JT-Bridge v1.3 released

Anders Östlund (SM0THU) has released v1.3 of JT-Bridge.

Like the previous versions, Version 1.3 adds numerous new features requested by users. Additions to this version include:

  • Optional display of QRZ or HamQTH callbook info
  • User selectable columns including Entity, IOTA, CQ/ITU Zones, LoTW or eQSL users, and more based upon QRZ/HamQTH lookups
  • User selectable filter for prior confirmation via Paper, LoTW or eQSL
  • User selectable notifications for Call, Entity, CQ, ITU, State, IOTA, and Grid either “not worked” or “not confirmed”, including band specific and/or mode specific options.

As with previous versions, Version 1.3 supports MacLoggerDXRUMlogNGRUMlog and Aether with QSL checking as well as logging direct to the logbook. Additionally, JT-Bridge can set the transceiver frequency from either MacLoggerDX or RUMlogNG. Instructions on setting up that feature can be found on the documentation page.

If you are a fan of the JT65 and/or JT9 modes using WSJT-X, you owe it to yourself to check out JT-Bridge now. This outstanding application, now only about 4 months old, brings excellent filtering and assistance in recognizing stations calling CQ and new DXCC/Band/Mode combinations; thereby making your hunt for WAS/DXCC or other awards via Paper, eQSL or LoTW more efficient.

As always, JT-Bridge can be downloaded free-of-charge here.
