Setting up Alerts

Post by W3LI » 05 Apr 2021, 21:19

Need some help with Cluster Alerts. I am looking at the user manual 20/3/21 and not doing well. I have been using Log4OM since March 2014, but just now decided to try some of the other features with in the program.
I was trying to set it up for alerts on 6m. I printed out pages 74,5,6,7 and am trying to use that information.
I guess that I do not understand defining RULES. Have looked for an explanation, but no luck. That is the first issue.
Call/DXCC tab, not concerned with the DXCC country or call etc.
What I am reading on the 4 pages does not describe what I am seeing on the monitor????? Guess my eyes are not connected to my brain and fingers.
All I want is an ALERT when a 6 Meter station is shown on the cluster. Do not care about mode, country, or anything else. The KISS method.
Thanks for any help.
PS. I did look around the forum for the information before I decided to ask for help here.

Andy,

You dont say what version number you are using (See Help/About) this might be why the user guide does not match what you see, or perhaps the user guide needs updating?

Anyway I have just followed the user guide to ensure its correct and I set up as shown below and the alert worked fine.


1. Clicked the new button
2. Added a name
3. Set the alert to on including email
4. Selected both cluster and super cluster

6. Clicked the save icon (Floppy disk icon) and closed the alert manager

7. Sent a test spot for 6m

8. Audible alarm rang and the Alert warning appeared beside the call sign field which when clicked opened the window showing the alert. ( I also received the email notification)

Good morning Terry, Sorry that I am just getting back to you, xyl health issues took priority.
First, I am using Log4OM ver 2.12.0.0, also the print date on the user manual is 20/3/21.
I copied your page that you sent to the letter. Yes, now I get 6M alerts plus Digital Alerts from most all bands, 6 thru 40M. Guess that is the way it works.
Thank you for your time.
