HamApps Support (VK3AMA)
 

Users who want to test UDP Multicast support provided by the current Beta build of JTAlert can try this build...

https://dnl.HamApps.com/Beta/JTAlert.2.16.10.build.0012.Beta.Setup.exe

Please report your experiences/observations with this build. I am keen to hear from DX Aggregator and Grid Tracker users when those applications have been correctly set to use the WSJT-X multicast IP address (NOT the JTAlert UDP resend feature) and running along-side JTAlert

Note: This is a Beta release and will cease functioning after 4 weeks.

From the release notes...
    - UDP Multicast: JTAlert now supports joining a UDP multicast group IP address
       when interacting with WSJT-X. This is automatic, using the settings as defined
       for each detected WSJT-X instance discovered running on the same PC as JTAlert.
       Multicast support across multiple PCs/Networks is not supported.
       Current JTAlert/WSJT-X setups, either single or multiple instance will operate
       as normal without any changes to WSJT-X settings.
       Users who want to take advantage of concurrently running applications like DX
       Aggregator or Grid Tracker along-side JTAlert will need to set the WSJT-X UDP
       Server to a valid Multicast IP (in the 239.0.0.0 to 239.255.0.0 range) and set
       those applications to use that IP address. JTAlert requires zero-configuration.
