    • Great Product
      I am a 86 year old op who has severe hearing loss.  I can no longer comfortably operate Voice or CW.  Most all my operating has been on the digital modes for the past few years.  I spend most of my time on FT4, but  use some other digital modes as well.  I have been using HRD for many years and have had to call for assistance a very few times.  I love the ability to be on FT4 or other digital modes and have HRD do all the logging, looking up call signs etc.  The Logbook is really good.  I am still learning as I use the software.  Looking forward to getting the next update.     73  Les

    • Great Ham Radio Control Suite
      I've only been "hamming" for 11 years, having begun the journey at age 71. During a visit to am ham radio dealer, about the time I was getting my ham feet wet, an employee there suggested HRD for logging. I had no other, so I purchased it. As I was cautioned, the program(s) definately have a learning curve, however I've concluded that the benefit far exceeds the burden. As my experience broadened, I found I used more and more of the HRD features, and any time I found I was lost and unable to find my way via the online guides, HRD Support was always able to redirect my efforts and get me back on track. I cannot imagine playing radio without the Ham Radio Deluxe Suite of Programs.

    • Knowing HRD
      This is just what I think and does it matter, I think so. I have been using HRD for years, back in the days when it was free. I would also like to say that I'm NOT computer savvy. I didn't grow up with computers and didn't have time to learn what computers could do for me. Now that saying, I just love SDR. Do I get along with them, sometime and sometime not. What I would want to see is a help pages that was so simple even us old guys could understand. Slow and simple! Another thing that would help is to be able to talk to some one on the phone when a problem or just a question comes up. I don't mind waiting a day or two, having to email or text a question is a real pain. A real person is what we are looking for. I know you have the world to take care of, and we are so glad you are out there for us. I know I'm not getting all that HRD has to share with us. I like what you do and I hope to know more about how HRD works. Keep up the good work.

    • Great with room for improvement
      I'm a long time users. Many years and radios. Using a computer directly connected to the radio is nice. The HDR Alert has changed the game for me. My log has really improved. Bravo on that one! I now use HRD Logbook and Alert as my primary.

      Improvements. (1) remote operation really must include audio. (2) the spectrum scopes are weak (3) remote HRD should connect directly to radios that have built in servers. Such is Icom 705, 7610, 9700. (4) DM780 should include FT8. SDR-Control has it built in.
      HRD is great software with room for improvement. I use it almost every day. I will continue to renew and love the fact that it keeps getting better.

    • Great product, great service
      I was using HRD since it was freeware and it was a collection of great software. A few years ago, it had some ups & downs but the product now is terrific. Many of the bugs have been fixed and some good new features have been added. I've only had to call support once, and the tech stayed online with me until everything was fixed, and then spent some time with me asking questions and showing me how to improve my use of HRD. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the database upgrade soon.

    • Great sowftware suite!
      I never cared much for HRD, ans there were a lot of bugs. Then when it was taken over I decided to give it another try, Things started to work. All the little bugs got fixed. Since then the stuff they have added, Making it easy to integrate outside programs right into the HRD system.



      It gives you a complete software suite that allows you to control every aspect of you radio. I've found things out about my 7300 than I never knew about playing with it's menus. They are adding new features and improving old features at a fenominal rate. I THINK I bought my first copy about 6 or 7 years ago. I have seen a lot of improvements in that time and make sure I keep up my yearly updates so I can take advantage of any new feature right away! I now have nothing negative to say, Unlike the old buggy version that turned me away from it many years ago. The support team is great. Any issues I have had, have been my in-ability to follow instructions! Support staff usually can help me fix any problem by email or phone in minutes and they are always friendly I HIGHLY recommend this suite as it has most anything you will need. If it's not there, put a bug in their ears and next thing you know it's there!

    • Fully Comprehensive Ham Radio Software Suite
      Been using HRD since 2006 and have to say in my honest opinion it’s the best stable Ham software on the market. It has every conceivable feature available and integrates well with WSJT. Loggings’ automated with Digi modes. Printing labels for QSL’s is another great feature. Great informative website and excellent customer service. I wouldn’t use any other logging software. Recommend 100%.

