If WSJT has not detected that station's
grid from a previous CQ, how is it supposed
to know the grid?

When I do tail-end a 73 like that, I look back
to see if I can see where that station has
called CQ showing their grid; otherwise, I look
at the bottom of JTalert, where it has done the
QRZ xml lookup, and I put in the grid from there
(in the logging window).

Sometimes we have to do a little work ourselves !!

Thank you for all the suggestions. Based on those, I think I figured out most of what's happening.

When I respond to a CQ, the Grid is in the DX Grid box and when the QSO is logged, the grid is passed to ACLog.

When I respond to a 73 that has alerted on Grid, the grid is NOT placed in the DX Grid box and is NOT passed to ACLog.

The Worked B4 works fine when I respond and complete a QSO starting with a CQ, it shows up as B4 and does not alert..

It does NOT when I respond to a 73 or RR73. The grid is not in the log yet (it will be once it's QSLed thru LoTW). It still alerts on Grid and is NOT marked as B4.

However, I would think the Worked B4 should suppress the Grid alert when the call/band is in the log regardless of whether the grid is in the log or not? I checked alert priorities and there isn't an entry for Worked B4.

Note that all the checkboxes you mentioned are NOT checked.

Thanks and 73!

This is okay if you want to work a station just once.
I'm working them on as many bands as possible this week.
I don't see a way to keep the call from popping up as a wanted call after working them.
I guess, I'll just have to keep the feature turned on, and keep track of them on paper, like Scott N2SAB.

1. Open "Settings" "Wanted Call Signs"

3. Under "Options" check "Alert when decoded Callsign worked B4"
4. In the "Alert Callsigns" box enter the callsigns of the 15 "13 Colonies stations" ie K2A, K2B, etc.
5. Set the "Alert Color" to your preference.
6. Click the "Save" box at the lower right.
7. Close out.

As the 13 colonies stations are decoded they will show up colored to the preference you set even if you worked them B4 ie last year.  As you work the stations you can go and remove them from the "Alert Callsigns" box.

That's way I have been working them and it's very helpful.

The Cyan colored grid indicates a Grid Alert was generated. Check your log and see if the last QSO with that station included a Grid and if it matches the grid decoded. If they are different or the Log record doesn't have Grid, then JTAlert will generate a Grid Alert if you have the "Ignore Gridsquare" option unchecked for the B4 Alert settings. That setting by default is ticked, if it is now  unticked than you would have made that change sometime in the past. Also check the Grid Alert settings and see if you have the "Alert when decoded Callsign worked B4" option ticked.

Use the DECODES display window ... all the

No problems Carey.

I can understand the confusion with the term "Scan Log" as B4 checks are also done against the Log.

The term "Scan Log" has been dropped in JTAlertV3, instead using "Rebuild Alert Progress" as it uses a universal "Progress" window for checking on the Status of the different Alert types. I think I will make a similar change in naming in V2 as well.

Perfect! Exactly what needs to be done.

FYI, you can quickly remove a Callsign from the Wanted Call Alert by right-clicking the Callsign in JTAlert and selecting the relevant entry from the resulting popup context menu. This avoids having to open the Settings window.
