surprised there were not similar reports with rc1.

I can see in the code how this could happen and have made some timing adjustments for the next release.

Laurie,

Thank you. There might not have been reports, simply because it happened without being noticed. Since it only happens once in a while, it's easy to miss it. The only reason I noticed it is that I got an audio alert, but the call wasn't in the callsign box.

Hi Kevin,
 
To be totally honest, I don’t always have the LoTW filter on.   I only need AK for 80M WAS (hard from MA) so when I am on 80 I operate with no filters.  If I picked up AK on 80, any number of “real” snail mail QSL requests would be worth it!

Yes, the LoTW flag would likely come up when these ops start to use LoTW.  But, I figure 'bag 'em' now & confirm via LoTW when they upload their logs.
