Only issue I've seen is Directed CQ isn’t available under Settings menu.  It is accessible under mF2 menu.  Works great thank you!

A new JTAlert beta build is available for testing. This build has a new "Directed CQ" Alert.
If your interested in testing the installers can be found here...

64bit (x64)  https://dnl.HamApps.com/Beta/JTAlert.2.50.2.build.0002.Beta.Install.X64.exe
32bit (x86)  https://dnl.HamApps.com/Beta/JTAlert.2.50.2.build.0002.Beta.Install.X86.exe

Note: All JTAlert Betas have an inbuilt expiry date. They cease to function 56 days after their creation date. You can check when it will expire via the Help -> About" menu of the main JTAlert window.

   

To use the new "Directed CQ" Alert, you need to enter one or more direction words into the word list under the "Alerts -> Directed CQ" section of the main Settings window, like SOTA, POTA, COTA, TEST, VK, etc. Words are limited to 1 to 4 alpha characters only, per the FT8/4 protocol.

The Decodes window will also highlight the word under the CQ column if the decode generated a Directed CQ Alert.

I don't normally make Beta builds publicly available, please let me know if this works for you

I've used WSJT-X and JT Alert since the beginning.  However, I'm setting up a laptop for POTA and cannot get JTAlert to communicate with the WSJT-X process.
I get this error...... and I'm not sure what it means.

Remember, like VUCC, FFMA is limited to a to a 200 km (124 mi)
diameter (100 km / 62 mi) circle.  If any of your QTHs fall
outside that circle you will need to deselect them for FFMA
consideration.

And if the Cog is not visible, make the window active by clicking it then use the F2 key. The F2 key is universal across all JTAlert windows for opening the Settings window or Options popups.

So its only one of the JTAlert windows is that correct?
Is it the Decodes Window, it is the only one that has File and View menu entries?

I just repeated testing, using all 3 modes of the Magnifier, The full screen, the docked view and the floating magnifying view. All worked correctly with JTAlert.

Are you perhaps using an old version of JTAlert? I did all my testing with the latest release, 2.50.2

I used the Microsoft Magnifier instructions posted here...

It would appear that the main JTAlert window is off-scree, a common Windows problem. Do a Google Search  on "Recover off-screen Window" will bring up many thousands of hits for this common problem. Once you get that window back to your main screen you will be able to access its Settings widow.

Likely JTAlert is displaying "Filtered" in its title-bar, is that the case? If so, than alter your Continent Filter settings under the "Alerts -> Filters -> Show Continent..." menu.

Setup multiple configurations in WSJT-X, one for each Rig. There is nothing you need to do in JTAlert. When you want to change Rig, switch to that configuration in WSJT-X. JTAlert will automatically detect any changes in WSJT-X so there is no need to restart JTAlert.

This is a problem within Windows itself. It would appear that something is broken within the Database Access components of Windows. I suggest you talk with Microsoft Support to get this resolved.

FWIW, in the 10+ years that JTAlert has been available, supporting many Windows versions, this is the first time I have received a report of a MSDATL3 error. Something is broken in Windows that is affecting the JTAlert database code.

Thank you

Version number of the software would help.

Since you mentioned HRD, I expect it is V6.something.

A number of HRD 6 users have experienced this type of problem. The exact cause is unknown, but it is related to using an MSAccess log in HRD. The usual fix is to perform an export of your current log, create a new Log in HRD and import the previous export, then switch JTAlert to using that new Log. In a very small number of cases, creating a new HRD MSAccess log didn't correct the behavior, but upgrading to using a MariaDB log did. HRD themselves recommend using MariaDB rather than MSAccess type logs.
