If JTAlert is alerting on an entity (DXCC or State or whatever) that you believe it should not be alerting, it is because that entity is still flagged within JTAlert as needed.
JTAlert will only remove an entity from the needed lists by running the "Alert Database Rebuild" operation which goes off and examines your Log (DXKeeper) to determine what is no longer needed.

If you believe there is a genuine problem when JTAlert is alerting on a Specific Entity despite that Entity being confirmed within DXKeeper then I will need to examine your DXKeeper log file. Use the "Help" -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis. Include in that request a note of a specific Callsign (and the Band & Mode) that was Alerted when you beleive it should not be.

OK,

Then clear the PWR value in JTAlert. JTAlert remembers your last set value and will restore it when next started.

While checking the code I discovered a minor one-time anomaly with the PWR value save/restore. When setting the value to nothing, it is not saved unless there has been a logging event. This is now corrected for the next release.

Is there a another version for Windows XP later than 2.11.5 ??
Thanks alot and thanks for your hard work for the ham community.

No, there is no later version of JTAlert that is XP compatible.

You have 2 options...
  • Stay with your current version of JTAlert that is XP compatible and live with the loss of JTAlert functionality (Text Messages, Band Activity and HamSpots spotting).

  • Upgrade your PC to a  minimum of Win7 SP1. If you go the Win7 route, you will eventually be in the same situation as you're in with XP.

My advice, upgrade to WIn10.

Send it to me direct.

As for the crashes. This sounds like PC Protection software interference rather than something broken within JTAlert especially considering that JTAlert is again starting to crash even when idle when it ran without issue for an extended period.

Most likely your protection software has done an update and is again interfering.
What protection software are you using? Check its logs to see if it is being "helpful" in keeping you protected.

I haven't had much luck figuring this out. I hope to spend time this weekend on it. In the meantime with the bands opening a bit I filtered out NA and am working DX exclusively. It has been fun. :-)

Dave,
Thanks for your response. I wonder if this could be due to some filtering setting. With that said, I'm seeing the US stations on the grid and I'm clicking on them to respond to CQs. If that was set, they shouldn't show up, right?

Off and on I've had trouble with JTAlert not responding in what I thought was random occurrences. In the last few days with the bands opening a bit and focusing on DX, I've noticed that it doesn't seem to have this issue when working DX stations. As soon as I click on a station in the US, the JTAlert memory jumps up about 10 MBs and the window shows not responding. If I let it sit, it will eventually quickly display what was missed and start functioning again. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?
Thanks,

Don't know if anyone recommended DXKeeper, part of the DXLabs suite of programs.   Its free, and has excellent integration with JT-Alert.   You don't need to install the entire set of programs, just what you need at first.

I am repeatably receiving alerts on entities I do not need. DXView confirms this.
DXLab Suite/SpotCollector should not alert on any spot from JTAlert
unless you need it. If SpotCollector is alerting you do not have
your objectives set correctly in DXKeeper/SpotCollector.

If JT Alert is alerting on something, you have not properly set your
objectives in JTAlert and scanned the log in DXKeeper.

Your image shows that the style sheet (css file) is not being loaded.

Try clearing your browser cache and then reloading the HamSpots page.

If you examine the source of the HamSpots page you will see the style-sheet link. It will be similar to this...
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://hamspots.info/css/blue_1000_01102019.125424.css" media="screen" />

You can confirm that hamspots.info (where the css file is hosted) is reachable by going to https://hamspots.info/ which should result in a simple display of
"[hamspots.info]"

May I recommend Log4om2. Brilliant program and I have used it successfully for some time now. Auto logging with it is very easy.

You will probably have to import your WSJT-X ADIF into your chosen logger to start, and then point JTAlert to that logger.

Michael, Jim, Larry,

Thank you all for your responses, complete with three different logging programs that I will be exploring; one thing for sure is that I need a logging program, and it's good to have that confirmed. I had used N1MM+ in the past, but in SSB contesting only, which has been rare as I prefer digital, for now.

Regardless of which logger I go with, selecting the appropriate logger settings in JT-Alert will simply bring over/export my current WSJT-X log (adif) to the new logger, I hope?

Thanks again for your help.
