Subject: [HamApps] The JTAlert test team is looking for some additional members.

 

I am looking for some additional members to participate in JTAlert testing.

My expectation is that members of this group are computer savvy, are frequent users of WSJT-X and its modes, are comfortable with using JTAlert and Windows and don't need hand-holding when it comes to using Windows File Explorer and file management, installing and uninstalling applications.

The group message volume is very small, sometimes going a week without a posting, but Members are encouraged to provide feedback on any new JTAlert build posted for testing.

The main purpose of the Testing group is to provide members with early access to JTAlert releases and interim builds and to use these releases as part of their normal Digital activity to shake out any bugs or behavioral problems that may have crept in during coding and to test any new features. I don't expect members to exercise all functions of JTAlert with every build released.

Users of WSJT-X/JTDX, and one of the major loggers supported by JTAlert, ADIF, DXKeeper, ACLog, Log4OM or HRD, are needed.

Note: Users who become members of the Test team but don't contribute to any of the online discussion for an extended period (3 months) will automatically be removed from the Team.

If your interested, please email me direct (vk3ama.ham.apps [at] gmail.com) with a brief outline of your operating environment, Windows version, Logger used, if using WSJT-X or JTDX, if using multiple JTAlert instances, how long using JTAlert, etc.

Hello Laurie, I hope all is well up there.   I have had a request from a mate who is not a forum member to ask for this, and I also think its might be handy.

FT8 is soooooo popular now that jtalert cannot at times, display all of the decoded calls that are on air, so, would it be possible to increase the current maximum number of callsign lines from the present 4 and also increase the maximum 'per line' from the current 9 ?????

 

regards

Hi

 

You could try updating to the latest WSJT-X (vers 2.2.2) and see if your troubles magically disappear.

 

Just my 2c 😊

 

Cheers

Unchecking "Show DXCC, grid, etc" doesn't change anything.
WSJT-X 2,1.0
JTAlert 2.16.13
Win 7

If I double-click on a CQ in WSJT-X it the Tx 1 field in WSJT-X is populated and transmission begins.

If I double-click on a CQ in JTAlert, nothing happens.

I see numerous posts on this topic, but no solutions. Unchecking "Color Band Activity" had no effect.
I have the same problem.
Double-clicking in the WSJT-X window works as expected.

Tested on Win 7.

Your post lacked specifics. Here's my take. I've used HRD since 2014. I've found it to be solid and the couple of times I have needed support, the support provided was excellent. I use a pristine ham radio-only PC and Windows updates have never been a problem. And lastly, Laurie is not a 'she'.

Just me 2 cents.

Hi Laurie and I'm willing to help however I can.

I run windows 10 Pro with the DXLab suite and been using JTAlert since the beginning of time. I have over 45000 qso's logged with the mode and use wsjt-x.

locked Correct Multicast UDP IP Range for WSJT-X/JTDX supported by JTAlert. #FIX

HamApps Support (VK3AMA)
 

In previous release notes the quoted JTAlert supported UDP Multicast IP range for WSJT-X was incorrect.

The correct range supported by JTAlert is 239.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255

The previously suggested IP of 239.255.0.0 falls within this range and is still a valid choice.

WSJT-X/JTDX users are encouraged to convert from using the unicast 127.0.0.1 default to using a multicast address for the UDP Server settings in WSJT-X/JTDX. Nothing needs to be changed in JTAlert, it automatically adjusts per your WSJT-X/JTDX settings.

locked JTAlert 2.16.13 is available #Announcement #NewRelease

HamApps Support (VK3AMA)
 

The latest JTAlert version 2.16.13 is now available @ https://hamapps.com/JTAlert/

This release has the long-requested ability to automatically set an Alert entity (eg. grid, prefix, dxcc, etc) to no longer needed after logging a QSO. Suitable for users who don't require QSL confirmations and are happy to simply have the entity worked.

de Laurie VK3AMA

Release Notes.

2.16.13 (29-Aug-2020)

  *** Includes Callsign database file version 2020-08-29 (2020-Aug-29)

  New Features:

    - Auto Clear Alert Triggers: New "Auto clear triggered Alert entity after
       logging" option available for each of the 8 Wanted Alert types. When set
       this option will automatically clear an Alert entity (eg. Grid) after
       logging a QSO, thus avoiding the need to run a "Rebuild Alert Database"
       operation to remove "worked only" entities. Note: This is only suitable
       for users who don't require any form of QSL confirmation (as read from
       their log during a Rebuild operation) before an Entity is considered no
       longer needed.
       See the "Options" section of each of the "Wanted Alerts" in the Settings.

    - Alert Database Rebuild: New "Ignore QSOs before this date" option for each
       of the 8 Wanted Alert types (Dxcc, State, Grid, etc). Setting this option
       will instruct the rebuild log scanning to exclude (ignore) QSOs in your
       log before the specified date.
       See the "Rebuild Alert Database" section of the Settings window.

  Changes:

    - Country Names: Several of the country names displayed below the Callsigns
       in the main JTAlert window have been changed to reduce the truncation of
       longer names, improving readability, and to remove the ambiguity when
       similarly named countries are truncated.

    - Logging Success Popop: The display time for this popup is increased to 10
       seconds (default is 5 seconds) if one or more of the Wanted Alerts is set
       to have their "Needed" settings automatically adjusted when logging a QSO
       as per the "Auto clear triggered Alert entity after logging" new feature.
       The increase display time is to provide sufficient time to review what
       changes have been automatically applied to the internal Alert Database.
