Using V 2.15.7

Applications>DXLAB Suite, Post decoded Callsigns to spot collector as local spots is enabled. Spots are not appearing in Spot

Perhaps I'm missing something. Any assistance to help me work through this is greatly appreciated.

+ Please depress your keyboard's CTRL key while clicking the X button in the Filter panel at the bottom of SpotCollector's Main

You need to change the JTAlert sound card to your speakers -- not the rig audio device.

Please explain exactly what you are trying to do....

Why do you need a 2nd microphone input?  Microphone inputs have nothing to do with JTAlert.  JTAlert doesn't record anything and only plays back through a speaker device which can be used/shared by all other applications on your computer.

I post this periodically.  Antivirus/Malware programs are the bane of ham operators.  For example, one of the dxpeditions was losing QSOs in the ADIF log until they excluded the directory.

Exclude all of your ham software folders and data locations.
The antivirus programs are interfering with all sorts of ham stuff including logging QSOs

For Windows Defender: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028485/windows-10-add-an-exclusion-to-windows-security

For example I exclude all of these
c:\Program Files (x86)\HamApps
c:\ProgramData\HamApps
c:\WSJT\WSJTX\bin
%LOCALAPPDATA%\WSJT-X (and any other WSJT-X directories)
%HOMEPATH%\flrig.files
%HOMEPATH%\fldigi.files

Exclude your logging program and it's data files too.
For Log4OM I also have
%LOCALDATA%\LogOM

Is there a way that I've missed to clear the incomplete QSO data from WSJT-X or from JTAlert to stop this happening ?
Hi Stewart,

you can use the F4 key to clear the DX Call and messages in WSJT-X, there is one caveat in that if the band/frequency drop down box has keyboard focus the F4 key will not have that function. You also have the option to hit the ESC key to abandon and clear down a current QSO, this action will also halt any transmission in progress. Either method should be carried through to JTAlert and any logging application windows that are tracking your prospective/current/last QSO partner automatically.

locked JTAlert causing DX Keeper to filter Log on Startup #DXLAB

When my last attempt at a QSO in WSJT-X was incomplete and the Tx1 to Tx5 message boxes still have a callsign and report details that it was last trying to send when JTAlert starts it causes DX Keeper to filter the Log to show just the list of any contacts with the station I last tried to work, the only way to clear this appears to be to click the 'X' in DX Keeper to clear the filter. Starting 2 or more copies of WSJT-X and JTAlert causes the filter to change from one callsign to the next as each copy starts to work.

I don't know what they are asking but I just installed 2.15.9 last night and cannot hear any sounds now.  The test sound card option does not work.  And I have spent all day messing around with the sound card settings in Windows 10.  Every other app works fine.  As did the previous versions of JT Alerts.  Is this a known issue with the software or something I need live help to resolve?  Thanks for comments.  Not sure if this is only me...

What is this really showing?  It is not there place in the DXCC Standings as I checked all of them on that.

Nice detailed box of information.

I can confirm this is a defect within JTAlert 2.15.9
The defect has been corrected and JTAlert recompiled. Please download from HamApps.com again
Once installed the
"Help" (or "? ") -> "About" menu should report Version 2.15.9, Build 0002, Date 9-February-2020
