This page was setup as a reference as several club members were using Swisslog and WSJT-X. Subsequently several members also wanted to use GridTracker so this page explains the configuration required to integrate all 3 programs.
The configuration relies on WSJT-X forwarding message to Swisslog which in turn forwards to GridTracker.
- Swisslog Menu – Tools – Digital Modes Interfaces – WSJT-X
- Assuming you have already configured WSJT-X to work with Swisslog the Program Location should already be set
- The Auto Start option just launches WSJT-X several seconds after Swisslog has started
- The main configuration relate to the top line
- Active – enable networking
- IP Address – 127.0.0.1 this is the local loopback address
- Port – use the default of 2237 (unless its being used elsewhere)
- Forwarding – enable networking (this is disabled by default)
- IP Address – 127.0.0.1 this is the local loopback address so forward on the internal network
- Port – use the default of 2332 (unless its being used elsewhere) this is the port where all the inbound messages from WSJT-X will be forwarded and allows GridTracker to receive the data
- At the bottom of the screen GridTracker has been added to automatically start (shortly after WSJT-X is launched). Only add this once everything is working as expected. Do NOT set the Active field.
- WSJT Menu – File – Settings – Reporting Tab
- Configure the UDP Server only
- UDP Server – 127.0.0.1 this is the local loopback address
- UDP Server Port Number – 2237
- Enable Accept UDP Requests, Notify on accepted UDP request and Accepted UDP request restores window
- Secondary UDP Server – Do NOT enable
- GridTracker – Settings Button (wheel)
- Settings – General Tab
- Port – 2332
- The GridTracker receive UDP Messages window will have a yellow background & countdown timer running until it receives messages from Swisslog
