With JTAlert 2.50.1 the "Online" star symbol (not badge) is turned off for the Callers display as the space is taken up by the delete icon (cross). The symbol is still visible in the main display area. So there is no setting to make that visible in the Callers display.

However, with the upcoming JTAlert 2.50.2 release there have been a number of significant changes to the Callsigns window. One of those changes is that the "Online" symbol is visible in the Callers display area. Also the symbol used is user-settable (from a pre-defined list of 19 symbols).

Multicast is covered in the JTAlert help file, "WSJT-X UDP Setup" topic.

What is the error message? I don't see any error in your posted image.

I should have clarified my question. I use the grid alarm in JTA now. Just wish it would only look at those 488 grids not every grid. Or make it so I can pick and choose which 6m/2m grids I am looking for. Maybe 2 Grid tabs one for All Grids and one for just for Fred Fish grids so alarms are more meaningful.
I can send you the list of 488 grids if that would help.

Simple, turn off the docking to WSJT-X. With it enabled, whenever WSJT-X is brought forward of other windows it is dragging the old JTAlert window along as well.

Docking can be turned off via the "View" menu, topmost entry.

I don't know. There is nothing in JTAlert that triggers after 15 minutes, the maintenance (file cleanup), update check and system operating condition snapshot all occur at JTAlert startup and then every 60 minutes.

Do you experience the same issue with WSJT-X 2.4.0 ?

I noticed on the Decodes Window that new states, grids, zones, prefixes are highlighted but new countries are not. Perhaps this can be added at some point, I know you are in a rewrite.

I find it useful to look at a column and easily ID the alerts.

Paul, AC9O

You have 2 options.
  1. Relocate the Dxcc column (after you make it visible) to next to the CountryName column so you can easily see the Country name of DXCC Alerted decodes.
  2. Wait for the JTAlert 2.50.2 release.

Your image shows that you don't have the DXCC column visible, why is that? Having the DXCC column visible will help identify Dxcc alerts.

That will not work. JTAlert only works with the Primary UDP Serer settings. JTAlert will never use the secondary Server settings of JTDX.

The easiest solution is to set JTDX and GridTracker to use a Multicast UDP. That will allow JTAlert and GridTracker to run concurrently.

There is no need to use unicast UDP as you currently are.

Is your NEW COUNTRY alert the HIGHEST

JTAlert will used WSJT-X's port on 2237.

Then set up JTAlert to forward to GridTracker on a different port...for example 2334 (the default) and set GridTracker to Receive UPD Messages on port 2334.

You need to set up multicast and turn off the 2nd UDP server.

It's in JTAlert's Help -- search for multicast.
