Over 170 development requests were closed in this release cycle that began in early July 2019. In keeping with our 80/20 objective - 82% of the content was defect correction and 18% was enhancement requests. Significant changes include the following:

! NEW FEATURE ! Ham Radio Deluxe Panadapter Display is released in its initial phase. It was designed to work with compatible radios - ICOM IC-7300, IC-7610, IC-9700, and the Kenwood TS-890S. (NOTE: Compatible radios must have internal SDR commands that can produce data for software to consume. If you don’t see your radio listed here, the feature won’t work. This feature is available to customers whose Software Maintenance and Support expiration date is later than the feature’s release date.)
In Rig Control, two radios were added - ICOM IC-9700 and Kenwood TS-890S.

In Logbook, QSL label fonts can be adjusted, Brother and Dymo label printers supported, HamQTH returned to callsign lookup options, and the callsign lookup function underwent a complete rewrite. (NOTE: Please view the video on our YouTube page that explains the callsign lookup function - www.YouTube.com/HamRadioDeluxe.)

In DM-780, data controller errors eliminated and callsign lookup uses much of the changes made in Logbook.

The remaining changes span Satellite Tracking, HRD Rotator, software activation keys, general maintenance and performance improvements.