    • Long lasting relationship since Simon Brown first version
      A long time ago I looked for some software to control my IC-706MKIIG and have PC's logbook. I choosed HRD by Simon Brown. Yes, it was what I needed and got in love. Many years as a freeware. Since that time things changed significantly. I bought IC-7300, IC-9700 and finaly IC-7610. I had to go to paid version of HRD. No regret. Everything works fine. Last month I had to change notebook with W7 Pro, cos my Logbook failed. But I have backups, so restoring was question of minutes. Thank you HRD!
      What I like the most? Click to cluster record, TRX switches to requested band and frequency and "voilá", I am there. If there is anything unclear, I can find anwers on YT. So HRD, keep up to maintain software actual. I stay your customer for next times.

    • I Really Love This Software Package
      I first started using HRD a few years ago. I found it very easy to set up and have it working with an ICOM IC-7300, and IC-9700. I've made over 4K contacts since. I use it for phone and digital contacts. The auto logging for the digital modes is so convenient. I have never found a need to look any place else for a different logging program since I began using HRD. I've now become interested in making satellite contacts, and HRD has me covered there too.

      I have used this SW since before it was a commercial product. I have also done the yearly maintenance, though I have only used it once. That one time my issue was quickly handled by support on the phone.


      I highly recommend it. I am not a daily user, and love that it is so intuitive and I do not have to go through menus on my IC7000.

    • HRD 6 is all that I need
      I'm just an old-time rag chewer and HRD 6 has come a long way from the days of the free HRD 4 & 5. It's easy to control my rig from my PC to suit the propagation. It's easy to make adjustments instead of turning knobs on the radio. The logging system is easy to use and maintains previous QSO's instead of using the old paper logs.

    • Ham Radio Deluxe: Logging software and a whole lot more.
      Once you install Ham Radio Deluxe, you're in for a real treat! Logging contacts is just the tip of the iceberg with this software. Being able to track satellites, decode and transmit using CW, PSK, RTTY, and other digital modes are fantastic features. You even get SSTV. The spotting cluster is nice as well, if using a beam, you will see the direction that you will need to rotate your beam to get the best signal. Ham Radio Deluxe also has contest modes built in. I have used Ham Radio deluxe for a few years now and I still find things that I didn't know the software was able to do. Some of the other nice features that I enjoy is the logging software uploading my contacts automatically, as soon as the contact is logged. For 100 dollars, you get a lot of features and they are always improving the product with new and\or stream-lined features. Love it.

    • Ham Radio Deluxe w/Support Purchase
      Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) provides software control of my YAESU FT-450D HF Radio. I have asked HRD Software Support to help with clearing an incorrect setting in the HRD License Manager. Digital Master 780 and Logbook are used every Start up.
      My primary interest is DX with WSJT-X modes using FT-8. I use HRD Digital Master 780 to communicate digitally CW (SSB), RTTY 45 (AFSK), BPSK-31, BPSK-63, and MFSK-16 modes during ARRL/Field Day, Winter/Field Day, and other Tests. Additionally, I listen to daily ARRL Bulletins modes to discover conditions for DX QSOs. I also use an external modem to Key and Communicate - Microphone (USB Audio CODEC / Speakers (USB Audio COEDC) allowing control over TX/RX Audio Levels to prevent over modulation (splatter) and distortion.

      I have had HRD for many years and realized how powerful it really was not only for Rig Control, but also for Satellite Communications and lots of Digital Modes. The DM780 section for Digital is constantly being updated to keep up with the latest Rigs!
      I also use HRD to interface with 3rd party digital software...(WSJT-X) again...no problems all my contacts are logged into the HRD logbook!

    • HRD, A quality product
      i have been using using HRD for many years going back to when it was free. I have been using the paid version(s)
      for several years now and have watched it evolve into a great asset for Amateur Radio Operators.
      I recently had a major issue with HRD in which i sent off several Tech Support requests that i got several suggestions
      to try, unfortunately none of them work. I got a call from an HRD tech who logged into my computer with my permission and he immediately found several issues in the program, he corrected them and since then HRD has been running flawlessly.
      Outstanding Tech Support.

    • HRD essential here
      The deep menu functions on my Yaesu FT-950 are significant. The parameter adjustments are difficult to reach by the radio's menu keys. Fortunately, HRD rig control allows me to easily set up an array of sliders for those parameters. Functions such as noise blank levels, power output, digital noise reduction can quickly be trimmed.

      The logbook application provides all of the necessary features for record keeping and access to LOTW as well as contest format reporting.

      Digital Master provides excellent operation of the digital modes through my stations sound card interface.

      Best of all, upgrades are provided consistently after the initial purchase via HRD's download. Buying the support is a no-brainer.

