You have NOT checked the options in the "Ignore" panel of the Band

You could add a "ODX" column to your spot database display. Side-note

My recommended next step is to add an ODX column to your spot database
display, and examine the values for the entries that you believe
should not be included by the filter.

Yeah, the "origin" in "Max DX origin" has no relation to the Origin filter.

If you're still seeing spot database entries that do not include any

filter is somehow broken.

JTAlert - trying to get it working

D. Scott MacKenzie
 

Hi all – not sure if this goes here or on the WSJT list.  I am trying t get JTAlert running to no avail.  It loads fine, and I get the box where the calls go, but I am unable to change any setting – I right/Left click and I can find where to change the setting to interface with DXLabs, and to capture the data.  At least I got WSJT working and decoding properly.  Haven’t tried to transmit yet.

Hi Dave,

A Dell "Premium Support Technician" resolved issues with my desktop PC, & did the latest Windows Updates.  

Since then....."Look-up" in DXkeeper, to scroll between QSO's...is slowed a lot    Not instantaneous, as before.     The hourglass shimmers for 4-5 seconds.

I've created the Error Logs below.  

Arranged as:        DX Launcher    /     DXkeeper      /      DXview   3 MB.?!

What Next Steps do you recommend?

Re: RBN as a propagation check

Pete Smith
 

Hi Chuck - I attempt to do user support for the RBN, and would like to help.  What you need to do is to connect to a "retail" DX Cluster and use that cluster software's command set to filter.  Your story suggests that you may be connected to one of our relay servers, which have no filtering (they're stripped down for speed).

Alternatively, you can go on the RBN web site and tell it only to display spots of your call.  I think that's how most people do what you want.

Hello to all, here’s hoping all are well during this time of real biological virii, as well as the false positives of the computing variety.

 

I will often look at the RBN webpage to see were my CQ's are landing on a band that may or may not be open.  http://www.reversebeacon.net/dxsd1/dxsd1.php?f=0&c=ws1l&t=dx

 

I know there is an RBN source feeding Spot Collector, and I brought up it’s window and tried to feed a few CC Cluster commands to it to show my recent spots but the RBN window just kept pumping spots at me like a firehose. 

 

Ideally I’d like to be able to have the RBN show me where my signal is reaching, as a means of checking for an open band.  I know it’s not strictly DX related but it’s at least DX-adjacent.  Is there a way to filter RBN spots like this?  I did try filtering Spot Collector by my Call but no results there either.
