    After reading through most of this I have decided never to try HR Deluxe. I'll continue with Log4OM. Easy install and great manuals and help.

    What is hard about setting up HRD? If you only want to use the logbook which is comparable to using Log4OM you create a CAT port for slice A, set HRD to Flex SmartSDR and choose the CAT port you created and check the box to automatically start Logbook. Same steps as Log4OM.

    Now if you want to add DM780 integration then it is easier than adding WSJT-X.

    Please contact me direct if you have questions. A lot of what was posted was to do more than a simple logbook to follow a slice.

    Thanks for the info David, there is no way that I would spend $100.00 for HRD.
    I have been using Log4OM since March of 2014 and have always donated to Daniele Pistllato's **** fund as he calls it. I donate to many programs and other sites that take donations well over the $100 that HRD demands.

    That is fine that you use Log4OM and donate to Danielle. My point is setting up HRD Logbook is no more difficult than setting up Log4OM v2.7. It is a very good free logbook. DX Labs also is a very good free alternative to HRD. That is why there is vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream. Not one flavor makes everyone happy. log4OM v1 with the TCP connector was a PITA to set up. Prior to Log4OM 2.7 clicking on a cluster spot while using Hamlib interface would change RX filters to undesired filters. It is good that their development team is improving with each release. i personally like the DXCC awards tracking in HRD vs Log4OM. Again personal choice. I like the worked status indicator display in the cluster window also. i do have Log4OM 2.7 installed and test each release that comes out. Dave wo2x
