locked N1MM+WSJTX+GridTracker #WSJTX_config


Michael Luke
 

A WSJTX related compatibility question. I’ve been running WSJTX integrated with N1MM for several years. A friend said I should look at using GridTracker. I download/installed GridTracker and tried to use all 3 programs but GridTracker does not receive UDP messages on port 2237 if N1MM and WSJT are running. I configured a version of WSJT only with GridTracker and that worked. I looked on the GridTracker forum and there are some notes on problems running all three programs. I cannot get their “solutions” to work. Is it possible for 2 programs to use the same UDP port? Are these three programs compatible? If anyone has done this please let me know your configuration.

Hi Mike,

I believe that N1MM Logger+ does not support multicast UDP, which is needed if more than one server is to interoperate with WSJT-X instances.

JTAlert has a facility to re-send the WSJT-X UDP traffic on a different port, which you could use to feed N1MM Logger+ but that is only one-way so N1MM Logger+ would not be able to initiate QSOs in WSJT-X if you chose that route.

Mike, WA3MJZ,
    The latest version of GridTracker has the ability to forward UDP traffic from wsjtx. However, as Bill as pointed out, the packet flow is one way. I use N3FJP Logging which does support multicast UDP traffic.
