Hi Laurie,

An update... I am now running WSJT-X 2.2.1 and JTAlert 2.16.7 and both are working nicely. However, the occasional B4 is still not highlighting after a successfully logged contact.

I don't mean to presume anything as I am a retired IT developer in other areas, but it occurred to me that the issue may be in how a call is added to the B4 cache, not how it's looked up.

Today, I had a contact that will not display B4, and then another that worked fine and shows as B4 immediately after a successful log entry.

You probably already considered this and if so please excuse me.

Thanks again for all your great support.

FYI. My problem was solved by re-downloading the Virtual Comport Driver from Silicone Labs, cp210x_Universal Windows Driver. I read that another had had this problem after MS did an update. I have had a number of things go south on me after an MS update so I it's not hard to believe.

Going to ask the obvious questions:

1.   Did you install JT-Alert by setting the setup to "run as administrator"?

2.   Did you check to see if your antivirus has quarantined any JT-Alert files?

3.   Did anything else change on your system?  There is a Windows update out.

What antivirus are you using?    It has happened previously that some antivirus programs will quarantine program DLLs and not notify the user.    I would make sure you have the HAMLIB directory excluded from scans or, if your antivirus has the capability, to notify you before it tries to 'help' you.

Once you do that, run the JT-Alert setup again.   I suspect your problem will have been fixed.

First thing to check is CPU. Anything over peaks of 60% usage consistently should be considered for an upgrade. Second is RAM, minimum of 8 GB is needed to accompdate the OS and programs.

 

For those having issues with HRD, the latest version as of this writing is 6.7.277, not 275. Also check your cpu and ram usage in Task Manager. Hit CTRT-ALT-DEL and choose Task Manager. Also try turning off the color notifications and see if it maes a difference in intermittent logging.

Hi Barry, thank you very much for the answer, I really appreciate it.

I can’t even send the file to ESET, as the antivirus stops the download,

so the file never came complete to my HD.

 

I admire Lauries work and I trust on the professional protocols he use.

It isn’t about that, it’s just about my own protocols. As a matter of fact,

I feel I shouldn’t bring this opinions to the list, as they don’t help much.

 

Yesterday I was in the elevator and I neighbour came into the elevator,

when the door was almost closed. He was without a mask on and he

said: Ooops, sorry, relax, I am free of virus, I did a test weeks ago, he said.

Well, I stopped the elevator on the first flat and I took the stairs.  -wink-

 

Laurie, your software is great and you wrote already your name n the

history of Ham Radio, like many others as K1EA, HB9DRV, etc, did. This

problem I have with the download is just “my problem”, not your problem.

 

Happy week to all…

 

Carlos

Hi Carlos

 

You need to submit a report to ESET to verify the file is clear – they will then whitelist it in their next definition update. You will then be able to update in a day or two.

 

I use ESET Internet Security, but was happy to pause mine for 10 minutes – I trust Laurie’s checking process before he posts a file for download….

This is now the second time in a row ESET has flagged  JTAlert – I submitted the last one, didn’t bother this time. Likely to happen next time too…

 

I generally don’t like pausing my protection – but in this case I know that Laurie is very thorough with checking process and trust his software (and the HamApps site).

Hi again, Nei…

 

I know that I can turn off my antivirus whenever I want, but it isn’t my choice. I don’t mean the file isn’t safe neither, BUT,

I prefer to wait to the next downloadable (by me) beta and follow my instinct.

 

I hope you all enjoy the new beta and help Laurie to develope the JTA the more, the best. I will, as soon as I can download it

under my criteria.

 

Hope all of you, and all of yours, are safe and healthy these days. All great here, thanks God

You're only turning it off in order to be able to download the file from a known SAFE site.    You then add the HAMAPPS directory to your SAFE exemptions on your antivirus, and turn it back on.

An antivirus just checks to make sure anything you run is not infected you're not going to run the install until after you do the exemption, and restart the antivirus.

There is a reason most antivirus programs have a way to turn off the antivirus for 5 or 10 minutes.

When did you last update HRD?

Nothing has changed in JTAlert with respect to HRD logging since the changes of 2.16.4 needed to accommodate the HRD 6.7.0.269 FT4 changes.

JTAlert will only send DXCC number and Country Name in the HRD logging command if the DXCC is > 0, that is for a valid DXCC Country.

Is JTAlert showing country data in its log field area prior to logging, if so that should be getting sent to HRD.

Sorry, I am unable to test HRD logging, I don't own a copy. Perhaps one of the group members  who runs HRD will chime in with their observations.
