    Tampa FL, St. Paul MN, Pittsburgh PA – April 13, 2012
    HRD Software, LLC announces the release of Ham Radio Deluxe This is the 3rd release of software since W4PC, WA9PIE and K0CHB acquired the rights in November of 2011.

    Erik Gawtry KC0WWC and Rick Ruhl W4PC have been coding in tandem for the past few weeks and have created this version with more fixes and some new beta features which will be in version 6. This version 5.20 includes the beta for a contesting interface, a Cabrillo export and support for the Ten-Tec Eagle.

    Rick Ruhl, W4PC, said, “We decided to add the new features to give the users a taste of what we’re going to do in 6.0. 6.0 will have many new features which will include FSK support, a new DXCC awards interface, label printing, and the super sweeper in Digital Master. Super Sweeper will allow multiple signals to be decoded in the window formerly referred to as Superbrowser”.

    This is the first version compiled with the Visual Studio 2010 compiler. Rick and Erik have been working since version 5.11 to move the program from Visual C++ 6.0.

    The HRD group will be at the DX Convention in Visalia, CA on the 20th and 21st and will be in booths 108-109-100 at the Dayton Hamvention.

    HRD 5.20 is free, but will include a no charge upgrade to version 6.0 with the purchase of 5.X support for $59.95. The retail version of HRD will be $79.95 when it’s released at Dayton 2012.

    You can purchase and download the product at

    If you get an error "this application has failed to start because MSVCR100.dll" was not found, download and install the VC 2010 runtime

    Cool Beans.

    Microsoft would not let you distribute a complete package ?

    MSVCR100.dll ?

    Good Luck on your new product.

    This isn't our last 5.X release either.. always bug fixing.

    lets not run this thread into the ground with price complaints--another TOO long thread is all ready dedicated to that-besides--

    And no, $60 is not too much for this software. Neither is $80 or $100.

    Just a logging program like DX4Win is $90 and Logic 9 is $129.00, we have logging, radio control, digital modes, rotor control.

    This software is bargin priced.. I dont know where you guys get the idea it's overpriced.

    Please, no one is forcing you to buy it are they?:rolleyes: If you feel it is too much continue using the free version. This price issue has been hashed over so much it is like flogging a dead horse.
