The "Updates" option was originally a popular feature in the Simon Brown versions of Ham Radio Deluxe. It was used to configure the option to check Simon's website at the configured intervals and inform the user when Simon posted a new update to Ham Radio Deluxe on his website. This was disabled in V6.0. Since it has been disabled, there is hardly a day or week that goes by where someone has requested it be put back in our versions so that users know when a new release has been posted on our website.

Since we only support current versions, it would be great for a weekly check
or just a check upon starting HRD
