Is there any mean to run multiple JTAlerts binding to each WSJT-x's running?
Thanks to FT8, Low band activities are very high and I am enjoying multiple WSJT-x operation for 80, 40 and 30m.  Currently, I am using JTAlert for one instance of WSJT-x and the rest of WSJT-x's are subject to eye watching and not so effective - I cannot examine 2 windows in detail in 15 sec.
How other multiple WSJT-x users are managing the operation?

You can simply dbl click the Jtalert icon on your desktop for each additional instance of WSJT-X or you can also setup the auto start within Jtalert here is my setup opens (3) WSJT-X and Log40m plus (3) Jtalert. It works very slick Jtalert handles the logging interface between WSJT-X and Log40m on all 3 slices and I run slice 4 as ssb and use Log40m window to log contacts on the fly. And the flex will auto switch TX to whichever slice that needs to transmit. 

add to the wsjt-x parameters for slice 2 & 3
 --rig-name=Slice_B 
 --rig-name=Slice_C



optional if you use Log40m for logging. In the setup of each WSJT-X you need to set the UDP server port number different on each instance and Jtalert will handle the rest . Here is my setup

Slice A: UDP 2237


Slice B: UDP 2238


Slice C:UDP 2239

Thank you for your advice.
I could now run 3 instances of WSJT-Xs and JTAlerts and jump to any of three bands for transmit.  I am waiting for v2.X CAT supporting Slice: TX slice - I think v1.X supports it already - for Logger32.
