Hi Jim,

There are apparently some issues with delayed decodes for some users with 2.15.5. Most users who see this have gone back to 2.15.3 or, as I have, stayed on 2.15.3 until Laurie has a chance to diagnose and update the sw.

Subject: [HamApps] Callsign checking too slow

I'm using JTAlert 2.15.5 on a relatively fast 64-bit Windows 10
computer (Core i7-7000, 24 GB RAM, ATA SSD). I am reading in my FT8
QSOs via an ADIF file. There are 9400 QSOs in the log. I have the
latest version of WSJT-X (2.1.2).

I'm currently monitoring FT8 on 7074 KHz. WSJT-X is decoding around
25 callsigns per period. It's taking several (3) seconds into the
next Tx period for JTAlert to populate the callsigns in the window.
So it's pretty much too late to decide to call a station that was just
decoded.

Why can't JTAlert finish the callsign checking and display the results
before the next period starts?

I have (only) the following checks turned on:

- Wanted DXCC
- Wanted Grid
- Wanted Callsigns

If this is based solely on the # of QSOs in the log, I can't imagine
how long the wait must be for 20K or more QSOs.

The desktop icon for JTAlert, has a start path "C:\Program Files (x86)\HamApps\JTAlert\JTAlert.exe" /wsjtx".
But if I add "wsjtx" as an start program option in DXlab launcher, it doesn't work (or at least I can't get to work).

Is it possible to start WSJT-X in this way, without getting the popup select window from JTAlert?

OM,

try writing a one line batch file:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\HamApps\JTAlert\JTAlert.exe" /wsjtx

then invoke that from DX Lab Suite Launcher.

HI Richard, Do you only want to run only JTAlert on a separate-computer, or would you like to run both WSJT-X and JTAlert on the separate-computer?  If it is the latter, I may have a solution for you.  Also, how are you connecting to your radio, USB or Ethernet?

Thanks Laurie.  That fixed it.  I never had to hit the OK button in my previous setup.  When the "73" message (Tx5) on =WSJT-X was sent, a box popped up that said "QSO successfully logged".  Is there a setting for automatic logging?  Thanks for your help.

OM,

If JTAlert is not showing a logging failure message (assuming you haven't turned off those notifications), the likely cause of non-logging is that your not clicking the "OK" button on the WSJT-X "Log QSO" window. While JTAlert logging is automatic that only occurs when it receives a QSO logged data packet from WSJT-X which requires you manually hit the "OK" button.

GridTracker may be something to look at. It will run on Linux or windows. It doesn't have to be on the same computer as wsjtx.

OM,

If you can't access  the JTAlert Settings due to missing menus, the fix is simple, start JTAlert using the "Alt Layout" shortcut with the green musical note icon.

Try using the alternate layout - Start with the Green musical note instead of the red musical note.

I will attempt to recreate the workaround described by pointing the UDP output from WSJT-X (running on the rpi) to my desktop and also running a WSJT-X instance locally on my desktop to trick JTAlert into starting. I'll report back. 
Thanks for the help, everyone.

Sorry for the lack of details. Frozen meant that I could not access the program through the menus and that I could not close the program with the X in the upper right corner.
As was suggested the solution was to use the ALT menu version. Not sure why it cropped up now. I am running a different motherboard and CPU maybe the real problem.
Thanks to all who responded and especially to the creator and maintainer of this wonderful program, Laurie VK3AMA.
