New JT-Alert

JT-Alert 2.5.5 @PE4BAS
It might be not as new as I think, but I didn´t read about it elsewhere...VK3AMA Laurie has made a compatible JT-Alert for the new WSJT-X version. I just discovered this as the old version came up with a error message yesterday and I had to install it again. So I was looking for the latest version. The new JT-Alert is looking and working well, it is a must have for WSJT-X users. The nice thing is it also works on the old WSJT-X version and JT65-HF versions. JTMacros is now implemented and you need to start it from within JT-Alert. Some features copied from the HamApps.com site:

Audio and visual alerts for several alert conditions
  • Your Callsign decoded (someone calling you)
  • CQ & QRZ
  • Wanted Callsign
  • Wanted Prefix
  • Wanted Grid (by Band)
  • Wanted US State (by Band)
  • Wanted DXCC (by Band)
  • Wanted CQ Zone (by Band)
Automatic logging to these log types when QSO is logged in JT65-HF or WSJT-X
  • DXLab DXKeeper
  • Log4OM
  • HRD Log V5/6
  • Standard ADIF 2.2 file
  • MixW CSV file

  • Various Web Services Supported
  • Online XML Callsign Database lookup. QRZ.com (paid) and HamQTH (free)
  • Upload logged QSO to Online Logbooks. ClubLog.org and HRDLog.net
  • Upload all decoded Callsigns with frequency and Signal report to HamSpots.net

  • Works with DXLab applications
  • Automatic log to DXKeeper when JT65-HF or WSJT-X QSO is logged
  • Automatic post decoded Callsigns to SpotCollector (local spots)
  • DXKeeper lookup of previous QSOs with decoded Callsign
  • Send Callsign to Pathfinder for lookup

  • Supports user-selectable Sound Card
  • Each audio alert type has independent volume setting & wave file
  • LoTW and eQSL membership flagging of decoded callsigns
  • Band Tracking or alerts. 160M to 2M, including 60M
  • Disable audio alert for "Worked B4" stations on current Band
  • Automatic "Worked B4" flagging of previous QSOs
  • Scan your log to update needs lists for alerting (US State, DXCC, CQZones, etc)
  • Dockable to bottom or top of JT65-HF and WSJT-X window
  • Bring JT65-HF or WSJT-X window to front of other windows on alert activation
  • Auto start & close of JT65-HF, WSJT-X and other applications on JTAlert start & close
  • Send TX Power and current QSO partner data "Name, Callsign & No. Bands worked" to JTMacros for dynamic macros

A great addition for JT65A users whatever program you use actually. I couldn't do without it.


  1. Hallo Bas, dat is mooi, meteen even geïnstalleerd op de nieuwe computer. De oude versie had ik nog niet geïnstalleerd. Vandaar, dus dat komt mooi uit. 73 Paul

    1. Hallo Paul, nu kunnen we eindelijk fatsoenlijk met de nieuwste WSJT-X versie werken. Doet de nieuwe computer het goed? 73, Bas

    2. Ja, hij draait als een tierelier. Ik had op 20 meter wat RF terugwerking op de geluidsboxen, maar met een ferrietkern weer verholpen. 73 Paul

  2. Tnx for the info Bas. JTAlert is a superb companion for WSJT-X and derivatives. VK3AMA is doing a very good job.
    My only problem is that Logger32 not supported and this is not Laurie's fault.

    1. Hello Panagiotis, may be Laurie can do something for you. You can always try and ask him via e-mail. I see that besides HRD other logs are supported as well. 73, Bas

  3. Unfortunately Logger32 although is free, is not an open software. We’ll see however 73


Thanks for your comment. Bedankt voor je reactie. 73, Bas
