This happens on several bands.  At present, it occurs on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 12, and 10 meters but not on 15.

So is this issue within the JT Alert program or all tied to the OSO/QSL database?

It's not a major problem but any hints would be appreciated.

Jim,

There was a defect in Log4OM 2.17 (and possibly earlier). When a QSO was confirmed by LOTW, and the state was WV, Log4OM changed the state to VA. This has been corrected in Log4OM  2.18, so it would be helpful to do the upgrade. Once you do that, you can either:

1. Go through your log and change each incorrect state to WV. One way to do this is to use a filter in Log4OM QSO Manager. Filter for "State EQUAL VA" and "Cnty LIKE_STARTING_WITH WV. This should show all the WV QSOs that were confirmed by LOTW, but the state was changed to "VA" Then, still in the QSO Manager, select all of those QSOs. Since the QSOs listed should all be the ones with an incorrect state, click Select/deselect near the lower left of the QSO Manager. Then, just  go to Single Field Update. In the "Field to update" box, select "State". In "New value", enter "WV". Then click "Update". That should do the trick.

2. The other method, and less complicated, is to use the Log4OM QSL Manager. Once set to LOTW, and you are in the "Download confirmations" screen, click "Date range". Set the "QSO from" date to the earliest date you need. Set the "QSO to" date to the latest date you need - even using the current date will be fine. The do the download. This should change every incorrect state to the correct one. You might want to check a few QSOs, just to be certain.

After doing either "1" or "2", do a "Rebuild Alert Database" in JTAlert. Everything should work correctly now.

Hope this helps.

73,

Jim N6VH

You'll find you should do a complete LOTW download too to update all your old WV QSOs.

locked Continent decode off but still alerting

Seems when you turn off continent decoding for any continents you still get dxcc alerts even though the decodes aren't showing up in the Callsigns window.  They still show up in the decodes window as expected.

locked JTAlert has stopped remembering logging s\ware, docking posn etc

geoff wiggins
 

Hi group.

I went to use JTAlert today and find that NO LOG is shown in the tool bar along side [20m,FT8 NO LOG,#1]. Also cannot dock the window any more, always defaults to independent position.

I select LOG4OM2, select sqlite file etc etc, save then ok. JTAlert doesn't remember these settings.

My locator, ITU zone, CQ zone and locator are also no longer remembered.

I thought this might have been an issue with version 2.50.8 but doesn't appear to be so since I've gone back to version .7 and the same errors occur.

Apart from completely uninstalling every file and starting again, any ideas please?

Could this be something to do with Win 11? I doubt it but then........

73 Geoff.

I wish more people would use LoTW. I like exchanging confirmations with the stations I work.
Just a thought.

My point is, we cannot dictate what hams use or don't use. Many see the message feature as a pain. 
No different than some feel 'setting up LoTW' is a pain.

Sharp eye! Yes, the address was set incorrectly by me. Changed it to 224.0.0.1 and it now things work. Also, page now shows both the WSJT-X UDP multicast on loop back settings menu & the outgoing interfaces options. Problem solved.

"Bravo! I am glad somebody finally said this"


 I don't know that I would go so far as 3 years.
 And I work in IT professionally, in a large enterprise org.
 5 years is probably more the limit and is considered the replacement cycle lifetime for most desktop hardware.

That said the jump from windows 7 to Windows 10 made a lot more older computers more usable.

Almost everything I own was originally windows 7, and is now 5 to 8 years old. and and when I upgraded it to Windows 10, essentially got a new life since 10 is much better written at its kernel level..

 Most folks I have heard complaining about Windows 10 either do not run their systems properly or have hardware far older than that that they want to work Windows 10 with.