    • An up-to-date product from an outstanding team
      I have been using HRD software since 2013. Over the years, the improvements have kept pace with the state of amateur radio in both direct ways (including support for new radios and modes) as well as indirect (improvement in logging, use of electronic QSO verification sites, etc.). In the past few years, communication from the owners has increased to include periodic updates about new features and enhancements as well as future plans. I don't know of any other company in the amateur radio world that does that.
      Another big plus of HRD is that it has so many users that third parties build their products to be compatibility with HRD. I can run WSJT-X under HRD to interface with HRD Logbook. If I am contesting, there is a bridge that allows me to use HRD suite of products (logbook and digital master) with W3FJP contest logging software.

      I have had HRD for quite a while & it still serves me well. If it could fulfill some of my other needs like, putting up antennas, chores around the house, yardwork, etc. would be nice. Maybe in the next update...

    • I have been using HRD since 2007 and love it.
      First, I never thought I would be using the log as much as I do. I have over 4000 QSOs in my HRD log. I initially used DM780 extensively with PSK31. I got my DXCC with over have of the counties reached via PSK31.

      Probably the one item that convinced me to renew support every year is the fantastic support that HRD supplies. If anything goes wrong on my system they are right on top of it, no matter how simple the issue is. Over the years they have kept expanding the features and many of them I don't use. Only in the last months I have gotten into mode dealing with Satellites. It is fantastic.

      There are many other features that I don't use. For instance I don't have a beam antenna, yet I was able to get my DXCC with a vertical and OCF dipole. It's the fact that HRD enables me to work many different modes successfully and log them and simply add them to ARRL's Log Book of the World.

      I love the system and highly recommend it.

    • customer support great
      While HRD is a big, complex program, and as a casual user, I get messed up now and then, but they have always been excellent to hold my hand through the dumb things I generally do. They have personally shown me a couple of tricks and things that I was doing the long, hard way.
      On the slightly negative side, they can be a little slow to return calls. They always do, but, come on, this is a small company with customers world wide, therefore they may call them any time at all. It is always 5:00 some place where they are running HRD on the air.

    • For Digital Mode Operations - Easy, Fast - Lots of FUN
      I tried other products and found that HRD DM-780 is easy to download and get on the air.
      I now switch bands, modes and tune up in under 1 minute.
      Lots of digital modes. Mores than I can name here.
      Thousand of contacts made.
      Logging a QSO is easy as 1 click.

      All of my digital awards certificates are displayed on my QRZ page.

      Customer support is OUTSTANDING!!!
      Friendly, courteous, explains everything, very helpful, on the few occasions I have called.

      In my opinion, the best value for your dollar to get on the air with digital modes.

      I had an issue installing an update. Unfortunately I don't remember who helped me but we got connected and within less time it takes to reboot my computer he had my problem solved. It had to do with a registry entry. He knew right where to look. I'm a techie myself so what he did was perfectly suitable to let the latest version function. Great background on the product. Excellent support in answering my questions. He pointed out a few new features as well.

    • Over a Decade Later I'm Still Using HRD
      The truth is HRD is better than ever thanks to PIE and his colleagues. I loved the shareware version, but am very glad I upgraded to the commercial software when that came out. It serves my needs perfectly within its capabilities. It is not and never will be a contest logger, I know that, but I've got N1MM for contests; for everything else HRD is all I need. That said, like anything, it is not perfect. The much awaited band scope for the Icoms turned out to be a huge bust. That could be (much) improved and should be. The program is beginning to look a little old as well. And there are other things that need to be brought up to date. OTOH, the labeling is finally working perfectly for me. Also, it's been a long, long time since I've had any crashes or other misbehavior. Bottom line, there's plenty of newer software out there...but none of that has turned my head. I'm sticking with good, old Ham Radio Deluxe!

    • Easy - Fast - Fun Way to Play on Digital Modes
      Changed over to HRD with DM-780 after having problems with other digital programs. No extra cables, no extra virtual ports, nothing else needed and I am on RTTY, PSK, FT8, FT4, Contestia and a host of other digital modes, all with just a couple of mouse clicks.

      Full Rig Control from the software is outstanding.

      Logging and uploading to LoTW, QRZ or others with just a click, could not be easier.
      How many awards do you have?

      It can't get easier than this.

      Support team is 100 % USDA GREAT!
      So much bad advice on You Tube. Yes, some of the stuff works the way a YouTuber shows you.
      But there excess, no need for the extra cables they say you need, etc.

      The tech support team will optimize your setup in minutes.
      They very helpful and as we say in Boston, Wicked Smaaarrt.

