Thanks Keith.

On the UDP Listener issue, several people have noted to me that they
couldn't get it to work.  It also didn't work for me at first.  I discovered
that I had only copied the main UDP file from the Zip archive.  The other
two files are needed as well.  As soon as I had all three files in the same
place on my PC and executed the main file, it all worked fine.

The other thing to realize is that the UDP Listener is not "installed", but
rather needs to be executed each time (operating session) you want to use
it.  When it is running there is a window open that confirms it is running

Is it possible that one of these things happened in your case?

Yes, I logged FT8 QSOs in Writelog during the ARRL RTTY Roundup.

However, I could not get the UDP to work to have Writelog "listen" for the
log from WSJT-X.

The only way I could get it done (after the contest was over) was to import
into Writelog the ADIF log created by WSJT-X.  Even that was a challenge
because Writelog imported everything but the QTH (State) column.

I had to manually enter each QTH (State) in the final Writelog log.  It then
recalculated the score.

It did show 45baud for the RTTY contacts and Digital for the FT8 contacts.
One log was submitted showing both types of contacts.

Please let me know if you logged FT8 QSOs with WriteLog in last weekend's
ARRL RTTY Roundup.
