JT-Bridge v2.2.1 now available

Anders Östlund (SM0THU) released Version 2.2.0 and very quickly thereafter, v2.2.1 of JT-Bridge.

JT-Bridge acts like a bridge between WSJT-X and your logging application.  It features:

  • Displays CQs from WSJT-X
  • Double-click on a CQ to reply in WSJT-X
  • Check QSO and QSL status of calls, DXCC entities, CQ zone, ITU zone, State, IOTA, Grid and Continent in your logging application
  • Send logged QSOs from WSJT-X to your logging application
  • Support for AetherMacLoggerDX and RUMlogNG logging applications
  • Send notifications to OS X Notification Center for unworked or unconfirmed items.
  • Send a notification to OS X Notification Center when you are called
  • Read transceiver frequency from your logging application
  • Set transceiver frequency via MacLoggerDX or RUMlogNG
  • Control the PTT via your logging application
  • QRZ or HamQTH call book lookup
  • Show LoTW and eQSL users
  • Show distance and bearing to CQ caller
  • Show information about the station worked with WSJT-X
  • Macro buttons with information about the station being worked
  • Mark CQs with strikethroughed text, if the CQ specifies a call area that you are not within.