      I highly recommend HRD with DM-780 to everyone.

    • Ham Radio Deluxe - What Else?
      I have lost track of how many happy years I have been a user of Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) It was provided initially by Simon G3ELi whilst living in Switzerland and it was but a few year later taken over by the team in the USA. Over the years, even though no longer free, it has been my number one for radio. Yes I have had minor problems but a quick contact with the HRD team has provided the solution either direct or by a later update. I could not survive without the logbook which links with many other radio bits and could not be bettered.

      My main interest is digital modes where it excels, especially accepting add-ons, but happily accepts CW, SSB records and linden with qrz.com keeps a total record of the QSO which I upload to LoTW on a daily basis.

      The small number of times `I have been in contact with HRD Admin and Techy I have been 100% happy with their support.
      Long may they continue, well worth the money and I would be lost without HRD.

    • the best complete package for ham radio
      There are so many great features in one program. You do not have to use all functions, but can just use the one or those that are just necessary for what you are currently doing, eg logbook and rotor for FT8. Or one can use all the features when driving satellite traffic. Automatically uploading logs to other online logbooks is another huge benefit, and keeping track of what is verified or unconfirmed in the logbook is so easy and straightforward. Printing labels for paper QSL cards is another good thing.
      Personally, I thought that one can keep finding new things that the program can, or new way of using things.
      So all in all a great tool for radio amateurs ---------

    • Good investment for radio
      It is a very complete software that I use not too often for digital modes like the PSK31 and SSTV when there is propagation. Now I am trying to find out how the satellite mode works.



      There are fewer and fewer OMs doing RTTY or PSK, more FT8 or FT4.

      For my part, it is a fashion that does not attract me. I prefer to discuss by keyboard interposed in PSK.
      The software is very complex and I do not master everything, especially as my English is average. I don't understand everything and it takes a lot of fumbling to figure out how it works.
      The software is connected to my radio directly by the USB cable and it works fine. Too bad the user manual does not have an option in French.
      Otherwise I'm happy with my investment in purchasing HRD and when I use it it responds present.
      Good job from your development team. Thank you for what you are giving us. Keep going.

    • HRD Works pretty good
      I have been using HRD for over 10+ years. I wish the Logbook could be customized to allow how each field is arranged which would make data entry easier. For example I would like to enter Callsign, then tab to RST, then tab to Name, then tab to QTH, and finally tab to Comments section. It takes too long to tab to each of these key data points.

The digital programs all work well, lotw, Eqsl are very easy. I cannot say enough. I have used the program since 2010 and have seen great changes to make it user friendly. Most of the people i know in my area are now all using HRD and love it.

    • HRD is my shack runner
      I have been an HRD user since 2014. It has advanced quite a bit over the years and is constantly being improved. This software not only controls my rigs, provides many digital modes in DM780, but is also a great logbook. It can use either flat ACCESS files or SQL, parses data quickly, and has the ability to automatically upload all of your contacts to the many online loggers such as ClubLog and QRZ (LOTW is a manual process). Once configured, HRD logbook makes QSLing easy. Support has always been tricky in this industry/hobby where you have a huge group of users with an insanely huge hardware base and it can be daunting to have to deal with that on a regular basis. When nobody wants to read the manual before turning in a trouble ticket, I can see how frustrating it might become. I have been doing IT support for over 30 years, I get it. That being said, support has not been it's strong point. There is a huge user base and many forums to get help from elmers which is where I recommend anyone start when having issues. Above all, this is the best all in one package for Amateur Radio Operators and is a must have in your shack.

    • HRD is all you need.
      Starting as a radio amateur is not easy for newcomers. But with HRD you cover up to 90% of all modulations available in the amateur radio world. Everything from CW to digimodes. Logging program with award control. Contest program. I have been with this program since Simon developed it and have lived with all the bugs it has had, but ever since it became a paid program I have probably renewed my subscription so I always have the latest version. Seeing how the program has evolved and been perfected is impressive. There are many who think you HAVE to pay a license every year, but that's wrong. If you have paid for HRD you can use it without restrictions for as long as you want. But I am happy to pay for the program to evolve even more. The modes that HRD does not support, they make sure that they can import the QSOs from that software so that they also appear in your award and logging section. I can definitely recommend HRD to everyone.

