are you sure?   During the FT8 Roundup last month, I used JT-Alert to log to DXK, but those data items were not recorded.    Maybe I need to have DXK setup in contest mode?


Yes, I'm sure. DXKeeper doesn't need to be in Contest mode.

If your tests were last month, than likely, you were using a version of JTAlert that didn't support logging of WSJT-X contest exchanges, as initially the WSJT-X rc releases didn't provide that data in the Logged QSO packet. JTAlert was extended to log the Contest exchanges only after they became available in the WSJT-X 2.0.0 GA release.

I suggest you try a test again with WSJT-X 2.0.0 GAl release and JTAlert 2.12.8 or higher (preferably the latest 2.12.10)
