Ham Radio DeLuxe – Update To V6.7.0.323

Here is what is included in this release:

Bulk Callsign Lookup – this feature will allow you to select multiple QSOs in your log and perform the callsign lookup function on them.

You will be able to choose whether to fill only empty fields or fill all fields in the QSO.

If your enabled lookup sources have data to fill those fields, it will do so automatically.

This will be very helpful for those who import logs into HRD Logbook from other programs.

This feature will be perpetually available to customers whose Software Maintenance and Support expiration date is beyond the release date for this release.

Additionally, the following improvements are available to all Ham Radio Deluxe customers:
– CQ US Counties award tracking initial version
– ICOM IC-705 added
– FTDX101D/MP antenna switch added
– Google Earth Pro integrated to Logbook and Satellite Tracking
– QSL labeling fixed for Brother and Dymo label printers
– ILGRadio shortwave database again supported
– Outstanding items in Logbook Lookup Pane fixed
– Daylight savings time issue with Satellite Tracking fixed
– Fixed issue that prevents activation keys from being deactivated

Update JT-Alert 2.16.17 – 06-12-2020

Chang Log

Important note regarding FST4 mode: FST4 support is only partial.

 Accurate FST4 B4 checks and FST4 logging are fully supported.

 There is no Alerting for FST4 DXCCs, States, Grids, Prefixes, etc.

There is no reporting of FST4 activity in the Mode Activity window.

 Includes Callsign database file version 2020-12-06 (2020-Dec-06)

New Features:

– Callsigns Display Grid: New online for text messages indicator, a filled square, can be shown in the top-right corner of the Callsign display. See the “Windows -> Text Messages” section of the Settings window.

– Logging: New option to ‘Log USA District “DC” as State “MD”‘. This option is off by default. If enabled “DC” based stations will have their State converted from “DC” to “MD” and logged as “MD” regardless of the value returned from XML lookups and previous QSO lookups.

– Command Line Parameter: “/myid=” a user defined string that will appear in the status section of the JTAlert titlebar text. This parameter is not used internally by JTAlert except for the status display.

– WSJT-X Multicast UDP: Due to the unrelaibility in automatically determining which network interfaces are being used by WSJT-X for multicast UDP, JTAlert now has an explicit setting to indicate if WSJT-X multicast UDP is using a loopback interface. Ensure that the “Settings -> WSJT-X UDP Multicast on Loopback” menu is ticked. This applies for WSJT-X 2.3.0 -rc2 and later. The setting is ignored when using WSJT-X 2.2.2 and earlier.


– US State Alert: “Consider DC as MD” setting moved from the “Rebuild Alert Database” section to the “Alerts -> Wanted US States” section of the Settings window. This setting is now titled ‘Alert “DC” as “MD”‘. When this setting is enabled, all “DC” stations will alert as “MD”.

– Decodes Windows: Online for text messages indicator symbol changed from a filled circle to a square.


– FST4: Callsigns not being displayed in the Callsign display and decodes not being displayed in the Decodes History window..

–Decodes Window: Fatal error when changing the “Highlight excess DT” threshold value in the Settings when the Windows regional-settings utilizes a non-dot for the decimal separator.

-Text Messages Window: Incorrectly being show at JTAlert startup despite the “Receive text messages …” option being turned off.

Swisslog For Windows – Update To V5.100C


  • Corrected: when entering QSOs with an existing station working in a new QTH locator and both locators had 4 digits (existing and new), no new HomeQTH was created. This caused setting the new locator to previous QSOs!. This issue affected specially /MM operations from different locators. Please review your latest QSO!

  • Corrected: LoTW synch: process stopped during the Import QSO/QSL step and Swisslog became unusable.

  • Corrected: saving QSO with world map open: world map is refreshed automatically to reflect DXCC/Gridsquare changes after saving/deleting a QSO. In certain computers (specially with Windows 7) saving a QSO could take about 15 seconds if Gridsquare field was different than NONE or having CAT button enabled. Now the saving procedure has been improved drastically and it’s faster in all cases.

  • Corrected: panel for propagation mode and satellite name fields: panel was automatically hidden when transceiver control was not used or started. If CAT is used, the button to enable this panel will only work on these scenarios:

  • when editing QSO

  • when adding QSOs on 10m or higher and propagation mode is not SAT
  • when propagation mode is SAT and band is 10m, 2m, 70cm, 13cm or 23cm.
  • Corrected: Exception EAccess violation error when closing Swisslog and the LoTW synch window was open.

  • Corrected: reading from Callbook databases: if QTH locator is wrong it won’t be copied and no error message will be displayed.

