locked JTAlert with UDP Multicast support available for testing


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.
