Maybe this is why there is no connection or is is it changed recently ?

+ In the most recent version of SpotCollector, the "Host Address" textbox was removed from the WSJT-X panel on the Configuration window's "Spot Sources" tab because it isn't necessary.

+ Please do the following:

1. on the General tab of SpotCollector's  Configuration window, check the "Log debugging info" box

2. terminate SpotCollector

3. start WSJT-X if it's not already running, and configure it to decode FT8 transmissions on a band that is open

4. start SpotCollector

5. wait until SpotCollector displays several new Spot Database Entries decoded by your instance of WSJT-X

It's nice to be recognized, but what wasn't recognized is the extent to which DXLab is a team effort. If you report defects, or
suggest an enhancements, or cite ambiguities in the documentation, or manage one of DXLab's databases, or produce documentation, or
test new versions of DXLab applications, or written a review, or given a presentation to your club, then you've been moving DXLab
forward.

Multiply these individual contributions by the thousands of ops who have participated here over the past ~19 years, and the result
is far more than any one person could accomplish.

Developing software is easy. Knowing what functionality to provide, and providing it in a usable and reliable manner is what's hard.
This group is what makes that possible.

Onward!

Hi André,

make sure that you are not running WSJT-X as Administrator as that will block communications with other applications. Make sure no other application is set up to communicate with WSJT-X using the WSJT-X UDP protocol, JTAlert for example.

If that does not help; then you can use a tool that comes with WSJT-X to test the UDP message mechanism. Close SpotCollector and open a CMD prompt widow. Start WSJT-X and the WSJT-X message_aggregator application:

  \WSJT\wsjtx\bin\message_aggregator

If everything is correctly configured, after a few seconds, a window reflecting the WSJT-X instance should appear in the MessageAggregator. You must close MessageAggregator to allow WSJT-X to communicate with other applications like SpotCollector.

Re: Congrats to Dave AA6YQ

Aravind is right. It needed perseverance, that finally paid out.

I have been nominating Dave the second year for induction into the CQ Hall of Fame now.

And since there are just five inductees this year, it is even more precious.

Are there any (stateside) co-supporters that assisted me in this – just curious.

 

Anyway, Dave, congratulations from me too now.

 

And, don’t forget, if there is someone who does this much for our beloved hobby of amateur radio, submit your recommendation for the induction into the CQ Hall of Fame to the CQ Magazine.

And, it’s always nice if the person is not SK, but alive, and get’s the recognition and appreciation that he/she deserves.

I use the color-coding from SC into WSJT-X and it work(ed) after the setup for several weeks. As i am still learning and using DXLAB i must have done something and the color-coding stopped working. In de Bandactivity panel in WSJT-X no colors are shown anymore. Colors in SC are fine.
Checked the setup again with GettingStartedwithK1JTModesDirect <http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/GettingStartedwithK1JTModesDirect> with no result.

Probably is small tiny check-box must be wrong, i haven't found it yet.

Um ... I don't think Dave put the software in the 'public domain', he's made it free for the download, with free support, but the code is still proprietary.

+ Correct. There's a "Display License" button on the Configuration window of every DXLab application...
