The software is pretty comprehensive and offers tons of bells and whistles. The only bug with HRD and the DX-SR9 that was noticed is the Power button label text did not change to reflect the current power setting. This should be corrected in a future update. HRD is currently on sale for $10.00 off it’s normal price of $99.

The good news for DX-SR9 owners is that you can use HDSDR as a front end to Ham Radio Deluxe for tuning by enabling the HRD DDE interface within HDSDR. The bad news it appears that there is some issues with the DDE interface that won’t allow HDSDR’s “Enable Transmit Button for DDE” feature to work. The button will appear, but won’t put the radio in to transmit. The work around is to just use HRD to enable transmit. Best guess is that HRD’s DDE interface has changed some over the later versions. Maybe this will be cleared up in the near future.

  1. During my first tests I found some issues in the HRD main window:

    1. At startup the controls for MODE, AGC, VFO A/B,… are not updated.
    2. Switching VFO A/B works, but the buttons are still not updated.
    3. Switching TX POWER (High, Low, S-Low) works, but the button/dropdown remains on “High”.
    4. Tuning below 10 MHz is not possible (HRD display works but the radio does not follow)
    5. PTT does not switch to TX but switches off RX

    RF Gain (Preamp/Attenuator) would also be nice to have.

    But yes, nice that HRD supports SR9 now.

    1. Thanks for the additional information! I just did a quick check on the demo version, so I missed those details. Hopefully the authors will get it fixed shortly.

      Thanks again!

  2. what interface or modem is best to use to connect Alinco DX-SR8 with the computer or that has been proven through you?
