Thanks for your e-mail. If you are just getting started with digital, AC Log 7.0 will be enough to get you going. That said, JTAlert and / or GridTracker provide a lot of additional displays and information, so once you get settled in you may want to run those as well. You can connect all 3 or 4 apps simultaneously, enjoying direct connect to N3FJP, N3FJP's coloring feature of WSJT, and all the benefits the other programs provide by setting up multicasting as detailed here:
Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement on the software!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Just Upgraded to 7.0 Wow.. and Question
Greetings and thank you for your continued support of the Ham Community.
I have been using AC Log for a few years now. I received the notice via groups that version 7 was available. I was surprised to be greeted by an upgrade notice that let me upgrade ACLog when I fired up the program. It was a joy to upgrade/update without having to download the file. Wow Big Plus Plus there. I upgraded from 6.9
I am new to digital and just getting around to FT8. More Specifically, I just Downloaded WSJT-X and will be running it with IC-7300 at home, and TS-480 out in the field. Looking forward to ACLog and WSJT-X.
Question: I read that ACLog does not require the use of JTAlert to communicate with WSJT-X. Is there a specific reason I would want to run JTAlert since ACLog now does not require it? I realize there may be some input of a subjective nature, but I am new and looking for general consensus on the topic.
