Interface to WSJT-X


John Brock
 

Is it necessary to use JTAert to get FT-8 contacts to log into  ACL?
Where is the best place to look for  interface instructions?
Thanks

Not at all. There's a cool little Python script written by W3DJS that will do it automatically in the backgrounf. It works very well. Of course you need Python to run it. I've neverf run Python on Windows but it works nicely in Linux talking from WSJT-X to ACL running on a Windoes box.

Of course you can always import from the ADIF file created by WSJT-X.
