    It has been almost two years since I posted the above, and tried out the current version (1.20.0302). It installed without problem, but still gives the same error and will not run. Is there any known cure? I've made over 1,000 FT8 contacts now, and use JTAlert all the time - but I would _Really_ like to be able to see the map!

    Thanks,
    Doug, K8RFT

    Well part of your problem might be you are running such an old version of Windows.
    I'm sure you are aware of that so I won't elaborate on it. My suggestion would bo to try the copy of GT you downloaded on another computer with a more up to date OS. If it works then you can assume the problem lies with your OS which was replaced in 2009 and support ended in 2017.

    This is GREAT!!! I couldn't get JT ALERT to work, it always comes up with UDP errors, but this works fine!!

    Or it might not. However, I'm not in a position to spend a couple thousand dollars and a month or so of getting a whole new system set up and then find out that it made no difference.
    I couldn't find any mention of Gridtracker having OS limitations, and still can't.

    Hi All -

    Appreciate if anyone can help as I couldn't find a solutions...

    When I complete a QSO and GridTracker uploads to LOTW I get the following error pop up - error: qso date is not within the date range specified on your callsign certificate

    I notice if I manually upload a file it prompts to enter a date or leave it blank...

    Did I leave out something or mis-configure a cert?

    Thanks for any help in advance -

    Greg

    On the reporting tab, do you have all 3 boxes checked?

    Got it - I had to renew with 'no' end date. I had inadvertently entered a date and it expired.

    I'm sitting here on my phone-sofa and am confused. I wonder why "ALL" was removed from "band" selection on the "Map View Filters" section in the most recent updates. It bugs me because I used it to get a better visual of various awards aggregated on ALL bands, rather than just one band.

    ALL wasn't removed.. it was renamed to "Mixed" as that's the proper name for it.
