" I use WSJT-X and wonder where the band data comes from as it would be useful to stop it happening again."

It is possible for wsjt-x to be receiving on one band and indicating continuously that it is decoding another band.  You must cycle the selected band after starting wsjt-x (up to and including r3673) to ensure that the indicated band is synchronized with the rig.  I think this anomaly will also result in QSOs being logged to the wrong band but not sure of that.

Bottom line - cycle the wsjt-x band selector after startup and check that the rig QRG is appropriate for the selected band.

I'm publishing V1.0 of my LOTW QSL program.  This utility generates a map of your LOTW QSL's for each mode and band of operation.  It shows you what states are needed in red, worked states in green and a count plus list of states needed.

In addition to the map being fun to look at I've found it helps me point my antenna to needed areas.

Feedback is more than welcome.

Assuming that blacklisting is done manually, would it be too much of an imposition to email the offender with details of the error in order to facilitate corrective action and identify any possible causes?

A single minute of wrong band spots wont result in blocking that Callsign. It has to happen over several minutes, sometimes hours and sometimes, it never gets noticed and there is no block.

The latest round of explanations, coupled with my last post suggesting I would monitor Hamspots would perhaps be also applicable to PSKReporter (4th monitor...). I accept that an error occurred at my end over a period (unknown duration) and am now wondering if the reporting/recording function in WSJT-X (v3673) may have a bug and putting the wrong band in the “decoded.txt” file. I always consider this app secure as any frequency/band discrepancy if highlighted in the GUI.

Also wondering if it was possible I had another instance running in the background which produced the incorrect spots.

 

Hopefully it is a one-off

Mike,

No, it is "decoded.txt" which only contains the decodes of the current minute.

Since there is no QRG frequency recorded in that file, JTAlert uses the QRG reported by WSJT-X in the "wsjtx_status.txt" file.

To avoid spotting the wrong band, JTAlert will not send any spots to HamSpots if it detects a band change during the current minute, regardless of when in the minute the band change happened. JTAlert considers all decodes in that minute as potentially bad (wrong band) and discards them for spotting purposes.

I believe that WSJT-X spotting to PSKReporter still happens in these mid-minute band change situations, producing wrong band spots. I recall Joe mentioning (quite awhile ago) that this would be fixed, but I don't know if it is in the current release or the new code base.

How does JT-Alert get the QSO info from WSJT-X?

 

I'm working with the development team on WSJT-X and I've noticed when I switch bands at, say, the 45 second mark, that JT-Alert will decode as if the new band instead of the received band.

I see in WSJT-X's ALL.TXT the frequency change and then the decode (kind of what you'd expect) but, of course, the frequency is wrong for that decode.

 

So I was wondering the source and logic that JT-Alert uses to we can maybe figure out a fix.

 

Personally, I'd like to see the ALL.TXT format change to put freq on each line.  But is ALL.TXT the source for JT-Alert?

Thanks Jim

I thought it was a bit severe.

I always rely on the software to send the appropriate band info and to change the bands via CAT and cannot understand how this has happened over an extended time as you suggest. The only way this would be visible would be to reflect the data sent in a log or a screen pop as this is done in the background.

I will monitor Hamspots to check when I can although if an error is noticed will be a stable door after horse bolted scenario as is the screen pop/log, but at least I could at least identify it.

 

Now where to mount the 3rd monitor for Hamspots?

I do believe if you're flipping bands at the wrong time you can cause this.
 
I've noticed that if you flip bands toward the end of the cycle but before
the cycle completes the decoded calls will be compared against your current
band instead of the received band.
So I wonder if you flip bands if the audio should be zeroed out perhaps
since you're abandoning the old band?

Thanks for your help. You’re right I should have been installing ver .20 but at that point I was just trying to get anything to work. Well, I took the suggestions I received from you and Mike about KB2918614, but first I had to uninstall it and the reinstall. After that was accomplished .20 installed flawlessly and all seems well again.
 
Thank you both for helping me, and spending your time helping me solve my problem! I have never received such good support, from FREE software. I have had trouble getting help with software I paid money for!

