locked HamSpots 155m spots being posted as 6m

Jerry Coufal
 

I received a message from HamSpots.com that my 15m spots are being posted as 6m. This appears to coming from JTAlertX 2.6.1.



I have unchecked "send spots to HamSpots.net" for now.


Any suggestions about what I may be doing incorrectly with JTAlertX to cause this?


Thanks


Jerry

I do as you suggest, however I DO recommend using some form of virus protection.
The free version of AVAST seems to be a good package to use.

I have a simple solution to this issue….

 

1.       Don’t use JTAlert if this is of some concern.

2.       Do as I do, use a dedicated machine where all you do is Radio, no surfing, email and the like, install all your REPUTABLE radio related programs and simply do not install a virus program.

3.       Deal with the false positive, report as such, add exclusion and get on with the fun of radio, rather than continued complaining.

 

I have seen the same statements asked and re-answered multiple times over the last few days, yet some people just will not accept the CORRECT answer given. One cannot program for what the virus programs look for, as that changes so frequently it is near impossible to guess or consider how to write “corrections” every week. It is the VIRUS companies that need to be proactive when a person reports false positives.

Because the virus vendors have put in code to detect when a program does something like FTP and such which JTAlert does.

So unless you want to disable the ability of JTAlert to do what it does get a virus program that allows you to do exclusions (most do).

 

Virus program throw false positives a LOT…not just for JTAlert.  But you probably don't update your other software as much plus JTAlert is a one-off program that won't be pretested by the virus vendors.

If you look at the web site, Hamapps.com, which is hopefully where you are downloading, you will see that it has been checked by a bunch of virus checkers. There is also an MDS check which you can use to verify that what you have on your computer is what is posted on the website.

I've downloaded JT Alert 4 times. Each time I run the install I get multiple messages from McAfee that the download includes Trojan threats. As a result I can't get a clean install.

Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a work around?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

No flaming here, but I AM curious how you keep synchronous your disconnected dedicated radio computer for JT and other time-dependent digital work.  Do you use some other piece of hardware to connect to satellite or something?

I just posted the results from 2.6.1 and BItDefender gives it a green light – it's the virus vendors with the "generic" Trojan detection that complain.  Any software the does FTP like JTAlert does will complain until they put in an exception for that executable (in other words every new version will create a false positive).

Subject: [HamApps] Trojan via download

I've downloaded JT Alert 4 times. Each time I run the install I get multiple messages from McAfee that the download includes Trojan threats. As a result I can't get a clean install.

Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a work around?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

And to prove my point I just tested JTAlert.exe 2.6.1 on http://www.metascan-online.com and it gets 3 hits from 44 virus scanners.

https://www.metascan-online.com/en/scanresult/file/4f5ffc6fe8264c9dbdbe5fdab84d8715

Tcptest.exe get 11 hits out of 44

https://www.metascan-online.com/en/scanresult/file/08210634e84a42d98522a22c86163f2e

 

I do believe what they may be identifying is that both programs connect to the outside world which is usually a bad behavior

 

So every time a new version is out they have to add a new hash exception to override their generic detection.

I hate to say this but to be honest the virus check done is on the installation executable which does NOT scan the internal files which are compressed.

However….there is no virus in it anyways. 

Seems every time somebody installs a new version of JTAlert the false positives pop up again.

For reasons unknown to me, JT-Alert gives false triggers on several different virus checkers.

If you look at the web site, Hamapps.com, which is hopefully where you are downloading, you will see that it has been checked by a bunch of virus checkers. There is also an MDS check which you can use to verify that what you have on your computer is what is posted on the website.

It also comes up with Norton 360.  I have not been able to figure out how to permanently get Norton to allow the program. I even listed it an an exception but after some time it will actually delete the .exe file.

JTAlert does not contain a Trojan or any other virus.  McAfee does claim there is a virus. 

 

There are a couple of workaround’s.  One is to use another anti-virus program.  I use NOD32 and have no trouble with false positives.  The other thing you could try, and I’d recommend trying it first, is to try to set an exclusion for JTAlert in McAfee.  I have heard that some people have luck with this and others don’t.

 

Good luck.

locked Re: [WSJTX] Request

Michael Black
 

If you expand JTAlert under View/Show Log Fields does JTAlert perhaps show you've worked them before?

WSJT-X doesn't sync to your log file like JTAlert does.

I do believe alerting on a callsign on every different band seen is the default for JTAlert.  There's no option to make it do anything else.  So it must think you've seen them before on that band.

 

This may be better asked on the hamapps list since it's JTAlert specific so I've cc'd that list.

Thanks Mike,

I do run JTAlert and it is a great add on. This is what I see,

I am on 20m and I see G6YEK in light green on WSJTX which tells me that
I have worked that station but it does not show up on JTAlert. When I
look at the call I see that I have worked that station on 15m But I need
it on 20m.

I also saw KE5ZCZ on 20m I had worked it on 40m & 15m but need it on
20m. That station did not show up on JTAlert as needed on 20.

I might have something set up wrong. I have JTAlert for individual band
and have the bands selected that I would like. Thanks in advance for any
help or advice.

locked DX Spotting - new feature request

Philip
 

Hi again Laurie,


Firstly, thanks again for fantastic software in use here every day.


I have a potential new feature request for you regarding selective or delayed DX spotting that affects me and probably others too.


Problem: If I enable DX spotting of everything by default then the rare DX locations (or wanted US States etc.) I have yet to work are spotted as soon as I hear them and often before I have worked them myself.


This can result in my spotting to Cluster being self defeating as I reduce the chances of me working the DX by advertising the DX immediately and then competing with many more stations I have alerted to get through what is in effect a self generated pileup. 


Poor solution: Currently I have disabled all spotting to avoid this, however I would like spot DX that I am not chasing for the benefit of others.


New solution: Either have 'selectable' DX spotting where I can choose to disable spotting on wanted DX (or anything else wanted) 


or


'Delayed' spotting option where the spot is only sent (permitted) after the completion of my QSO and the log entry has been created


Any ideas please Laurie?


Thanks again
