locked WSJT-X Decodes not transferring to JTAlert

Dennis <dennis@...>
 

I was operating on 160 this evening and everything was working normally.  I went
away from the shack for a few minutes, and when I came back decodes from WSJT-X
weren't displaying in JTAlert.

I went through the UDP troubleshooting section of the help file but it's suggesting
a configuration I've never used here, before and haven't needed to use.

The help file said to copy my current operating state to a message to the support
group, so here it is.

Ken Alexander <ve3hls@...>
 

Hi Dave,

Cloudlog's author runs my copy of Cloudlog on a computer at his end because everything is done on Linux machines, which I know nothing about.

My workflow:  WSJT logs my FT-8 contacts to its own ADIF file, which I upload to Cloudlog every few days  All other QSOs are handled by N1MM Logger and the ADIF file it generates is uploaded to Cloudlog as well.  Cloudlog can generate an ADIF that contains all logs from WSJT-X and N1MM, with LoTW status for both.

JT Alert requires that I have an internal "logging" function turned ON in order to use Rebuild Alert Database.  I don't want another QSO logger.  It would be a lot easier to simply read the ADIF file Cloudlog can generate, but it's not able to do that.

73 and thanks!

My understanding of how things work is pretty much as you described.  However, I use a logger (Cloudlog) that is web based and stores my logs in "the cloud".  There's nothing on my computer to sync with JT Alert.  I can download an ADIF from my logger and I think JT Alert can read it but I'm not sure and am a little scared of making a mess of things.

I update my alert list manually every week or so; I don't work that much new stuff. I also keep countries and states on the alert list until they are QSLed.  I don't know if JT Alert lets me do that.

As I understand it, the "alert database" in this case is the database within JTAlert that keeps track of what you want to be alerted for.

When we "rebuild the alert database" (by the way, terminology for this action was recently changed to better describe it) we are scanning the database of the logging app, to see what we have confirmed or not "as of right now."

This should be done after any new contacts have been confirmed in the log, such as after updating the log from LOTW. Then for example, JTAlert will see that we no longer need a country or prefix or whatever you are looking for, and no longer bother you with alerts for stuff that you have confirmed.

Hope this helps.

JTAlert Support (VK3AMA)
 

The latest JTAlert version 2.50.9 is now available at https://hamapps.com/JTAlert/

Note: The installer is now distributed as a single multi-architecture x64 & x86 (64bit & 32bit) executable file. After installation when JTAlert is run it will automatically use the correct 64bit or 32bit files required by your Windows OS installation. It is important that the correct NET 5 Desktop Runtime is installed, 64bit or 32bit, matching the architecture of your Windows OS. If you're running 64bit Windows you need the 64bit (x64) version of the NET 5 Desktop Runtime, NOT the 32bit version.

The new installer has been examined by Microsoft and flagged as Virus/Trojan free. The MS Defender definitions files have been updated to exclude JTAlert 2.50.8 as a possible threat.

Full release notes are available at the end of this message. I strongly encourage all users to read these before installing this new JTAlert release.

de Laurie VK3AMA

Release Notes:

2.50.9 (01-12-2021)

  *** Includes Callsign database file version 2021-12-01 (2021-Dec-01)

  Changes:

    - Ignored Callsigns: When disabled, all callsigns in the ignored list are now
       treated as non-ignored and can produce other alert types if triggered.
       Previously when disabled only the ignored coloring of the callsign was
       removed and the callsigns would not generate other alert types.

  Fixes:

    - VE Province Alert: LoTW confirmed provinces not found when running the
       "Rebuild Alert Database" operation against a DXLab DXKeeper log.

    - Blocked HamSpots Spotting: The help file topic for blocked spotting not being
       displayed when the warning popup window was acknowleged.

    - Fatal Error: Random line 38993 errors. (2.50.8 defect)

Hi Ken,

As  you add new DXCC confirmations, rebuilding your dB will automate this so that you don't need to do it manually.  It also does it for all the various awards, not just DXCC.

I'm baffled by the need to "rebuild" an alert database.  Shortly after installing JT Alert I went to the settings menu and created lists of Wanted DXCCs for each band.  Isn't that my Alert Database?  What does rebuilding the alert database do that I haven't done already?
