locked JTAlert setup problem

jerry andersson
 

Hi 
I have two QTH's where I'm active 
 
"summerhouse" installed JT Alert 2-50.7- JTDX, on a win10pro - running FB.
 
Home QTH win7pro , 6GB,x64, net5.0 desktop
JT Alert working OK with JTDX, but can't get JT Alert to show anything in Callsign, QSO history, Macros...
 the Messaging window functions !
Tried to revert back to a version pre 2.50 where the macros window functioned - lost that communication too.
Evidently I have managed to do something that I shouldn't. Any suggestions are welcome

Did you try rebooting pc?


locked logging problem

Ed Ireland <ed@...>
 

I recently installed JTAlert 2.50.7 and it no longer logs to DXKeeper, a problem that I have not had through all the upgrades.  Under "Logging" and "DXLab DXKeeper, "Enable DXLab KXKeeper Logging" is checked.  What am I missing?  Should I revert back to version 2.50.6?

Thanks for your help.

What issue? What are you not seeing?

If you're referring to the log fields area of the main JTAlert window is not being displayed, use the "View -> Show Log Fields" menu.

Laurie,

Thank you. That corrected my problem.  I know it must be something that I had not configured correctly.

Thank you for your quick reply.  As you suggested I reviewed the "Accept UDP", this was and always has been checked.  Below I'm including a partial screenshot from this morning of what I and seeing.  The Callsigns #1 panel is clickable but the Caller and possibly the Alerts Only panels are not clickable.

Some very extensive tests were run with Direwolf software looking at
decoding efficiency vs. Soundcard quality. At that time they provided
test files, so you could verify the results yourself.
Direwolf is an AX.25 package. It did not perform any testing with
standard RTTY, or any of the "Joe Taylor modes". I can assure you
that I can copy many more stations with a good high reference 24 bit
ADC and low internal noise receiver than I can with the same receiver
and a "commodity" 16 bit ADC like those found in the common USB dongle,
SignaLink or even the internal 16-bit USB CODEC/ADC in many of the
current transceivers.

They could find no improvement in decode efficiency with higher end sound cards vs. a 5 dollar USB dongle (1200 baud packet)
The testers concluded there was little or nothing to gain spending the extra money, as it did not produce enhanced results.
That was quite a few years ago, maybe things have changed, but I doubt it.

This is only true when speaking about 16bit CODECs running off a 3.3
or 5V supply.  If the sound card has a 24 bit ADC with a higher
voltage reference you can obtain several dB more dynamic range if
the receiver and sound card preamp are well designed (low noise).
This does rule out most of the JA rigs and commodity sound cards but
saying the 24 bit sound cards are of no value is certainly an over-
simplification.

I think it's great how JTAlert keeps track of heard callsigns in the Caller panel.  My question is why aren't these callsigns clickable?  I end up having to scroll up through the RX Frequency window of JTDX to find them.  Am I missing some configuration that would allow that?

JTAlert  2.50.7, JTDX v2.2.0-rd155

All callsigns are clickable. There is no difference between the different display panels of the window. JTAlert makes no distinction, all displayed callsigns have the same back-end code for the click-processing.

I see you're running JTDX, very likely you have the "Accept UDP Reply messages" settings set to a subset of the decodes, perhaps CQ only decodes.

"Caller" decodes are never classed as CQ decodes. Check your JTDX settings.

Wrong window. That's the Callsigns window. The Decodes window, which is old pre-2.50.x series code does not have the gear icon.

Can you consider add this feature ? Or maybe I miss something and this is already implemented ?
73! Mek sq3rx

Mek,

A worthwhile change to keep the Decodes window functionality inline with the other JTAlert windows.

The Decodes window is old code, while the new 2.50.x introduced windows are new code that all support the "On Top" functionality.

I have modified the Decodes window to support an "On Top" setting.
Check your email, I have sent a new build for you to test.
