I noticed that FRS worked with Fldigi to solved mutual problems.

Is FRS working with other companies to solve mutual issues?

Ham Radio Deluxe has similar issues as Fldigi had with Smart CAT; when it comes to starting the integrations of SmartSDR, CAT and HRD.

This not an HRD problem alone:  This goes for other software integrating programs such as MixW etc...

The answer is yes.  We work with other third-party software developers.

Just to let you know, the issue with CAT connecting with Fldigi was a Fldigi serial port initialization timing issue and not one with SmartSDR CAT.  All of the changes were made to the Fldigi code.  We had to update the RigCAT files to accommodate the Fldigi software change.

Thanks Tim,

I have HRD working very well. Or at least to my satisfaction.  

However,  on start up; I  just like to get it where there would be very little to no intervention from me: When I forget to click on CAT. Otherwise, I have to start over; so HRD can handshake with CAT IP address. 

Keep up the GREAT work you guys are doing. 

One happy customer!
