    HRD Software, LLC today celebrates its one year anniversary of the close of the deal with Simon Brown, HB9DRV to acquire the rights to the Ham Radio Deluxe Software source code.

    In 2011, Mike Carper (WA9PIE) formed a partnership with Rick Ruhl (W4PC) and Randy Gawtry (K0CBH) and approached Simon about buying the rights to HRD. During the 7 months of negotiations, the partners kept high hopes that they would be able to work a fair deal for both parties. The deal was closed on October 12, 2011.

    Since the acquisition, HRD Software, LLC has continued to release the 5.X versions for free and expects 6.0 to be completed soon. Over the last year, the developers have fixed over 30,000 minor bugs, over 1,000 major bugs and added 20 items of new functionality into the 5.X free version.

    I am a subscriber to HRD. Wouldn't have it any other way. I have seen the strives and improvements you have made over Simon's great endeavors. I will not rush you for a release date. As the old adage goes, "serve no fine wine before its time". Question, it your are willing to release the answer, will DM780 contain the JT65 protocol? Gosh, I hope so! Keep plugging away and I am more than willing to wait for your fine finished product! ;)

    Great. The last HRD/DM-780 rev to feature Simon and the guys splash screens runs fine 24/7 on my remote receiver. The latest free version DM-780 constantly locks up and requires Process Kill.

    A Feature?

    Congrats! Man, it's hard to believe it was a year ago.

    I can say as a long time user of HRD from 2006 (before DM780, it was PSK31 Deluxe then) the latest free version is the best ever. Keep up the great work! :)

    As a long time user I have to say I am disgusted with the results of the free versions I have had nothing but problems the program locks up constantly If I can even get it to start. I am now using Windows 7, as compared to previous using XP but every computer made now a days has windows 7. Sorry until I can get the free version to work I wont spend a dime on what was once a great program, now it is a source of frustration.
