Turn off "Clear Callsigns display after logging" in the JTAlert settings window, Logging section. You will need to scroll the "Logging Options" to bring the setting into view.

Likely you have ACLog set to work with JTDX/WSJT-X directly. Per your image, you're using unicast UDP (127.0.0.1) on port 2237 and it is likely that ACLog has taken exclusive control of the port preventing JTAlert from receiving UDP data from JTDX/WSJT-X. You can confirm this by stopping ACLog then restarting JTAlert, it should start reporting the Band and Mode in the titlebar and displaying decoded Callsings.

ACLog supports multicast comms with JTDX/WSJT-X. Switch JTDX/WSJT-X to using multicast and change ACLog accordingly. Use the JTAlert "Help -> WSJT-X UDP Setup" menu to bring up the help file. Follow the simple 4 seep instructions provided.

David, I am not sure either, but there are no filters turned on and it is not decoding or passing along log info to ACL.  Have never had this problem before.

I am going to give a detailed version as I understand it to keep Jim Cooper happy.

The current computer I am using is brand new.  Has a fresh install of jtdx with the pertinent.  jtdx seems to be working just fine.  It logs to itself, so contacts are updated in the *.adif file.  It seems that jtalert is not decoding at all and as a result is not logging to ACL.
After the clean install I did copy the files per the help file to the new computer, hoping to keep my old databases.  This has provided no luck either.

So Mr. Cooper, I am no longer on a Mountain top in Colorado asking for help.  In the previous message I sent a photo of the jtdx udp setup.  I do believe it to be correct.

Still at wits end.

I'm not sure why the title bar isn't showing which band you're on but it looks like you have some filter/filters enabled which may be blocking any decodes showing in the Callsign window. Click Alerts from the menu and then check the Filters menu to see what filters you have enabled.

Since your title bar shows "???m", the most likely issue is that
UDP communication is not working between JTDX and JTAlert.

1) Did you start JTAlert with the right shortcut?

2) Are either JTDX or JTAlert running with elevated permissions
("run as administrator")? If so, *DO NOT* run as administrator.

3) See "Help -> WSJTX UDP Setup" in JTAlert and follow those
instructions.

4) Are any other programs running that use UDP connections -
logging software, etc.?

I agree,
JTAlert is a perfect tool for digital communication when paired with WSJT-X correctly.
There are many reasons why things can go wrong if the user does not set it up correctly by following the instructions. I have had the occasional issue but this is down to MY error and not the software which is a damn sight more stable than many software offerings.

Perhaps digital is too complicated for the OP, he is still on AOL which I thought was only viable on steam powered computers these days.

as has been said here so many times, even
just recently (did you read any of the mail
archive here to see if your problems were
discussed?) ... a message like yours is like
you went on the radio and said
"I'm lost somewhere west of the Rocky Mtns. ...
can you please help me get home?"

In other words, you told us things are not
working ... "doctor, I don't feel well .. what's
wrong?" what would your doctor do?

You told us NOTHING about symptoms or
what's not working. Take a deep breath, sit
back, and write another email with DETAILS
and lots of folks here will try to help.

Based on the original author’s name in the email (AOL/COMPUSERV) I take it he is elderly and not well versed in computers. Maybe digital modes are not his best choice of operation then.

JTAlert works fine here and Laurie has done fantastic work refining the program over the years.

If people would first try to read the manual and FAQ, them post to the list if they still have an issue after trying to solve it themselves, they could be enjoying the program. 

You can’t please everyone.

LOL, it is precisely "prime time" when it works the best!  When I have 40-60 decodes per 15 second epoch, JTAlert is the ONLY thing that can keep it all straight!

I get it- that was a message written out of frustration- I've written them myself (mostly to Microsoft).  But it is hardly indicative of the JTAlert community's experience with this software.  Of course there are small bugs- no software is perfect.  But Laurie and the testing team have been great addressing them and been very responsive to the community when they get the proper information regarding a problem.

Laurie,

tnx for your kind words and the acknowledgement that you received the magazine.

As version 2 of JTAlert offers remarkable innovations it was my pleasure to write an update to the article that described the program in November 2020. The update was in the June 2021 edition.

Regarding further postings regarding these reviews:
PDF copies of articles from the the magazine FUNKAMATEUR are usually available here:

What a surprise when I visited my local post office today, after being stuck at home the last 3 weeks under a Covid lockdown imposed on a few million of us here in Melbourne VK.

Two issues of QEX Japan with very lengthy 10 page reviews of JTAlert in both issues. Also a new issue of Funk Amateur with a second article about JTAlert.

While, I cannot read Japanese or German I can tell that a lot of effort was put into the articles.

I want to thank Masa JR1AQN and Willi DJ6JZ for their efforts in writing the JTAlert reviews and getting them published.

Thanks very much guys!

Gerald, I too would like to thank you for your service to our country.  Men and women who have served are appreciated much more than they know.

I don't understand your statement.  It sounds like it is written out of frustration.  How long have you been using JTAlert?  No program is perfect.  I have used JTAlert on a daily basis for over 4 years now, and have never had any serious problems.  What few problems I've had, Laurie has addressed quickly and efficiently.  I have FAR more trouble with Windows than any program I use running under it.  And I paid a HE77 of a lot more for Windows!  I wish you would post some of the issues you are having.  I'm betting between Laurie and the users on this forum, your problems can be solved in very short order.  99% of the problems I've had with JTAlert, or WSJT-X for that matter, have been resolved with a simple restart of Windows.  Give Laurie and the group a chance to help you solve the issues you are having.  It's a great program, one I could not get by without.  WSJT-X alone is a pain to use and keep track of what is going on.

locked Re: JTAlert useful to reply to CQ but not alerts

neil_zampella
 

Yes, that's understood - TX enable does not get set and WSJT-X does not answer as he was not calling CQ.  However, shouldn't the WSJT-X DX Call and receive frequency still shift to the station when selected?  When I select it nothing happens.  I had the alert for new DXCC set which is why the alert triggered -  I have never worked that country.

No ... again, there is nothing in the WSJT-X UDP interface that does that.    You can enter the callsign in the WSJT-X DX Call box and start to call them.

 

I also see a similar issue, when someone calls me when I didn't call  CQ.  I see an alert due to the call to me, however  I can't select the station in JTAlert to set receive freq and DX Call field. Seems to be same scenario - alert that is not calling CQ.  Please let me know if this is working as expected.

If you are getting called, and you don't have Call 1st and AUTOSEQ checked, you have to select them in WSJT-X and try to work manually.   Again, there is no UDP interface that will do that.for you.   The controlling program is WSJT-X, not JTAlert.
