No xmit power transferred to AC Log

jwireman@...
 

While using the latest versions of WXJT-X, JT Alert and AClog and Win 10, when a contact is made with WSJT,. a box pops up with the contact details. If I add my transmit power into the box and hit ok the contact gets logged into AClog. Until lately the power entered always shows up correctly. Now it only shows up as .1. Without knowing where the error is created I thought I would start with JT Alert. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is this unique callsign?
The
Band Activity data download should not be affected by the Callsign.

Your problem is that your running a very old, no longer supported, version of JTAlert.
There have been several HamSpots sever changes in the last couple of years that have included changes in the service that provides the Band-Activity data. These Server changes (TCP ports and access requirements) are not supported by your old no-longer supported JTAlert version.

There is no workaround. The only fix is to upgrade JTAlert.

IMHO, you should never run an unsecured PC, which XP is now due to no longer receiving security patches, with an active connection to the Internet.

There is no WV bug with JTAlert. The problem is with Log4OMV2. It is broken with respect to ADIF importing of US WV QSOs. There are several posts on the Log4OM support forum about this.

Since Log4OM has now broken your WV QSOs, JTAlert is not finding your previous WV confirmed QSOs which causes WV to be removed from the alert database after the rebuild operation.

Your will need to fix your Log and then run the Alert Database Rebuild again.

Re: Unique callsign

Dave Garber
 

not sure if this helps, but from the website.

JTAlert 2.11.5 is the last version that can be installed under Windows XP & Vista.
This is due to future code changes that require a modern .NET Framework version that
does not support either of these two very old operating systems.
Windows 7 SP1 will be the minimum version supported starting with version 2.12.0.
This is a permanent change. 

i think may answer your question partly, but also depends on what version of wsjt or jtdx you use as well

Re: How do I filter out all USA states on HF?

Scott Armstrong
 

Glenn,

Filtering out NA will take out everything in NA (KL7 W, VE OX and everything in C America and the Caribbean)
Filtering by distance won't work. For you to cover the lower 48 from your location, you would wipe out the US, all major population centers in Canada, C. America, Carribean and part of Northern S. America.

If you are only interested in DX stations outside of the US on certain bands try this:

1. Set up and enable the wanted DXCC alert,  selecting everything or whatever DXCC you are interested in.  Don't select the US. This can be done on a per band basis.

2. Disable the wanted US State alert. Since you are not interested in US States

3. Then under Filters  check the box " Show only Callsigns generating alerts"

The only calls that will be displayed are the DXCC countries you want alerted on the specific bands.

Re: JTalert doesn't start anymore

Michael Black
 

A few people have seen this problem.

For testing purposes just rename "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\HamApps"

Then see if JTAlert starts.  If it does please zip up the old directory as Laurie has been looking for an example that causes this.

Glenn,

Have you tried filtering out non-alerting calls, as Laurie suggested? In the main JTAlert window, go to Alerts/Filters, and check "Show only callsigns generating alerts".

Re: JTAlerts 2.16.15 crashes

Edited

I rolled back to 2.16.14 and the error continued. But after checking out a few things I noticed that some how "USB Audio CODEC" had been made the default sound card for the computer. I got that corrected. So, I am now watching to see if that solved the error message problem along with a few other anomolies.

Thanks

Re: How do I filter out all USA states on HF?

 

NA - can I filter NA by Band or just ALL NA on all bands.  I do not what to include any 6M/2M NA stations.  I would very much like to exclude ALL USA stated by band.  I just am receiving way too many USA states when I just want to work DX stations.  It would make FT8/JTALert much more useful to me to only see DX stations appearing.

Tnx,

Glenn


Re: How do I filter out all USA states on HF?

By definition should include Central America too.
