The purpose of this email is to give you some status on a couple things. I'll try to be brief.
Software License Server (Ham Radio Deluxe v6.6)
Last month I sent a newsletter letting you know that we are in the process of replacing the software license key server. This is the platform that has been in-place since 2012 that delivers and activates your software activation keys.
We're in the final stages. We have just a couple steps left. Right now, we're testing the process of automatically creating keys for all existing customers. There's just one minor item left to resolve in this process and that piece is done.
When that is done, I will send an email to all newsletter subscribers with their new key and the instructions on how to use it. This will be done concurrently with the Ham Radio Deluxe v6.6 release. I still expect this to happen within the next week.
A few facts about this change:
Panadapter Display (Ham Radio Deluxe v6.7)
We have the panadapter display for capable ICOM radios ready for beta. We can't start beta on this until we get the above mentioned 6.6 release out.
This panadapter feature will be available to customers who are within their Software Maintenance and Support period.
To explain this a bit further, because these two topics are linked. It has always been our policy that:
Hopefully that isn't confusing. I'm trying to keep it as simple as I can.
We have plans to complete the panadapter display for capable Yaesu, Kenwood, Elecraft, and other radios. We also plan to add support for external panadapters, such as the SDRplay, for radios not capable out-of-the-box. This is one feature. It will be locked as a single feature.
We've got some other exciting things planned following the panadapter display. I'll save that for later.
