Yes, that's a better/more comprehensive solution.  More work, too.  I'll look forward to it.

Thanks for considering this.

IMO, a better option than clearing the Ignored List at startup is to have an additional temporary (session only) ignored list. This way you can maintain a list of permanently ignored callsigns while have the flexibility of ignoring a callsign for your current JTAlert session.

This temporary ignored list will be available with the next public release of JTAlert.

Hello, Laurie.  Thank you for a very well thought out and well implemented tool.  I looked for a place to make a financial contribution but found nothing?  Is there a place?

If both computers are on the same network then you can run GT on a second PC.
That's what I'm doing here because my laptop only has one HDMI output and I like
a third screen for GT.

I run it all on same PC  have a really cheap 2nd monitor - usually logged into KST but when playing with GT use that.

No idea about using on different PC’s - see link Laurie posted for pretty pictures etc for the setup.

Set WSJT-X to use Multi-cast address (e.g. 239.255.0.0), JTA will
pick that up automatically, set GT to use same address

ThatTMs it - all will just work.
will it work if GridTracker is on a different PC
on the same local network? No room on my FT8
pc screen to add GT !

That’s it - all will just work.

Try System Explorer. Not sure it is what you are looking for but it does show you what is going on with your system and its memory.

Look for something called TrayStatus  -- I think.  That is what it is called after installation on my computer.

I also restart jtalert every time it crashes just decode window.

Thanks for posting the actual error, that helped isolate the problem.

A google search confirms this common problem with Chrome and other VNC type apps.

I have modified the code to capture the error and perform a retry when pasting the decodes callsign onto the clipboard. Check your email (in about an hour) I will send a new JTAlert build to test.

Also, when this happens, there is no need to restart JTAlert. The Decodes window is a standalone executable so you only need to reopen it from JTAlert.
