Is there no capability to export ADIF from the WSJT-X software?

From WSJT-X, select File, then "Open log directory." Should see the adif file. By the way, why not use WSJT-X for Mac if you're using MacLoggerDX?

Recent MLDX versions will also upload to QRZ, LoTW, eQSL, and ClubLog automatically.

It creates a log file but it seems the format can not be 
brought into N1MM or MacLoggerDX 5.62

P.S. : Using my Flex6700 with wsjt-x v1.8 rc1

Look for JT-Bridge software (by SM0THU). It will allow automatic import of WSJT-X contacts into MacLogger DX. 

Also, in the log directory for WSJT-X there are actually two log files. One is wsjtx.log and the other wsjtx_log.adi - can you confirm the .adi is the one you're trying? It looks like you posted from the .log file.

George - Thanks for posting this! I didn’t know it would auto import into MLDX, I am definitely going to try this. My method was a bit klunky....

I have been using JTAlert-X with WSJT-X to create a log file, just use the setting in JTAlertX to create a generic ADIF file. Then I import that into MacLoggerDX, and haven’t had any problems.

I am using v6.14 of MLDX, but I wouldn’t think that is an issue. Using WSJT-X 1.8 rc2, and JTAlertX v2.10.3

I just did it this weekend and imported a bunch of QSOs into MLDX and then updated the info in them with callbook, uploaded them to QRZ and LOTW automatically. All worked no problem.

I did see that WSJT-X creates a log file too, I did not try importing that one just used the one from JTAlertX.

Hope that helps!

When I copy the file wsjt_Log from one PC to another
The original Remote computer Windows 8.1 say it is an AEOMI file,

Then if I past this file into my Windows 7 computer it say it is a .adi

WSJT-X does create a log file.  I know where it is on a PC, but not on a MAC. (or, am I missing something?)

I have imported this log into several programs.  If MacLogger can't handle it, you might want to ping Don Agro at DogPark.  I'm sure he can resolve it in moments.

BTW, you should update to RC2 as the protocol changed a bit.

http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx-doc/wsjtx-main.html


The log file wsjtx_log.adi is updated whenever you log a QSO from WSJT-X (but note that it can also be erased from the file menu). You can append or overwrite this file by exporting your QSO history as an ADIF file from another logging program. Turning Show DXCC entity and worked B4 status off and on again will cause WSJT-X to re-read the log file. Very large log files may cause WSJT-X to slow down when searching for calls.

Might this question be best answered on the WSJT-X forums?

BTW, I changed the post from a problem topic to a question because this isn't applicable to FlexRadio products.
