Eric... On the basis of your post below, I downloaded HRD v.3, installed it
and played with it for the better part of the afternoon.  I could only test
it on my Jupiter with respect to the N4PY software which I've been using for
over a year.

I think HRD's two best features are: it's free, and it's bundled with a
superb PSK31 programme. The actual HRD control programme, I found was
somewhat cumbersome to use and feature sparse compared to N4PY's, especially
as regards CW, my favourite mode.

Anyway, thanks for bringing HRD back to my attention Eric -- it is a good
piece of software and it is free!  Free notwithstanding, I'm still pleased
to pay a small price to get a control programme that has many more (read
useful) features than the stand-alone hardware provides, rather than fewer
features for free.

Hi everybody...

First of all, this is only an INFORMATION, I have nothing to do with the
company hereunder. This is only an information that might be useful for
of us.

I'm using with great results the HAM RADIO DELUXE v3.0 software to control
my Tentec Orion. This a great product has it seems to be very useful and
"bugless" !

The installation process is clean and professionnal as well, using the
software is friendly and it works 100% with the Orion !

The best of all, this software is absolutely FREE for download from the
author's web site. Simon Brown, HB9DRV is doing a great job for free, it
absolutely amazing.

With all the software we have to use (and buy) for our radio activities,
pretty sure we could spend all of our money just buying this or that
software ! Maybe the "FREE" version of an application is not as complete
the "NOT SO FREE" version but it's worth to try it !

Just download the ZIP image file from the HB9DRV website and go for it !



I respect the guys who are doing business with software... but I respect
also those who provides very nice solutions for free  as well ! ;-)

All the best,

Eric, ON6CV.
