I dont think wsjt has a way of reading your log. Assuming you are using one.  Jtalert reads your log then colors wdjt to have you see it

Personally I do not like JT Alert at all.
Here is my setup.
Due to the hierarchical nature of the configuration all my worked before are blue but you can change that color as you like.
With this setup you will always see the stations you have worked before. If worked on another band they will come up in a different color configured as you like.

How easy is JTAlert-X to set up with WSJT-X? I usually find the more apps you bolt on the more there is to go wrong.

Phil is correct.  

While there may not be a designated color for Worked B4, the color list CAN BE easily set up to highlight stations that have been worked before.  If at least “New Call” and “CQ in message” are checked, then a station worked before will only match the last test, “CQ in message”, which effectively becomes the Worked B4 color.  I think “Show DXCC, grid and worked-before status” should be checked on the General tab.
  • A typical CQ message acquires the “New Call” color unless another condition like “DXCC” was matched
  • A station worked before acquires the “CQ in message” color, which can be customized
Hope that is helpful.

Phil,

 

There is by default a worked before colour, in that it is the default left after worked this DXCC on this band on this mode, through not worked before this band or mode. What’s left is worked before. That is the CQ colour.

Hi,

There isn't a "worked before" button per se, but if you arrange your colours correctly it will effectively give you that. See attached screengrabs of my simple set up to allow that.

You order the colours by importance, to you, from the top down. you must tick the box alongside to make that colour active. You can can the dolours to siut your needs.

Once set up, a call you have not woked before will show, in my case, as Light blue.

If you have worked that station before, again in my case, it will appear as Pale yellow. This only applies to CQ calls though.

If a station you haven't worked before is working another station, the colour will not show.

In the other screengrab is an example of the colours allowing you to see New DXCC in Purple(DS4EOI or HL3GOB), a new Grid in Pink(JA6WJL), and CQ's from stations I have worked before in Pale yellow(OH3OJ).

There are no CQ's in Light blue,as althought DS4EOI, HL3GOB & JA6JWL are all new calls, DXCC & Grid are set as higher priority than a new call in the list of colours.

Anything other than a CQ will show as White.

This simple set up is adequate for my needs. Other programs can give you more features, such as JT Alert and those mentioned in previous posts.

It does take a few minutes to understand initially, but once done works well.

locked FT8 deep decode speed on Pi 4B #FT8

Bruce KX4AZ
 

I've been trying out WSJT-x with FT8 recently, running the latest full release on a Pi 4B w/4GB memory, 32GB microSD card, and I notice that on a crowded band (e.g. 20m in the afternoon, >35 stations), the final set of deep decodes will roll out as long as five seconds into the next 15s slot.  Is this a typical decode speed for WSJT-x running on a Pi 4B?  .  On my Windows 10 desktop the deep decodes don't spill over more than a second or so.  I'm assuming this just reflects the more limited processing power of the Pi. Not really an issue but I just wanted to confirm my performance is typical.

That you are not a programmer answers your own question. WSJTX can
maintain a database of each country, grid and zone for the current
colors. Add "worked B4" for every callsign (and band and supported
mode) and you now have a database that is unbounded.

There is a substantial difference between tracking a limited number
of objects and tracking every QSO.

The worked before color is the CQ in message color. It is the default that will be displayed unless one of the other conditions (like new call on band) takes precedence.

JTAlert-X is very easy to set up and use. With my Flex 6700 I usually monitor 6 bands at the same time for FT8 with 6 instances of WSJT-X and JTAlert-X as well and it works great.

You can configure JTAlert-X for many different types of alerts and functions. If you want it will tell you visually and audibly if you've worked a call before which is what you asked about.  It's the perfect companion to WSJT-X. It even has a text window so you can communicate with other users if they are using JTAlert-X and are on line.

Go to the JTAlert-X site hamapps.com/ and you will find all the install instructions. It only takes a few minutes to install.

I set “cq in message” to black on red and “new call on band” to black on green.

 

The system is that “cq in message” color takes priority unless “new call on band” or one of the other color settings takes priority. Thus, if I see a CQ with a red background that means STOP, don’t answer him because I’ve already worked him on that band. If I see a CQ with a green background that means GO ahead and call him because I’ve never worked him on that band.

Phil,

do you mean call worked before, or DXCC Entity worked before, or CQ Zone worked before, or grid worked before, ... I fail to understand why some can't grasp the concept that if there is highlighting for a new call then absence of that highlighting must mean worked before. Why would anyone want to highlight calls they don't want to work?

The answer to this question IMHO is simple, "not yet".
He should contact the author of the program, and explain why he wants this feature, if it seems useful to others, it may get added.

I can think of a couple of DISADVANTAGES of doing that.

1)      The decoded messages from your QSO partner will not show up in the right window.

2)      Text from the QSO partner will not be decoded first, giving it priority over other transmissions.

Why would you not want your Rx frequency to move to the frequency of the station whose CQ you're replying to?

I realise that you'll still see the decodes of the other station in the Band Activity window no matter what your Rx frequency is, but for the life of me I can't see what benefit you might gain by not having your Rx frequency move onto the Tx frequency of the other station!
