Buddy,

Are you asking about a financial contribution?

While in the past I have declined such offers, in recent times I have warmed to the idea thanks to the economic impacts of Covid-19.

I have not yet publicly listed a mechanism for donations, but have taken some via PayPal.  If your interested, email me off-list.

The messaging code within 2.50.4 and 2.50.2 is identical.
Your switch to 2.50.2 fixing the problem is likely coincidental and occurred at a time when one of the messaging services running on the HamSpots server underwent a restart.

My recommendation is to always use the latest version. Have a look at the Release notes and see what was added with 2.50.3. 2.50.4 was a bug fix release only.

If there is an accurate and maintained list of JA Callsigns and their Prefectures or some reasonably accurate way to programmatically determine the Prefecture perhaps from an official Callsigns database, than we are a lot closer to a JTAlert implementation. Does such a Callsign+Prefecture lists exist? Is there an official JA callsign database publicly provided by their licensing authority?

The current US Callsign+State database used by JTAlert is created based on the public FCC Callsign database and the State of the recorded postal address is used. While the postal address State is not 100% accurate, it is good enough for the purpose. Coming soon is an override mechanism in JTAlert to use the Grid sent in on-air exchanges to provide a more accurate State alerting.

Unless there is a published list of Callsigns and their current RDA then it wont be possible to have RDA Alerting in JTAlert. Performing online lookups on individual callsigns, which is the only method at this time, is not suitable.

The easiest way to test the entire Messaging infrastructure is to send a message to yourself. This will test all parts of the pipeline, Your PC -> Messaging Server -> Your PC.

I have been attempting to get LoTW onboard with supporting RDA districts as part of Russian LoTW certificates which is technical easy to do, but man are they resistant. I just don't understand enough to understand/appreciate why.

+ In early 2018, the ARRL re-assigned all developers working on LoTW to other projects (not one of which has since borne fruit); as a result the only progress being made on LoTW is what Rick K1MU is able to accomplish in TQSL.

WSJTX flags B4 based on the WSJTX (ADIF) log. JTAlert flags B4 based
on the logger JTAlert is configured to use (e.g. DXKeeper, in my case).

In addition, WSJTX will only flag B4 on stations calling CQ.

A HUGE Thanks for all the effort you have put into this latest version.
Took a bit of time to get the prioritizing sorted out and populating the Callsigns window.
Does what I had wanted and a bit more.
I do find differences between what WSJT indicates as worked before and what shows B4 in JTAlert.  Possibly a setting I need to discover.  There are stations showing in WSJT that are not displaying the worked before highlighting, and yet they are clearly worked B4 in Alert.
Again, THANKS.

They may not have their end set up correctly. I use it all the time, works great!

You shouldn't have to check if a station is online using JTAlert 2.50.4 (newest), a star in the CQ decode window indicates this.
