JT-Mapper version 1.0.3 released

When you run JT9 and JT65 using WSJT-X, have you ever wondered where in the world all those stations you are hearing are?

Carl, WG1V certainly has, which is why he wrote a little R program to map them all in real-time. That tool is called JT-Mapper, and if you’re running WSJT-X on a Mac or Linux, he’d love for you to give it a try and let him know what you think of it.

Changes in Version 1.0.3, September 19, 2017

  • Fixed a rather confusing bug that incorrectly computed which stations to highlight when starting up in an unknown mode.
  • Also corrected behavior when a read of the log results in a null record.

Changes in Version 1.0.2, September 18, 2017

  • Two major changes in this release:
    • Argument parsing: JT-Mapper now has real argument parsing to allow you to specify log file location, enable debugging, change colors, and a host of other options. Type ./JT-Mapper.R --help or ./JT-Mapper.R -h for the full set of options.
    • FT 8 support: JT-Mapper now can parse and update its map in 15 second intervals when WSJT-X is in FT8 mode.

These changes should make the program a bit more useful for today’s WSJT-X user.

JT-Mapper can be downloaded from github.
