    I find it absolutely nasty that the owner of FT8 will not allow it to be used by the thousands of people all over the world that use HRD becase it is an inclusive program with many features. Nasty. And to make it worse the FT8 users are pushing the PSK31 users off frequency because it causes so much near channel interference.

    Er, FT8 integrates very well with HRD. Select HRD as your rig type and put in the correct port number for logging and it just works.

    Well, I may have to backtrack. Just a bit. I should have said WSJT-X (the original software for FT-8) works well with HRD for most radios. The "naughty" modifications are less stable. Also I have heard of minor problems using the WSJT-X -> HRD -> IC-7610 combo. But for everything else I've tried it is pretty slick.

    HRD and WSJT-X both have issues, but their interoperability is (generally) not a problem.

    I run WSJT-X with HRD, works great. IC-7300, IC-9700, IC-705.

    I assume what you want is for FT8 to be built into DM780. The HRD folks wanted to do it, but JT said, "NO."

    He'll let you use the code, OM. BUT NOT SELL IT. It's open source. JS8Call is one of the programs built upon it.

    If you are unhappy with the product, maybe you should ask for a refund. Oh wait..........
