Is there a way to open the wsjtx.log.adi with the most recent contacts at the top?

Hi Jonathon,

the WSJT-X ADIF log file is just a text file and new entries are appended to the end. Unless you have some application that can read the whole file, understand the ADIF record format, and sort the data the way you want it; you are not going to get that.

ADIF is a format for transferring log records from one application to another. Importing the ADIF file into a station logging application will allow you to search the records etc..

Jonothan,

ADIF Master is designed to manipulate ADIF files.  It is free and may do what you want.

Arnold,

If you really want to find it, just go to route File – Open log directory and it should be there as “wsjtx_log.adi” or “wsjtx_log”, if your file extension are hidden. At least for the current instance of wsjt-x.

Arnold, download a copy of WiseJetSearch ...it is light years faster than a regular Windoze search (I guess you are using Windoze) and it will show you what you need....

When I open wsjt_log.adi with notepad++ it opens at the beginning of the file.

Are you looking for the correct file name? It's wsjtx_log.adi (not wsjtx.log.adi as in the title of the message).

The easiest way to find it is to run the program, use the File menu and select the "Open log directory" menu item. That will open a File Manager window open on the directory containing the log files, among others. There should be a text file called wsjtx.log and another one called wsjtx_log.adi .

If you have not changed from the defaults in Windows File Manager, it might be hiding filename extensions from you, so that the files might appear to be called wsjtx and/or wsjtx_log . If so, use the  View menu, select Options, select the View tab in the Folder Options window, and look for a check box called "Hide extensions for known file types", UNcheck that check box, and click on OK. File Manager should now show you full filenames.

Thanks Ron for the tip on using Wisejetsearch.


At first it did not come up with anything. Dropping the .log suffex did it.

Thanks all for the info. I downloaded it as a text file in case I need a backup copy.  I already lost my contacts when I upgraded afew years ago.  The color code was lost for contacts made in the past.

That's the way text editors work. They assume that you want to start at the beginning. Grab a copy of ADIF Master. It will allow you to sort on any field.