    • Upgraded to include ICOM 705
      I purchased the annual update so I could use HRD with my new Icom 705 as the old version did not have that radio.  While I could have made it work using the 7300 profile, I decided to go ahead and pay for the support for the next year.  The program does a nice job of controlling the 705 along with the Kenwood TS890.  Using the satellite program, I am able to use the 705 to listen and track the ISS and other amateur satellites.   The doppler control works as good on the 705 ad it does on the 9700  A good overall program that over the years has been improved and support has always been excellent.   Keep up the excellent programming. 73

    • A few notes about HRD
      Ham Radio Deluxe is a very complete software to control almost all functions of your radio. It evolved from early free versions, to become a feature-packed, fully fledged radio control software. In spite of using it every day, though, I feel I have only scratched the surface of it and there are plenty of functions I will continue to discover day by day.

      One possible difficulty with HRD is exactly its complexity: being so configurable, an inexpert user may feel lost amid all the possibilities offered - at least this is what happened to me. Also, I have the feeling that the programs making up the suite have evolved incrementally, to the point that the whole lacks a sense of unity. Is it maybe time to review the GUI so that the user feels more in control ?

      A few isolated things I'd like you to improve on:

      - When a new QSO is added, I have to start entering the call sign, and only then the time: if I start with the time then the call sign, the software automatically defaults to the current time. In this period for a number of reasons I can't connect the radio to the computer so sometimes I record my QSOs on a paper notebook and enter them several minutes after they happened, and I have to remember the correct sequence. It would be nicer if the time did not change no matter when it is entered.

      - Searching a call sign among those in the database is sometimes difficult. A "find" function would be nice (if it already exists I was not able to find it...).

      - Finally, I really think it is about time to move away from Microsoft Access and use some more capable database...

      Thanks for your efforts to improve HRD !

    • Great Amateur Software
      I have used Ham Radio Deluxe since the early days and have been through many iterations. The new version is the best and only needs a couple of tweaks. I am a very basic user, not using rig control, rotor control, satellite tracking, etc. I use it 100% for logging and originally for RTTY, then some PSK31 and have sampled Slo-Scan TV and did a few CW contests using the CW function. Every function I've ever used has worked flawlessly. The HRD Logbook is one of the most "fluent" logging programs I've seen, interfaces well with DM780, and has been constantly upgraded for eQSL and LoTW. In the newest upgrade, though, the "Filter" portion of the logbook has been changed with the added "Apply" button. In my opinion that has turned the callsign search into a useless function. The old version was interactive at all times. Example: If one entered "2Z0" in "Callsign" it automatically brought up all the calls beginning with "2Z0". When finished, simply deleting the "2Z0" would go back to the full logbook. The new version requires entering the "2Z0", clicking "Apply", then perusing the list. When finished, you must delete the "2Z0", unclick the checkmark in the "Callsign" box, reclick "Apply" to bring back the full logbook. When actively working stations, it is very cumbersome. This is a very small detraction and most likely the majority of users do not use the search function as often as I do. Overall, this is an excellent program and I'm not aware of anything available to compete with it.

      I have been a HRD subscriber since the program was first made available by Simon HB9DRV. Over the years I have taken advantage of several other programs 'trial' offers. In every case I find HRD works best for me as it integrates all my operational needs into one package. The one clear advantage I see over other programs is the ongoing improvements and commitment to following up and correcting problems identified by the user community. HRD also interfaces well with my Elecraft station, Navigator interface and programs like MMTTY and WSJT-X . Recent updates also allow for quick and easy printing of multiple QSO report labels for QSL cards. It still the best program for me.

      There's nothing I can write about HRD that hasn't been said already however from a very amateur amateur it's worth every penny!
      Although the need for keeping a written log has long since been not a requirement in the UK I still like to keep a note of my contacts and having tried a few of the alternatives on offer I believe that HRD is simply best value for money.
      If you add up all it's on-board features plus the live support, should it be required, it's a no brainer!

    • Excellence in Radio Communications.......HRD
      Ham Operators who have not signed on to HRD are doing them self a great disservice.
      HRD is a well rounded highly tuned app that will excell your Ham operations.
      In 2014 I signed up with HRD started my DXCC quest to date I have 301 entity's
      This all due to the design of HRD operations.

      I really like your product. My computer took a dump several months back. I had to reload HRD and WSJT-x. I had to reinstall Windows 10. It was supposed to save the original files but Since it was a hard drive problem I think I lost some files. I had to download my logbook from LOTW. I would be nice if there was a recovery feature whereby previous logs/files could be retrieved from an alternate source. I did di it, it did work but it was not fun.

