A New Spin on JT Alert, HRD Logbook and WSJT-X


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

I originally tried HRD and didn’t like it. Next I tried DXLabs suite which does everything I could ever ask for. When I started with WSJT-X, I setup rig control using DX Commander. It wasn’t long before I dropped Commander and configured WSJT-X for my rig control. So, I settled on pretty much the same setup as you have here except I am using DXKeeper which I am totally pleased with. I also have JT-Alert configured to start everything when I click on its icon. I have been in data processing for 50 years now and I learned long ago that simpler is BETTER!

Thanx for all the great suggestions and videos!

Using Win4Icom, I do not use HRD rig control and the win4icom suite has the HRD server built in. Look t the instructins for Third Party Applications for the setup. Works great. I only open the logbook.

Thanks Rich for your EXCELLENT video that solved my problem with HRD and WSJT sharing the same
COM port. Now I don’t have to pull out my few remaining hairs to solve this issue. Keep up the good and very informative videos.

I have broken google searching for an answer but every time I log a contact using the exact setup you have it logs twice with a lot of missing information on each but different missing information. I am stumped have any thoughts ??

Hi Rich, I`m having the same problem with double logging, which is the best one to use WSJT-X or JT Alert, and do I just disable the one I don`t want to use.
Many thanks for all your input and videos, Johnny, GM7LSI.
