Ham Radio Deluxe v6.5.0.196

In this release of Ham Radio Deluxe, there are 97 individual updates to the software (plus 4 duplicates). By application, there are 26 in Logbook, 33 in Rig Control, 23 in Rotator, 13 in Satellite Tracking, and 7 in other areas (DM-780, setup, etc).

We resolved the three issues that were reported with the release – SAMCD error, installer doesn’t complete and left HRD partially installed, and we restored the 3rd party serial port capability.

In Rig Control, there are updates for the Yaesu FT-875D, FT-891, FT-897, FT-920, FT-1000MP, FTDX-1200, and FTDX-3000; updates for the ICOM IC-7300, IC-7610, and IC-7700; and for the Kenwood TS-990.

In the Rotator application, we have validated changes for the Portable Rotation rotors (thanks, Will), Yaesu GS-232A/B, and HyGain DCU. We have unvalidated changes for the M2 rotor family (feedback from M2 users welcome).

In the Satellite Tracking, we’ve fixed about half the things in the bug list for this application. I’m excited to begin trying it out with life satellite QSOs.

In Logbook, we resolved a number of rig control issues where mode was not tracked when clicking on spots. You can now save column widths in the DX Cluster. More performance enhancements were completed.

We made a number of changes to enhance the security of Ham Radio Deluxe. We now conform to the direct connection specifications for QRZ XML lookups.
