    It is strange that when HRD is mentioned the Thread goes down Hill.

    Don't seem to mater what Forum Category it is posted in.

    Why is that ?

    "It is better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt".

    I do appreciate low/no pressure ads - (if that is what you want to call this!) I believe there has been a lot of thought and hours of code writing and testing put into HRD (Ham Radio Deluxe, I believe it is called.) However, I will probably not be investing in it, even if it was $60, it would b above my present budget. Sixty dollars would feed my 12VDC generator for a lot of operating - at least a months worth of nights or stormy days... But for the HAM who wants "the BEST" (or beast if you prefer) than look carefully. I personally use N1MM, and only for basic logging (overkill) and contesting (I can understand it).

    I think Rick should sell HRD for the same amount as he is old, on a birthday deal like this.

    That must make it about 30 Dollars. ?

    My Birthday is the 30th. The software that I write is still Free, so no discounts.

    Happy Birthday Rick.

    C'Mon now, where are all Da shills:)? LOL, seriously, you might have better luck if you were to do as Gigaparts or others do and have a giveaway:)
    Better and more inventive ways to drum up temporary funds to get to those hamfests:)
    Like a half off sale for example:) Why not just say buy ten of them and get one free?:)
    OR donate a copy to schools or other orgs.
    There are many ways to increase sales buy advertising, doing it here as news just makes it look like a Craigslist Advertisment:)
    Not being critical, but you need a better approach to advertising IMHO.
    Good Luck , I mean that seriously, just remember if you suddenly want more and more for a product folks will back away, you might sell that million dollar auto to a few posers but when the dust settles you will have lost a chunk of your former faithful customer base.
    Like the kid selling lemonade for $1000 a glass, only has to sell one but at the expense of the rest of the consumers of his product.
    And the time spent trying to find the pone person to sell a glass to is also a waste.
    I wish you luck Rick, also Happy Birthday, I also feel one should not be afraid or take offense at constructive criticism whether it be consumer or seller:)
    I mean anyone who is an Aries will succeed if they do not get impatient, I do, sometimes I do not succeed because of the traits an Aries born person has or said to have anyhow:)
    But I digress, Take care, Michelle:)

    LOL, Don, I will let you be the first, then I gotta get mine, the rest can get thiers later,in the tradition of ham radio every ham for themselves, and the person next to them of course:)
    I think if some of the schools had a copy, it might spark interest in some of them when they see the puter running the rig or vice versa:)
    73, Seriously good marketing is everything from what I recall they said in media classes I took:)
    But if you ever saw the movie, Zohan, they had this store in NYC that a bunch of ISraelis ran, the name was "Going out of Business" and they were always going out of business:)
    Sorry about sloppy typing this morning was on the fly here and wanted to comment:) 73, Hope you have a good afternoon, sincerely Michelle:)

    1. Any School Club with 5 or more hams get a copy free for their school club callsign
    2. We do have contests, and did one back in Oct, the winner got a free copy of HRD for life.
    3. Michele, as one of my old rock and roll tee-shirts says...You weren't the first and you wont be the last... ;)

    HRD already has a huge paid userbase. We're getting close to the size of the paid userbase as DX4Win has.... The total number of free and paid registered users is way over 100,000 now. We have 7 hams with us and the 2 other owners.. that makes 10, and this time last year we had 4 of us (the 3 owners and Erin).

    BTW, Erin (KJ4MFO) was in a minor wreck yesterday (tailended and not on hf!). Im taking her to the doc today at 6 to get her back checked out. Lina, her 7 year old, is ok and all checked... but Erin's back started to ache today, so we're gonna be safe and have it checked.

    Sorry to hear Erin is in a bad way. I hope she is ok.

    Great start for HRD it sounds like. Keep up the great work.

    My Birthday is tomorrow, and I want to be the first Birthday winner.

    Have a Great Easter Sunday.