Googling your error, suggests that the Microsoft msi installer may be broken. The suggestion made by Mike, W9MDB, remove KB2918614 and reboot before trying the install again would be my recommendation as well.

The problem definitely lies with the .msi installer or with its settings.

In your situation, the only option will be to uninstall JTAlert (using Windows Control Panel) and then run the Setup executable again.

Tnx Carl,

FYI, the next JTAlert release uses a more recent compiler version to create the JTAlert executables. I am hoping this may avoid these false-positives as most are generic (non-specific) warnings that are related to the Compiler used.

The new Compiler has produced some unexpected broken functionality which the reason that the next release is taking longer than expected to make publicly available.

Thanks for your quick response. I’m using Windows 7 Ultimate and was using 2.4.13? and was advised to upgrade to 2.4.20? I have uninstalled the software, When I try to reinstall it I get the “object exists” message and installation stops. No software to uninstall anymore.
 
The only reason why I was going to upgrade is the “updates” message in the JT Alert title bar was annoying me so I finally decided to fix it. I wish I hadn’t.

Hi Henry,

Welcome to the group.

What JTAlert version were you upgrading from?
What version of Windows?

In your situation, the only option will be to uninstall JTAlert (using Windows Control Panel) and then run the Setup executable again. JTAlert settings are retained during an uninstall, but not always, it depends on how old your version is. If you let me know your Windows version, I will be able to advise what files to manually backup incase they get removed during the uninstall.

Thanks for allowing me to join the group. I have been using JT Alert for over a year now and really enjoy it. I seem to having a problem though. Today I decided to update the software and now it will not operate? It tried to install and goes about 75% of the way and stops and terminates the installation saying the object exists?


Please help if you can

I think you should switch after the decode ends. I normally wait until after the decoder is done.

I have noticed the "wrong band" appearing on JT-Alert when I switch too soon which, of course, creates bad hamspots.

 

I just confirmed when I switched at 45 seconds that the ALL.TXT shows the decode from the "old" frequency after it puts in the line showing the frequency change.

Thanks for that explanation Mike.

Perhaps I clicked the wrong band in the selection box momentarily which caused the issue. Sounds the most logical.

Unfortunately won’t be noticed in the upload of data, so must be wary of this as I tend to switch bands after the 48 second mark.

I do believe if you're flipping bands at the wrong time you can cause this.

 

I've noticed that if you flip bands toward the end of the cycle but before the cycle completes the decoded calls will be compared against your current band instead of the received band.

So I wonder if you flip bands if the audio should be zeroed out perhaps since you're abandoning the old band?

Thanks Laurie, that has seemed to fix it.

I noted the reason i was blocked and it confuses me somewhat as I have only been in 15m and 20m for the last few months excepting for a brief foray into the WARC bands when contesters have made use of the WS part of the bands unworkable. I use WSJT-X and wonder where the band data comes from as it would be useful to stop it happening again.

 

Apologies to all affected by this error on my part.

Check the [Blocked.Calls] link, top left of the Cluster Spots display on the JT9 or JT65 Chat pages.

Hi

Question in the subject.

I am signed in, and the spots appear in the right hand table, but no data in the tables specifically relating to my contacts.

 

Thought it was at my end as just changed AV software from Kaspersky to AVG, but switching this off had no effect, and anyway as the spots were populated this being the culprit was unlikely.

locked WSJT-X question

Michael Black
 

How does JT-Alert get the QSO info from WSJT-X?

 

I'm working with the development team on WSJT-X and I've noticed when I switch bands at, say, the 45 second mark, that JT-Alert will decode as if the new band instead of the received band.

I see in WSJT-X's ALL.TXT the frequency change and then the decode (kind of what you'd expect) but, of course, the frequency is wrong for that decode.

 

So I was wondering the source and logic that JT-Alert uses to we can maybe figure out a fix.

 

Personally, I'd like to see the ALL.TXT format change to put freq on each line.  But is ALL.TXT the source for JT-Alert?
