Me thinks there is too much whining here. Considering that RT Systems sells a basic modified hyperterminal to program radios at $40-50 a clip - HRD is a steal. I paid my money and I look forward to V6. You may find better loggers, better decoders but as a fully integrated suite I consider it an excellent buy. Just because these things are "built for amateur radio by radio amateurs" does not mean it is free. I can't believe all the crap that is spewed forth because a few guys try to take this program to the next level albeit for a fee.
