This is probably an old question but anyway why do some call signs show up without the two letter state designation?

JTAlert determines the 2 character State abbreviation via a Callsign database lookup. This only applies to US Callsigns. If the Callsign is not showing the State code then likely it is a relatively new Callsign that was not present in the FCC database the last time the Callsign database was updated (this happens approx every 2 to 3 weeks).

Another possibility is your running an old JTAlert version (prior to 2.14.4) and don't have the Callsign database installed. Starting with JTAlert 2.14.4 the Callsign database is no longer optional and is now included with the JTAlert installer.
