JTAlert can not affect the "Enable Tx" setting in WSJT-X. There is no facility to perform that action in the WSJT-X UDP interface which JTAlert uses exclusively to interact with WSJT-X.

If "Enable Tx" is becoming unchecked, it is likely to how you're using WSJT-X. You're best to ask the WSJT-X people why "Enable Tx" is becoming unchecked.

Just a thought here. It is possible that the TX watchdog timer in WSJT-X had expired just at the time that the other station answered the CQ. Just one possibility.

Thank you for clarifying Laurie. I was running HRD in conjunction with WSJT-X and JTAlert before, so the logbook was open. No problem, all I must do is run the logbook on its own. It complains about not having the HRD server running but I can ignore that.

I haven’t had this problem before but I do now for some reason. I checked all the parameters and they are correct according to a previous post regarding the matter. I’m guessing the fix is something easy but I can’t find it.

 

I don’t have the error message so don’t ask for it. The version of the HRD Logbook is the current 6.7.0.323.


HRDLogbook needs to be running. This is highlighted in the Help file. It has always been the case, it is not new.

Logging is done via the TCP interface of HRDLogbook, if HRDLogbook is not running there is nothing listening on the TCP port to accept the logging instruction. The only exception is with HRD5 & HRD6.2 (and earlier) where logging is done via direct writes to the log database file as there is no TCP interface available with those very old versions.

locked Bug report

Steve Weeks AA8SW
 

The LoTW Last Upload Filtering function is not working properly.  I have it set at 1 year with the flag turned on.

Today the software flagged N1UL as an LoTW member, which should have meant that he had uploaded within the last year.  However, when I called him, AC Log showed that his last upload was in 2015.  Of course I had to finish the contact to avoid being rude, even though it is unlikely that he will ever confirm so it was probably wasted time and QRM.  Later I went to the LoTW website to confirm that AC Log was correct and the last upload by that callsign was in fact in 2015.  His QRZ page says that he does not use LoTW.

I have noticed the same thing in prior versions of the software but decided to report it this time since it was not fixed in 2.50 -- which is otherwise great.  Thank you for the considerable effort that must have been needed to make those major changes.

Hi Laurie,

Last night I just installed JTAlert 2.50.0 but didn't actually try it, as I had been out at our club, and consumed a glass (or two!) of a nice Merlot, so I didn't want to have to think too much, so I left it.
Got up this morning, itching to see if it all worked....

And YES, everything seems to work just fine! I even went on 30m to ensure contacts were logged OK, and they were. Made a few QSO's with the new version, all EU, with reports around the -09 to -12 region, which were logged into DXKeeper just fine. Just as I was about to close JTAlert, I was called by a VK3 with a report of +12!!!

So, a big thankyou to you for this new version....

I cannot work out why FrameworkCheck was telling me .NET5 was not installed, but hey ho, some things are sent to confuse us!

Very best 73

While not offering a single "Dark Mode" setting, the next release has color customization of the major UI elements of each of the new 2.50.0 windows.

Here's a sample of my Callsigns window.

JTAlert resends all received UDP packets from WSJT-X regardless of their content or type. JTAlert doesn't examine the content of the UDP packet, it simply resends whatever is received.

Are you saying that your grid locator is not being received by a 3rd party app that is listening to the JTAlert resent data? If so, than WSJT-X must not be sending it.

Thanks Laurie.  That seems to have done the trick.  I had been using it with the ‘/f’ that apparently didn’t wait, but did kill it.  Without the ‘/f’ seems better.

You can use taskkill /im JTAlert.exe to send a termination signal. It will trigger a WM_CLOSE to windows message queue.

Works for me.

Hello again....

OK, curiosity got the better of me, and so I am in the shack, and I ran the installer for JTAlert 2.50.0 and it actually ran without any issues, and I got the following message on completion.



That makes me think that the issue is with SDR#, but it did make me hold off even trying it.
When you suggested trying it anyway, I thought why not, and I don't think I am surprised that it ran, given your previous message.

I am not sure why SDR# won't run though, but I will find another way,

Thanks for all your support Laurie,
