Nobody is forcing anyone to use the logbook feature that is currently in the works. It's not about money. If you don't want to use it, then opt out. If you want to help it grow and test it out then post something constructive. Use HRD if you like it then. Nobody has a gun to your head.... You haven't even given it a chance to determine if it will become popular or not. It has been out for a few weeks. It seems to me that most of these "complaints" here are from people that either 1 - want something for free or 2 - are jumping the gun and not giving something the chance to "get up to speed" I am sure version 1.0 of Ham Radio Deluxe really sucked compared to today's version?
