Ham Radio Deluxe | New Customer Welcome Message

Announcement | New Customer Welcome Message

With our new software license platform that we migrated to in July 2019 (Soraco QLM), we now have the ability to send out welcome emails to new customers. These welcome emails contain some good information about their purchase, their key, and obtaining support.

I'm re-posting it here for those who are existing customers and would not have received this welcome message.
