locked Contact's name not being inserted in saved record #FT8 #IssueReport


Kevin Rea
 

When wstj-x adds the record after the end of the call, it inserts everything into the record we except the name of the contact.

Is there a setting to mak.e this happen ?
I usually copy and paste from qrz.com

It could be done by the log program. Wsjt-x doesn't know the name.

Works in my tests with WSJT-X v2.5.4.
The name entered on the Log QSO window is getting recorded correctly into both the wsjtx_log.adi and wsjtx.log files after confirming the QSO by clicking the OK button.

Hello, I have the same problem. Using WSJT-X v2.5.4 and JTalert v2.60.2

When the contact is established, JTalert window shows the call and name of the contact OK
But when the contact is confirmed and the WSJT-X window pops-up all the info is there BUT not the name of the contact, so Laurie I don't know why it works with you and not with me and Kevin ( and maybe some more others ) I'm a member of QRZ and use this callbook

It seems to me that this is a #JTALERT issue and
not a #FT8 and
not a #IssueReport and
not a #WSJT-X issue.

I use Grid Tracker with WSJT-X. It includes the name when it uploads the
QSO.

Indeed it is a JTAlert issue.

The JTAlert QRZ upload code was written long ago. At the time QRZ only accepted a limited number of adif fields in the upload.The Name field was not supported according to the api documentation I have. At some point QRZ updated their logbook api and no longer list permitted adif fields. I have just now extended JTAlert to upload the Name field and have confirmed that the data is now being propagated. This fix will be in the next JTAlert release.
