  • What version of WSJT-X?
  • What version of JTAlert?
  • Are you using a --rig-name parameter with WSJT-X?
  • Is this in a single or multi instance JTAlert/WSJT-X environment?
  • Does the newly switched to WSJT-X configuration have the UDP Server settings correctly set.

Mike,

Not possible. Apart from the target in a targeted CQ  (directed CQ) JTAlert doesn't track the contents of individual decodes, so has no way of knowing, based on the decode message, if the DX has started working NA.

This statement confuses me...
so that
I can know that the 6meter band is opening
up to foreign DX !

Surely, if JTAlert has decoded DX stations, you already know that the Band has opened up to foreign DX. Am I missing something in your statement?

If you simply want to be alerted to a Band opening that likely includes DX stations try setting the "Out of Shack" Alert. You can set the alert to trigger on any new decodes to indicate a previously dead band has opened or set a distance value such that local (domestic) decodes don't trigger the alert, but newly decoded DX stations do trigger the Alert. This Alert can also be set to only trigger if specific Wanted Alerts are triggered. Once the OOS Alert has triggered and gained you attention, it should be turned off which will then revert to normal Alerting based on your needed requirements.

Laurie, you don't see the From lines?

No, I gave up reporting the error.. your answer is always the same.
It makes no difference what port I choose to have wsjt-x or jtdx to use the results are the same.
consequently I don't bother to turn on the 7300.  everything worked fine when I loaded everything back in 2016..

I had that issue a week or so back and it was fixed by Laurie who posted the reason on here.

Your alerts probably have no path defined for the wave files. I used the defaults for all mine and it worked.

I really appreciate JTAert. It truly adds to the low signal experience. Seems every other day I am learning new things it can do to make FT8 more fun. This group helps a lot in the learning.

Thanks for the reply Laurie.  Disabling protection software makes no difference, and Clear and Refresh give no response.  Here is the error window I get.

Sometimes there is another window that flashes on and immediately off when I exit, but it's too fast to read.

Do you have a .wav selected for each alert? If so, have you tested it to make certain it is working? Is the volume slider far enough up?

DUH! Because my grid is in the standard messages (from WSJT-), I didn't pay attention to the Call sign screen (even though I did look at it for something else). Old settings probably got wiped when I was trying to solve my slow form update problem.

Laurie,

I do get the screen as shown in your email and confirmed that JTAlertV2 Manager is running.  However,  I noticed that the band activity window had not updated since July 2.  I then temporarily shut down the virus protection software (ZoneAlarm) and shutdown/restarted JT-Alert..  The band/activity time then updated and continued to update and the log details window began to be properly updated based on the XML lookup as well.  What is strange is that even after restarting the protection software, the band activity and xml lookup continued to function.  So all is functional at the present time.  As far as the band activity/xml lookup,  what should be allowed in the ZoneAlarm protection software.

By the way,  JT-Alert is an excellent piece of software.

Bob,

You files contain the following in the "QrzXml_1.result.text" file...
> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

This is why there was no .record file to examine the xml data that goes
into that file was never received due to the username/password error.

I also note that all your session files are dated Jul-02, nothing since
which corresponds to the above error file.

For some reason, all of the status files created/update by the
JTAlertV2.Manager.exe process are also dated Jul-02 suggesting that the
Manager process is not getting run. If it is not running, than xml
lookups will not be actioned along with Alert sounds and online log uploads.

I used your config file and xml lookups worked correctly indicating that
the username/password currently set are correct.

Please run JTAlert again, leave for 2 minutes and then use the
Help->About menu to check the status of the Manger. It should show
similar to this...

If you don't get similar to the above, open TaskManager and check if the
JTAlertV2.Manager.exe process is running. JTAlert automatically (at 2
second intervals) try and start that process if it detects it not running.

If the Manager is not running, likely your PC protection software is
interfering, as prior to Jul-02 all was working correctly.
