Hi Brad,

One easy way is to use JTAlert.

bother me. lol

Configuration and using it seems simple enough but I never have been
able to download anything from github. I'll try later, not my
favorite site to download anythign from. It never was, thanks.

Click the green Code button and select download ZIP. This will get you all the files in one ZIP file. All you really need are wsjtx_to_n3fjp.py and config but I would just unzip the whole folder to somewhere you can easily find it.

Note that this is a Python script, you will need a copy of Python on your system. I'm running this on Linux in my shack so I can't help you much if you are a Windows user.

You didn't ask this, but you might want to try out GridTracker with the two other programs. The three work well together. It's just a simple matter of configuring GridTracker to send it's data to ACL as Gridtracker easily pulls the data from WSJT-X. plus you get all the visual maps on the screen and a way to visually track your needed and previous contacts. Well worth a look.

I agree with Rick, N5RJJ.  Take a look at Grid Tracker.  Works FB for me to upload logs to ACL, LoTW, Club Log and eQSL automatically at the end of each QSO.

I agree.  I always had some minor but annoying little quirks with JT-Alert.  Then someone turned me on the Grid-Tracker, and it’s been smooth ever since.  Just wish I had more time for radio.

I played with grid tracker last night and it seems to be pretty good.
So far i like that better than the other options I tried.

Glad I could help. I keep finding out new things I can do with it and the 3 work together great.
