Do you have the JTalert DECODES window open?
If so, what grid does it show there for the /MM ?

That is most likely what JTalert will send for the log ...
if it is EMPTY, then that might explain why an old
grid is being found and used.

From what I have seen operating, most /MM FT8 stations
do not send their current grid square very often, if at all.

Just some thoughts ...

Mark ... you're doing that the HARD WAY!!

I also use the QRZ logbook and LotW ... but
I use JTalert to upload my QSOs as they are
made DIRECTLY to QRZ.com (you do need to

simple and super easy.

Then at the end of the day, three mouse clicks

In the past, when I completed an FT8 QSO with a /MM maritime mobile station in a new water grid, the grid in the WSJT-X "DX Grid" field was entered in the llog box which opened after the 73 message was received. The grid along with the rest of the QSO data was passed through JTAlert to DX Keeper and logged. However, I have noticed that after a QSO is logged, the Grid logged in DX Keeper for that QSO is a grid from an older QSO. I can't seem to find any option or checkbox in either WSJT-X, JT Alert or DX Keeper which might be related to correcting this problem.
 
I wrote to DX Lab Suite and Dave, AA6YQ suggested doing some diagnostics. I sent him the error log file with the results. It indicated that the incorrect grid was being sent to DX Keeper and not the grid that was in the WSJT-X log box. I checked the wsjtx.log file and it had the correct grid that was in the WSJT-X log box which came up after the QSO.
 
If I understand it correctly, the QSO data is passed from WSJT-X through JT Alert to the DX Keeper log. If that is the case, is the incorrect grid being introduced by JTAlert?

Hi Laurie,
1. I've only just returned to the hobby and I am still in the process of setting things up so the only logging that I'm doing is in WSJT-X and then up loading that .ADI file to QRZ.COM.
I followed the procedure in JTAlert for the initial once only import of the WSJT-X .ADI file into JTAlert. JTAlert seems to know about all my worked B4 contacts as I make them, they just aren't identified ONLY in the "Show QSO's History Popup". All my worked B4 stations have a grey background in WSJT-X and a grey box in JTAlert as I make them. The worked B4 identification is working perfectly to identify all stations as worked before, it's just the details of the previous conversations aren't included in the "Show QSO's History Popup".
2.With the setup described above, do I need to set up an additional log file somewhere?
3. I turned off Malwarebytes and Norton and it made no difference.
4. I can confirm that there are two 3D2USU entries in the WSJT-X .ADI log. The logging of new contacts into JTAlet seems to be working fine since the do get a grey background. This problem is happening with all my worked B4 contacts.
Thanks for your comments.
Cheers, Mark VK3BU

Roger,

I would fix this if I could isolate the cause. Unfortunately, the error line numbers are typically grossly inaccurate.

Does this occur during very busy band periods?

Check your email, I have sent you a link to the latest JTAlert beta build please give it a try and let me know if it appears to resolve the issue.

You're missing most of the WSJT-X diagnostic information included in the JTAlert "Help -> About".

Is this loss of comms with WSJT-X a recent problem or has it always done this? If recent, what software changes/updates have you made recently?

If you haven't done so already, a Windows Restart is worth a try especially if changed behavior has only just occurred.

I note that you're using unicast UDP for the WSJT-X UDP Server settings. Perhaps some other application is taking exclusive control of the UDP port and locking JTAlert out of the UDP comms.  I suggest setting WSJT-X to use Multicast UDP and setting any other applications that interoperate with WSJTX, like JTAlert, to use multicast UDP. See the JTAlert Help file "WSJT-X UDP Setup" topic, it has simple instructions for setting up multicast UDP.

Are you running another logging program or something like GridTracker
that also requires UDP support from WSJTX?

Since you are not using multicast UDP, the "third program" may be
preventing JTAlert access to the UDP broadcasts from WSJTX.

There can be a number of reasons why the QSO History is not displaying results.
  • Not having a logger enabled in JTAlert.
  • JTAlert is looking at the wrong or empty log file.
  • Protection software interference preventing JTAlert from reading the log file.
  • In your example there are no FT8 QSOs with 3D2USU in your log.

What logger do you have enabled in JTAlert

Assuming you are using a log with JTAlert, are there any 3D2USU QSOs in that log recorded? If there are, for what mode?

Hi All,
I've recently rediscovered the hobby and have just set up WSJT-X and JTAlert over the last couple of days. I'm currently only using QRZ.com for a log.
Everything seems to be working as it should, except for one aspect of JTAlert's worked B4 functionality.
I have worked 3D2USU once on two different bands. I'm getting grey a background on worked before stations in both WSJT-X and JTAlert, however when I right click on the worked B4 station in JTAlert and click on "Show QSO's History Popup", the popup states that it's not a worked B4 station.
It's all very odd since JTAlert does know that stations are worked before, but the "Show QSO's History Popup" alone doesn't seem to know about the worked B4 station.
Any ideas on how I can rectify the situation?
Thank you.

Best regards, Paul, sq5nry


Sorry, That's not possible.

I did some searching and found this note in the 2.10.0 release notes...
  Changes:

    - The multi-instance support has also been changed. Running multiple copies
       of JTAlert against both WSJT-X and JTDX simultaneously is not supported.
       You can run multiple instances of JTAlert against either WSJT-X OR JTDX
       only. Both types of applications can be running simultaneously on the PC,
       but only one JTAlert operating mode (against WSJT-X or JTDX) is allowed.

The above notes have been added to the JTAlert Help file, "Multiple Instances" topic for the next JTAlert release.

Can we maybe get some debug to find out what's going on?

Nothing I can do. JTAlert doesn't know which browser is the Windows default. The code executed by JTAlert is identical for all browsers...