Ham Radio DeLuxe – Update To V6.7.0.301

  • [Enhancement] Add “Comment” Field to the dropdown for “Filter” (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] Filling in a Call in ALE and Hit Enter takes long time to be written to the DB (WA9PIE)
  • [Maintenance] copyright Date not updated (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] ALE “Start” time is not being properly reset when the user has set it to “Set by User” (WA9PIE)
  • [Enhancement] Add option to include Comment field from prior QSO to be included in callsign lookup (WA9PIE)
  • [Maintenance] New and altered IOTA data in Logbook (DOUG)
  • [Enhancement] Add support for Yaesu FTDX-101D/MP (DOUG)
  • [General] What is the difference between Logbook’s Comment field and DM-780’s Remark field? (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] Cannot connect to DX cluster when the user has selected a callsign to use that contains a slash character (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] Order of callsign lookup methods are not saved when re-ordering them in “Enabled Methods” (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] Additional callsigns with prefix that do not contain a number are not showing in My Station (WA9PIE)
  • [Bug] Lookup while in update mode overwrites QSO date/time (WA9PIE)

Swisslog For Windows – Update To V5.100b


  • Enhanced: HomeQTH handling for QSO partner: when QTH locator length differs (i.e: JN11 vs JN11AI) no new HomeQTH will be created if changing QTH locator but Maidenhead is the same. In order to make HomeQTH names more clear when importing QSO, instead of using HomeQTH1, HomeQTH2 etc when some data changes, now Swisslog will set the name of the first data changed in the file to import (the same way Swisslog does in the QSO Entry).
  • Corrected: Callbook buttons in toolbar: callsign was empty most times or the profile displayed was from previous entered call.
  • Corrected: Logbook view: custom filter for date field: was not possible to filter because a “” is not a valid date error was displayed.
  • Corrected: Make DX announcement window: this window was not closed automatically after sending the spot.
  • Corrected: Transceiver control: the auto start option didn’t work if using OmniRig v2 causing user to start it manually.
  • Corrected: Transceiver control window: was always positioned in center of the screen ignoring user latest position.
  • Corrected: Tools / Update award information: Date type mismatch in criteria expression error message.
  • Corrected: Update country table or statistic database: Authentication failed error message when starting Swisslog after downloading these files. Swisslog was unusable afterwards.
  • Corrected: World Map: bands for DXCC/Grids were always set to All/None and Mode to All ignoring last values set by users.
  • Corrected: Access violation error message when exiting Swisslog.
  • Corrected: Satellite operation: changing satellite name didn’t set focus to callsign field.
  • Corrected: Added Satelllite name field for eQSL realtime logging and eQSL sync.
  • Updated country table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Erik, EI4KF.

Swisslog For windows – Update to V5.100


    • NEW: Enhancements for Rotor control:
      • Now you can set bands handled by the rotor. The “Turn antenna” function implemented in the QSO Entry, DX Cluster windows or Band Maps will only work if transceiver is tuned in any of the selected bands (transceiver control must be started).
      • Up to 4 rotors supported by using PstRotator! Swisslog will be able to select the corresponding rotor automatically when changing bands on the transceiver. Please read the chapter Rotor control in the Swisslog help!.
    •  NEW: Enhancements for satellite operations:
      • QSO entry: added a button to activate / deactivate panel for propagation mode and satellite name. You can activate / deactivate this button also with Ctrl+Alt+S. These fields are specific for 10m and V/U/SHF bands. In order to avoid setting a propagation mode or satellite name when working on bands lower than 10m, If transceiver control is started and this panel is activated, Swisslog will deactivate it automatically if one of the following conditions meets:
        • if propagation mode is SAT and you change bands other than 10m, 2m, 70cm,13cm or 23cm (satellite bands used for uplink).
        • if band is lower than 10m
      • World map: added a SAT button to show only DXCC/Grids for QSOs made by satellite on the selected bands/modes.
      • When activating the panel to display the propagation mode and satellite name fields, now Swisslog sets the last content assigned on these fields.
      • Selecting a propagation mode different than SAT will clear satellite name automatically.
      • When selecting SAT it will recall latest satellite name used.
      • When selecting a satellite, propagation mode will be set automatically to SAT.
      • After selecting any propagation mode or satellite name, focus will go automatically to the Callsign field.
      • Added Sat Mode and Sat Name fields in the Previous QSO / New QSO listing in the QSO Entry window.
      • Added: HO-107 and RS-44 to satellite list.
    • NEW: Tools menu: added options to update the statistic database and country table to the latest available. Swisslog will release a message at startup when a new country table/statistic database is available. So no more manual operations to update these important databases!
    • NEW: CW Type: now Swisslog will save current QSO if found one of these sequences on macros: ~[lgs] or `[lgs]
    • NEW: Users retrieving data from QRZ/HAMQTH/QRZCQ, WAZ and ITU zones will be read from the QSO partner profile (if assigned) if Geographical Coordinates field has been checked in the Field Copy Instruction in the Callbook Cd / Internet databases tab.
    • NEW: Logbook views > Update QSOs with data from Country Table and/or Callbook Cd / Internet databases: if you use internet databases you can now set the QSL Manager field. This option extracts the first valid callsign found in the QSL INFO field. Very useful to set QSL manager after importing QSOs from a contest program. QRZ is the recommended option to get the best results (XML subscription needed!).
    • NEW: Export to WSJT-X: added a field to select the Callsign to export (callsings defined in MyQTH). Leaving this field empty will select ALL your callsigns.
    • NEW: Tools > Update awards information: added “Update ALL and shut down computer”. Useful to leave this function working and shut down computer automatically when finished.
    • NEW: Transceiver control with OmniRig: Swisslog will generate a beep sound at transceiver control start up and when selecting a Rig in toolbar according these conditions:
      • Rig1: 1 beep
      • Rig2: 2 beeps
      • Rig3: 3 beeps (OmniRig v2)
      • Rig4: 4 beeps (OmniRig v2)

