locked Re: Green Recieve Frequency Bracket

Tom Ramberg, OH6VDA

I'm afraid  I'm not computer savvy enough to do my own build. So while waiting for the dev team to consider this polite request, is there any way to obtain a build with the patch described by Kari OH2GQC?

I have trouble seeing it.
There is no configuration item to change that indicator color.

If you are able to compile WSJT-X from sources, then you can use this patch...

..to change the RX indicator to blue.

Perhaps the Developers might want to make this change in next version if we asked them nicely. BR, Kari, oh2gqc
