More information is needed. For example: how does this new mode participate in award tracking?

Doing some testing to determine the impact of adding a mode to import/export.

While you can only create QSOs with modes that are included in HRD...

The bottom line is - Logbook doesn't do any mode validation on import or export. You could literally create a QSO for any fictitious mode and import it into HRD Logbook and it will import without error or modification. Likewise, you can export the same QSO with a fictitious mode and it will export correctly. (I created the ADIF file for import from another program... and I read the exported file with a text editor.)

The fictitious mode correctly shows up in the digital modes awards tally because it is neither CW nor Phone (which is how the award is designed).

These tests indicates that it is harmless to add modes. And... several are missing - besides FT8.

I'll work on the XML for these.

I've updated these files for the modes that are missing in HRD from those in the ADIF Modes enumeration.