This is very useful for blind users or users having vision problems.

  • NEW: QSO Entry: The following shortcuts are available in the QSO Entry window:
    • Ctrl+Alt+B: if using a rotor interface and rotor toolbar is displayed, focus will be placed at rotor field to set beaming manually
    • Ctrl+Alt+C: activate/deactivate the CW button
    • Ctrl+Alt+R: changes rotor if using multiple instances of PstRotator
    • Ctrl+Alt+S: activate/deactivate the special modes (propagation) and satellite fields.
    • Ctrl+Alt+T: changes radio if using OmniRig (same as clicking on the Rig number in the transceiver control toolbar).
  • NEW: Confirmation message when closing: very useful to avoid closing Swisslog accidentally.
  • NEW: Added FT8DMC for membership panel.
  • NEW: Added FT8DMC statistic in C_SP11 field.
  • Corrected: Import QSOs: Longitude and latitude were checked during QSO importation and any mismatch caused Swisslog to create new HomeQTHs unneccesarily. Now longitude and latitude are not checked when importing QSOs to prevent this.
  • Corrected: Users from 9A, E7, HA, OM, S5: it was not possible to add QSO not in real time because a wrong date format error was displayed. Language of these countries uses blanks between date separator and needed a special workaround in the code.
  • Corrected: WSJT Band Maps: DT was not displayed when checking the View DT option.
  • Corrected: WSJT Band Maps: When a callsign was in the QSO Entry window, mode field was changing to SSB sometimes.
  • Corrected: WSJT-X/JTDX link: Accented/special characters in Name/Comments were not passed correctly to Swisslog.
  • Corrected: WSJT-X UDP settings: if Auto Start is checked in one section and program path was blank, a file explorer window was opened when Swisslog starts up.
  • Corrected: Transceiver control: file explorer opens continuosly when setting up HRD for the first time.
  • Corrected: Image viewer: violation errors when closing manually the image viewer window.
  • Corrected: Image viewer: when saving an eQSL card the filename was empty when should be set automatically to “call mmddyyyy band mode”.
  • Corrected: Callbook query: portable callsigns in other countries (i.e.: ZA/EA3GCV) were always searched for the home call. This caused wrong callbook information if this station had a specific profile for such portable callsign.
  • Corrected: when editing QSO from US, the State displayed was different from the one really stored in the database.
  • Corrected: Merging data from import QSO function: violation access error and conversion stopped.
  • Corrected: World Map: If CAT button was disabled, DXCC/Grid fields were always set to All/None respectively at map startup, ignoring user changes.
  • Corrected: some popups menus for Copy, Paste were only in English. Now it will be displayed in the selected language.
  • Corrected: QSO Entry: Missing label in the QTH Name field.
  • Corrected: QSO entry: Prev and New QSO listings: the Comments field was displayed as MEMO. Now you can see the contents of the first 75 characters of this field.
  • Corrected: Country table: WAZ was defined as zone 4  for US States FL and GA when is zone 5. At first start up of this version Swisslog will fix automatically this in all your QSO with these US States.
  • Corrected: IOTA statistic: added LoTW confirmations and some queries in the IOTA folder.
  • Corrected: Using ARS-VCOM as Rotor control: fixed COM port error while starting ARSVCOM
  • Updated country table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Erik, EI4KF.
