The new call sign window is fantastic! No more missing callers! The info displayed when you hover the mouse over a call is much easier to read than in the older versions. BUT could it be possible to add an option to display the distances in miles instead of kilometres? If it's already there I haven't been able to find it.

Another suggestion... On the wanted states, grids, etc. pages in the settings perhaps you could add 220, 432 and maybe even 1296?

Okay thank you Laurie

I'm sorry but when I changed that background where you mentioned, everything remained Green.

Restarting JTA the first cycle showed what I changed it to but then following, it went back to green.

Apart from the new badges & borders, all Callsign "license plate" displays get their colors from the old JTAlert Settings window, including non-alerting callsigns.

Here's a test with the most inappropriate color chosen for non-alerts
   

Look under "Alerts -> Miscellaneous Alerts -> No Alert" section of the Settings window.

That HamSpots home page has info on how to get your Callsign changed. Its a manual process unfortunately, so requires an email for the change to be actioned. Don't worry about emailing, I have just now updated your Callsigns, all other account details, including the password remain unchanged.

Like the saying goes, "Garbage In = Garbage Out".

I just ran my validation code against this new Eqsl AG file and got the following...

   

While 271 bad callsigns out of 113K is not a significant number, the causes of those bad callsigns is significant, IMO. It shows a lack of data validation on Callsign registration at the Eqsl end. I considered a bad callsign as any that contain characters that are not a number, letter or "/". The list of bad callsigns showed spaces, underscores, hyphens, brackets, etc.

On the plus size, the 26K non-uploaders help reduce the Callsign database.

It simply takes too long to query QRZ for every US station in a decode
period, evaluate that against a list of valid counties, and make a
decision all in the 2-3 seconds between RX and TX periods. That also
doesn't include the issues of dealing with "non-counties" (independent
cities).

Frankly, I don't think JTAlert could query QRZ.com for as many as 15-20
US stations in the allowable time (or that QRZ.com would allow that).

Mel,

I don't know why the FrameworkCheck.exe is failing on 32 bit systems, I need to spin up a 32bit VM. It may be due to being on Win7. It is compiled as "Any CPU" which means it should run under both 32 and 64 bit systems.

The good news is that despite the check failing, JTAlert has still been installed. The Installer is simply auto-running the FrameworkCheck executable at the end after JTAlert has been installed.

If you have the .NET 5 Desktop Runtime installed, you are good to run JTAlert 2.50.0. Give it a go.

This is a very common problem with Windows. A quick Google search results in hundreds of thousands hits. You appear to be missing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable. Either it has been removed from your PC or its installation is faulty.

JTAlert doesn't have any C++ code so doesn't need this, but the .NET runtime installer likely does, but that is only a guess. Many applications need this, so it is worthwhile getting your system updated into a good state.
