I will echo what Rick said. I still use HRD5.0 Final Free Swiss Build.
If you cant find it I will help you. During the 1st year of US ownership I swore
I would never re-invest in it. I was one of the 1st to buy in and one of the
1st to ask for a refund. I tried to make it work for one year, to no avail.
The only thing missing is a Cabrillo file generator. I am still trying to find an
easy way to handle that.

Re: Helping a friend

Jerry-
I vote for Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) and Simon's last free version (5.24.38) is still available at a number of web sites.  Google "old free version of Ham Radio Deluxe".  It includes DM780, and while it does not have all the bells and whistles of the current paid version, it STILL is a great program.  Log book, rig control (not available with just a Signalink - need something like microHam USB), virtually all the digital modes except the WSJT-X stuff, alarms - audio through your computer sound card (070 member and LONP download files are available on hamclubs.info).  Logbook has ADIF converter that works FB for 070 Progress Checker uploads. 

After HRD changed some players and got things straightened out a couple of years ago, I went ahead and bought the new version (which during the "troubles" I swore I'd never do).  IMHO it is well worth the one time fee. Support is included for the first year, but don't bother with the "annual support subscription." Once you have it up and running, I have found no need for support.  And the updates, bug fixes, etc are free to licensees.  There are a TON of users out there and an internet plea for help generally answers any problem without needing their technical support.

So my vote is get the old version, use it for a while, and if you like it upgrade to the paid version.  My 2 cents.  Hope you get him up and going in short order.  Look forward to working him - 070 #437 definitely qualifies as an Old Time 070er!

I run the FT 817D and FT 450D here on ALL digital modes,
both use the same SignalLink I/O cable and patch headder.
My PSK 31 software is DigiPan 2004, before DigiPan was G3PLX. Yes tried ALL the others, $$ and free on win XP thru win 10, always came back to DigiPan. Only drawback .. lousy logger .. history lQQkup is great but field and format just awful, N1MM+ solved all my problems.  N1MM+ is also the best thing that ever happened to Field Day.

If anyone is using the Yaesu 450D and has any suggestions on FREE software or any ideas of using the 450D on digital I’d appreciate your comments.

Hi Matt,

 

Thank you very much for the honor.  We really did not do anything special except try to be available when we passed thru a rare grid.  Kathy and I both had a lot of fun working 070 grid hunters and other 070 members in our travels.  We are sorry that propagation did not workout for some of the other members looking for those grids. 

 

Thanks and 73,

Hi Paula and Fr. Richard,

 

Looks like will be in DE from 11/19 thru 11/24.  Probably some ops mobile.  I will have a 20 mtr dipole and a wire vertical feed with my autotuner.  So we can probably try 20 mtrs and possibly 40 mtrs.  Can try higher bands if open.  Most operating will be after 7:00 pm EST, but could be earlier.  Will post when I am on the air.

Thanks for your kind words.  The XYL and I enjoy activating grids as we travel along.  The XYL gets worried when we don’t work some of the regulars.  Do you still need DE on 40 mtrs?  Will be up there for Thanksgiving week.

Today I went thru grids that most did not need.  Barry wanted DN20 in NE and MO.  Just before the grid Barry was pounding in, no trouble coping.  A minute or two later when I hit the grid he was barely readable.  On the other side of the Mississippi in DN20 MO did not copy him at all.  Best signals were coming from the South.  Had several long QSO with stations in FL.  

Looks like tomorrows grids, unless real-time changes,  are:  EM37, EM47, EM46, EM45, EM55, EM54, EM63, and EM62.  Heading from Springfield, MO to Birmingham, AL.  

If you want to follow our travels send me your personal email and I will send the Google map of the routes.  XYL plans the trips out months in advance and we know the route and where we are staying well in advance.  Don't want to post on group since they can be large.

Not much to report for today.  Propagation seemed to be favoring the East Coast.  Had a couple of nice rag chews and gave out grids to a couple of people.  Tried to work VA7GEM when in EM64, which he wanted, but no luck.  The entire trip thru the part of the grid on I22 took only about 12 minutes at 75 mph.  

Tomorrows grids are nothing special but if anyone want a Q I will be on for a bit in each grid.  EM63, EM71, EM70, EM80, and EL89 my home grid.  

Thanks to Steve who I need as a proof reader so I don't think I am in DM when I am in EM, hi hi.  Will be back in FL tomorrow evening and then the planning starts for the next adventure.