    • HRD and DM780 are great tools!
      I use Ham Radio DeLuxe and also the companion DM-780 for CW activities. When using DM-780 I usually also use Winkeyer USB, which was designed by the Engineer for use with DM-780 by the engineer who developed WK USB. There was a steep learning curve, but I've found that the hobby is all the more enjoyable when we learn from applying it. Once configured the way I wanted it, HRD and DM-780 are rock-solid performers.

    • Quality Product
      I chose HRD years ago as my rig control/logging program after reviewing every Windows-based program on the market. I consider it to be the 800 lb gorilla when it comes when it comes to the competition. It has worked very well for me and I've yet to find another program to get my attention. I've only needed support a couple of times over the years. HRD was quick to effectively respond. I am NOT an HRD fanboy. If I find something better, I will jump ship...but I haven't.

    • Excellent Product and Outstanding Customer Service
      I am a long time user of HRD and have enjoyed using a one source product for my logging, digital modes, CW decoder, DX cluster, and more. As I am getting older, my hear loss has given me issues while operating in the CW mode. I enjoy CW as I have used that mode as my main interest for over 50 years. The CW decoder or reader is a blessing to help fill in what I miss during a chat or QSO.


      A few weeks back I made a mistake shutting down my computer and thought I had damaged the HRD files. I submitted a request for help and within 12 hours had a full functioning HRD once again. Plus watching the service staff remotely update, clear, correct, and simplify my HRD gave me a free educational class on many of the features of the program that I did not understand how to use. Overall HRD has been my best investment in this hobby and will continue to be a blessing to help me enjoy amateur radio everyday.
      Thank you HRD

    • Don't Miss Out
      HRD suite of integrated applications provide effective CAT control tailored to your radio. I use main app to memorize favorite net frequencies, band plans, etc. Log integrated with QRZ for instant lookup by call sign. Also upload to ARRL LOW. I've used HRD DDE interface to HDSDR for spectrum/waterfall and click to tune control of radio. Also use HRD to control radio when running WSJT-X for FT8. Just upgraded rig to FTdx101MP. It's an impressive tool very reasonable cost. Have not needed support, but you want it to get updates.

    • HRD with Satellite Tracking
      I'm currently moving to a new QTH in Florida, while in my rental I upgraded/extended my HRD.

      I'm very happy with the Satellite Tracking using my IC-9700. I've also have the pass bands plugged into the software and I can't wait to get in my new QTH.
      I've made contacts here at the rental. This last upgrade was a real surprise utilizing the Satellite Tracking. Thanks...73

    • Excellent for rig control
      I use HRD only for rig control. I do not do DX or digital. Hence, much of the program holds no value for me. That is the reason for the reduced value rating. I have been using HRD for many years (early in the Simon days), watching as it grows.




      I would like seeing a simple version that is ONLY for rig control. It is certainly possible - merely divorce the DX and digital routines from the main program. If it is not a modular system, it should be. Thus affording this flexibility.

    • Great Stuff
      I'm finding it so involved I can't really give an expert opinion.
      Every day I find something I didn't know about.

    • Excellent Ham Software for OMs and Newbies Alike
      HRD is easily installed and configured alike. I have been using it for many years, back to when Simon was still updating the product, and used the free version for some time. It has come a long way since that time thanks to new developers, tech support, and owners/managers. I use it daily, if the radios are on then HRD is on, and it will connect both my FTDX-3000D and my FT-991A simultaneously. There is a bit of learning curve, but good documentation and forums as well as Facebook are all very helpful.

    • Seems to be a good purchase. Not easy to get help learning to use it though.
      I have owned the software for a few years, have never learned to use it very well HRD does not help much, I did get assistance from other owners who were a big help but it did require a lot of time and communicating to get the help, I got discouraged and let it go for some time am now trying again there have been a lot of changes and I am able to communicate using the software and my computer and rig having lots of problems guess I will have to figure it out as good as I can as I can think I will stay with it this time though.

    • HRD
      I've been using HRD for at least 7 years out of my 11 year ham career (if you want to callvit that.
      At first I was intimidated by it but over time it became simple to use.
      I'm mostly a digital operator and I use DM780 for RTTY & PSK modes.
      It was easy to integrate WSJT-X & JTAlert logging into HRD,
      The award tracking makes my life easy, no paper or spreadsheet tracking needed anymore.

    • HRD Software
      Great product I have used HRD for Six years and has improved each year. Saves me time on my logs and uploads contacts to LOTW, QRZ and EQSL logs. I like the PSK Reporter too.  Easy to switch between frequencies and modes as well.  Lots of other features.
