Phil,

No, there is no way.

The spot data is automatically retrieved. There is no limiting of the age of the spots, all spots within the database (4 to 5 days worth) are available for display, most recent first up to a maximum display of 50 spots.

I'll add to the enhancement list. Implementation will be low-priority.

Hello Laurie and the group,

There are times, such as when I have not been active for a while, that it would be nice to clear these listings and see only current listings in the columns.

Just an idea....

Note for those using Commander: *DO NOT* use PTT via CAT through
Commander. *IT WILL CRASH* and leave the rig hang in transmit.
Instead use RTS switching on a separate serial port (hardware PTT).

This is a repost as requested by JT
Joe Taylor asked for a cross post. I've been testing ver 1.1 for about a week. Its ability to monitor both JT65 and JT9 simultaneously, and to jump between modes with nothing but a mouse click, is very powerful. If you never tried JT9 here's a great way to compare it with JT65. If you're already using JT65 and JT9 now you won't have to wonder which is best on any particular day and time.

Here's Joe's post:

To: Users and potential users of WSJT-X
From: Joe Taylor, K1JT

I invite you to test-drive version 1.1 of WSJT-X. This version of the
program is "bi-lingual" -- it transmits and receives both JT9 and JT65
signals, switching between modes automatically as needed. The maximum
displayed bandwidth has been increased from 1 to 5 kHz. If your
receiver has an upper-sideband filter at least 4 kHz wide, on most bands
you can have all the JT65 *and* all the JT9 activity on screen at once,
available for making QSOs.

Other improvements since v1.0, r3323 include the following:

1. CAT control via DxLab Commander.
2. Improved GUI appearance, especially on Linux and OS X.
3. Compilable with Qt5 as well as Qt4.
4. Fixed occasional program crashes caused by receiving a message in the
form "call1 call2" (with no grid, report, etc.).
5. Improved handling of audio device selection in Linux.
6. Log QSO frequency, instead of dial frequency only.
7. Added Tx Power to ADIF log information, with option to retain between
QSOs.
8. Added option to retain between QSOs the Power and Comments fields for
ADIF and wsjtx logs.
9. Added optional antenna description for PSK Reporter.
10 Fixed a bug in handling of logged grid locator when none was
available on the double-clicked line.
11. Fixed a bug that caused small differences in the lengths of
transmitted symbols.
12. Tx message (highlighted in yellow) now includes a mode flag and the
audio frequency.
13. Added a spinner control for Rx Freq.
14. New on-screen button "Lock Tx=Rx" locks Tx and Rx frequencies together.
15. Allow COM port number greater than 9 (Windows only).
16. Don't clear DxGrid when user double-clicks on a message with no
grid, if the message's Tx call is same as DxCall.
17. Double-click on yellow Tx message sets frequency, but does nothing else.
18. Rationalized the logic of the CAT control indicator button. Now
colored grey/green/orange/red -- see User's Guide.


Even if you are already familiar with version 1.0, you should first read
the new online WSJT-X User's Guide:
http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSJT-X_Users_Guide_v1.1.pdf

You can download the Windows installation package from
http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSJTX_110r3459.exe

The program also runs well under Linux and OS X, but presently on these
platforms you must compile it yourself.

In many ways this release has been "cleaned up" and is more mature than
version 1.0. But with the JT65 capabilities it also contains a lot of
new code. Please send us bug reports and any suggestions for improvement.

A new version of JT-Alert (by VK3AMA) is in the works. At present your
JT9 activity will be handled as before -- but not your JT65 activity
with WSJT-X.

Finally: This is a group effort. My warmest thanks to AC6SL, G4KLA,
PY2SDR, and VK4BDJ (members of the WSJT Development Team), and to DJ0OT,
G4ILO, K0KC, K3WYC, NH7SR, W4TV, and VK3ACF, who been testing various
alpha versions of WSJT-X v1.1. Your input is greatly appreciated!

I was working a station the other day and I'd clicked on the drop down "OK" to log the contact and it retreated.  Seconds later it dropped down again..  Glanced at it and it was a personalized text msg
thanking me (specifically) for the contact.  Could not figure out how in the world the guy did it. 
Until now...  Thanks.  Now I too will use that feature!

Just a few of points on the Text Message feature.

  * This was a "proof of concept" feature that accidentally got released. So I
    chose to leave it in-place. It is not complete and requires documentation.

  * This is not real-time and if there is a waiting message it is collected

    Activity data from HamSpots. If you don't have the Band Activity display
    enabled, then you will never get a text message.

  * This is not a chat feature as only one message will be received per minute.

  * Messages are sent blind, there is no attempt to confirm a successful delivery.

  * If 2 or more users send a text message to the same Callsign in the current
    minute, only the newest message will be sent to the target Callsign as the

Hi Laurie,

first of all thanks for your job and the excellent software you have been developing and making them available for us.

Second, thanks for our QSO on 30 mts the other day, it was amazing since for several years I was not able to hear/work VK here from PY due the poor cndx. Also nice to see the pop-up message from JT-Alert saying I just have worked the man hihi.

It would be great to see JT-Alert working with JT-65 HB9HQX version!
I have exchanged some emails with Beat, HB9HQX and he is very open and accepts to implement our suggestions in his project, so if some features are duplicated I am sure this could be resolved.

Thanks again
