I’ve been using LOG4OM V2 for about a week and decided last night to get WSJT / JTALERT running. I upgraded both programs to their latest versions. My Flex 6500 was on and both WSJT and JTALERT were open and running. Proper operation was verified with Log4OM V1.

I appreciate any suggestions on how to get this running.

 

(The steps below refer to page 142 in the latest LOG4OM manual dated 5 FEB 2020)

 

1.Enable the Remote Control port in Log4OM V2 with a UDP Port number of 2241- OK

2.Create an "ADIF_MESSAGE" inbound connection in Log4OM V2 with a UDP Port number of 2235 - OK

3. Create a "JT_MESSAGE" inbound connection in Log4OM V2 called JTALERT REBROADCAST with a UDP Port number of 1240 - OK

4. In WSJT-X/WSJT-Z File/Settings/reporting check the boxes and set the ports as shown below. - OK

5.In JTAlert in settings/manage settings/Logging/Log4OM V2 in JTAlert, enable the "Send WSJT-X DX call to Log4OM" and "Enable Log4OM V2 Logging"

When I tried to do step #5 above, I got “Fatal Error, "MY SQL Start Failure"

I was unable to proceed beyond this point.

6.Set the Control port in JTAlert to match the port used in Log4OM V2 (Step 1.)

7.Set the ADIF_MESSAGE port in JTAlert to match the port used in Log4OM V2 (Step 2.)

8. In settings/manage settings/applications/WSJT-X/JTDX in JTAlert enable "Rebroadcast WSJT-X UDP Packets (received only)" and set the IP Address to 127.0.0.1 and UDP Port number to match that set in Log4OM V2 step 3

Laurie,  I just returned to the shack 0245Z Feb 06.  Did a View>Clear Display on the Decodes Window and all future spots are now gone.  They cleaned themselves out.   I didn't change my settings, which remain as "Delete Old Records" in the Startup Options.   All is well and good.  Don't know how I this digital would survive without JTAlert.  Thanks, Herb WB8ASI    P.S.  Please keep working on that future DX spot software.

Herb,

I was able to produce future decodes by opening a previously saved wav file in WSJT-X. The wave files contain time stamps of the decodes (no dates).


Your only solution is to set the Decodes window (temporarily) to delete all entries on startup, restart Decodes then once started set the delete entries setting back to you previous setting.

The clearing of decodes in the Decodes window is not a true clear, the decodes remain in the database. The clear method applies a date/time filter expression to the sql used to display the decodes and this filter remains in effect until the Refresh menu is used. This allows you to clear the display and only display any newly incoming decodes without the old decodes reappearing. The date/time filter is set to the current UTC data/time when the Clear is used normally resulting in only new decodes after that date/time to be displayed.

Know problem affecting a very small number of users and discussed in this group many times.
The fix is to wait until the next JTAlert release due in a day or two or install an updated VC 32bit runtime package.

Thanks for the help !

John K2ZJ

The Decodes window should appear as a Window (obviously) and its entry in TaskManager will be "JTAlertV2.Decodes.exe"

If there is a TaskManager entry there should be a button (is that what they are called?) in the taskbar.

If there is no TaskManager entry, the Decodes window will not load if "Decodes" being disabled in JTAlert. See the "Windows -> Decodes" section of the Settings.

If this is recent behavior, I strongly suggest your perform a PC restart especially if your on WIn10.

Have you recently run any sort of cleanup software that removes directories from your local app data directory tree or a registry cleaner?

Bill,

This was a deliberate design decision made to prevent JTAlert using the same sound device as WSJT-X causing alert sounds to be transmitted.

To avoid this error, choose an different sound device for JTAlert.

This has been previously discussed with a free solution. See https://hamapps.groups.io/g/Support/message/26856

This window has always worked for me over the past 6 months. All of the other windows work, like Text box etc.

I have rebooted the PC, rebooted JTAlert, reinstalled JTAlert etc with no success.

In the Task Manager of windows I see that the Decodes function is there- but nothing shows on the screen.

Any help with troubleshooting?

Google "windows Recover off-screen window" for a solution. This is a very common problem with Windows resulting in many millions of search results.
