Ham Radio Deluxe is an indispensable helper for radio amateurs. The program assumes the functions of "logging" and transceiver control. The Ham Radio Deluxe graphic shell consists of five "standalone" modules: Logbook (Logging), Rig Control (Rotor Control), Rotor Control, Digital Modes (Digital Modes) and Satellite (Satellite Detection). To work with the receiver, it must be connected to the COM port beforehand. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine the connection. They are especially common in older versions of Windows. In such cases, you may need additional utilities to debug and diagnose COM ports.
Ham Radio Deluxe already has preset profiles for working with radio models from Ten Tec, Elecraft, Yaesu, Icom, Kenwood and other manufacturers. The program supports the ability to connect simultaneously to up to ten transceivers and saves its own log for each connection. Logs can be exported as separate files.
Previously, Ham Radio Deluxe was distributed free of charge, as it was created by an "amateur for amateurs". Starting from the sixth version, the program has grown into a commercial project and is now paid for. However, users are offered a trial period for which they can easily decide on the purchase of a license.
