  • Mantis #2745 - Consider dropping DDE Support

    Before dropping DDE Support (see Mantis #2745) will the HRD Logbook API and HRD Radio Control API be fixed?

    There needs to be some means of communicating between HRD and other 3rd Party Software.

    Agreed! Don't know how much, if any, DDE is used these days by 3rd party programs with HRD. But a really comprehensive API for Rig Control, Logbook and DM780 would be great. 3rd party programs and interfaces could make HRD even more versatile. Didn't I see a post somewhere a while back that a new API was on the to-do list?

      Logbook API code has been fixed and hopefully it will make it into the next release. I've been testing it and out of hundreds of QSOs only one failed, presumably for some other issue. It works great with JT Alert!

        Let's hope that the HRD Radio Control API is also fixed, the advice given here https://forums.hamradiodeluxe.com/node/34951 will not work.
