We’ve been really busy with this release, I hope you’ll be pleased.
There’s been a lot of discussion on various sites about JTAlert and GridTracker not working well together. I have tried as many things as I can think of to make JTAlert happy but it’s just not happening. What we need is multicast UDP support and as I understand it, JTAlert v3 will have it. Until that is released , we’re kind of stuck with working together.
The latest Release Candidate of WSTJ-X (wsjtx-1.9.0-rc2) has introduced a separate N1MM UDP Logger+ Broadcasts config options in reporting for logging QSO’s, this may be a workaround for now (I have not tested it yet).
Cheers and I hope you enjoy the program!
Thank you so much for the interest in GridTracker.
I have been working with N2VFL and others in our spare time for the past two weeks on this project.
That’s right, it’s only been two weeks from inception! I can’t believe how much we’ve got done!
This next weekend I will be adding QSL confirmed marking to the map as well as a count, plus gridsquare labeling while zoomed in far enough so it doesn’t clutter the map.
I will also begin working on alerts, the current types I will implement are “Callsign” “Gridsquare” and “CQ designation eg: CQ NA, CQ JP, CQ OC ” with the alert being
“Audio clip ( possibly your own selected media file)” “Text to speech engine” “Visual” and in the future possibly “CW” with tone/farnsworth timing/wpm etc.
If there’s anything else you’d like to see in this program or if you’ve found a problem, please post a comment here
We are listening!
