    Can someone answer Al's question? I'd also like to get the spots from HRD showing up in SSDR/Maestro. Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried running Slice Master, and it didn't work. Sometimes it would crash, sometimes it would crash the whole computer, sometimes it would appear to run but not do anything. Every time I tried it, it trashed all the settings in the other programs, and I had to go through the entire set-up process again to get everything back to normal.

    HRD doenst know how to send spots to the radio.  Slice Master does.  The trick is to get both Slice Master and HRD to look at the same same spot sources.  There are a few options here depending on your goals.  I like to use VE7CC's CC User program.  It can connect to multiple spot sources.  Then, I configure both HRD and Slice Master to connect to it.

    Slice Master does support, though it's spot source mechanism, a connection to HRD Logbook.  When you us it, Slice Master will query HRD Logbook for addition information about any spot it find.  The information is then used to determine a "needed status" for the spot which in then used color the spot for display on the panafall.
