N3FJP ACLog, WSJT-X, JTAlert A Powerful Combination

N3FJP’s Amateur Contact Log (N3FJP ACLog) combined with WSJT-X and JTAlert are a powerful combination for the digital mode operator. I admittedly have favored Ham Radio Deluxe Logbook in the past, but this combination of software works very well together. Also, I don’t like the way JTAlert and HRD quit supporting each other. This version of JTAlert (v2.10.1) supports HRD …

Icom 7300 WSJT-X Using DXLab Suite Commander, JT Bridge And RUMLogNG

Maybe it was just me, but I tried over and over to get this working. I eventually broke down and used a workaround. I used Ham Radio Deluxe for rig …

Everything from improving the wide graph (waterfall), logging to HRDLogbook, setting up alerts and improving the Icom 7300 settings. All of it plays a role in WSJT-X and making JT65/JT9 more enjoyable. The Icom 7300 Settings Inside the rigs menu things are pretty much the same. If you …
