*Some Important Notes:*
1. 2.4.0 is *NOT* available via the JTAlert internal update mechanism.
This is due to changes in Wanted Alert lists handling.
2. Existing, pre 2.4.0 Wanted Alert lists are *NOT* migrated as part of
3. The Wanted Alert lists cannot be migrated to the new lists used by
2.4.0 and a *log scan* will need to be done to populate the new
lists structure. Lists for JT9, JT65, any mode and digital modes for
any band and for individual bands are automatically updated for each
Wanted Alert type during a log scan. If JTAlert logging is not
enabled, then your preferred list (band and mode tracking) will need
to be manually updated as per previous versions of JTAlert. This
manual update only needs to be done for your preferred mode and band
*Important information regarding Wanted List changes in 2.4.0*
1. The Alert Wanted lists tracking has been extended, with 4
simultaneous lists being maintained, Any mode, JT65, JT9 and any
Digital mode, with tracking by band or by any band for each of the 5
Wanted Alert types (US State, DXCC, Continent, CQ Zone &
Gridsquare). You cannot choose which lists are updated during a Log
Scan, they are all updated and maintained, regardless of your
preferred tracking requirements.
2. You will need to do a Log Scan to create the new Wanted Lists. Visit
each of the Wanted Alert types and set the Band and Mode tracking
you desire for the Alert. Then run either individual scans or a scan

3. The Scan results will highlight in Green any lists that have changed
from the current, in memory, lists. The first time run, most will
highlight since all the lists will initially be empty.
4. When making manual changes to the Wanted Lists (all except Grids)
and the tracking is "by Individual Mode (JT9, JT65)", only a single
display of check-boxes is visible, representing a single mode. A
mode drop-down list will be visible for mode tracking and this will
allow switching between modes for updating purposes. The displayed
mode is remembered between JTAlert restarts. The Log Scan will
update both JT9 & JT65 Wanted Lists regardless of which mode is
being viewed when the scan is run.
