Tampa FL, St. Paul MN, Pittsburgh PA - June 27, 2012

HRD Software, LLC announces the release of Ham Radio Deluxe 5.23.

HRD developers have been working to dramatically improve the callsign lookup
function and address some maintenance items. HRD 5.23 and the preliminary
manual are on the web site ready for download.

Mike Carper, WA9PIE, said, "The feedback from our beta-testers indicates
that this release is the best version ever of the Ham Radio Deluxe Suite."
This version of Ham Radio Deluxe features powerful new options for callsign
lookup. Users can set the priority of lookup sources like QRZ.com, their
logbook entries, CD databases, and Logbook's country index. "Our users
provided us valuable insight about how they're more confident in the data in
their logbook than the CD and online data sources. It only made sense to
allow them to choose the priority," Mike added. Users are also prompted when
lookup sources don't agree about the country location of stations they are
adding to their log. This enables the user to make a choice about which
country should be logged. The company invites hams to visit the company's
YouTube channel for a demonstration of these new features.

Rick Ruhl, W4PC, said, "Erik Gawtry, KC0WWC, really showed his stuff in this
release. I feel Erik is one of the best programmers in the country and I
think the hams will be amazed at the magic he has done for this release.
Hams also have been key players with both their input and support of our new
company. Every hamfest that we attend we meet so many new friends and

This concludes development of the v5.x product roadmap. The company has
continued development of v6.0 and intends to release it by the end of summer

Version 6.x will have many new features which will include FSK support, a
new QSL and awards tracking interface, improved cluster filters, label
printing, and the Super Sweeper in Digital Master. Super Sweeper will allow
multiple signals to be decoded in a single window.

A discounted pre-buy of version 6.0 is being offered for $59.95. This
includes technical support for v5.2. Those that have purchased or will
purchase the 5.X support will still get one year of support from the date of
the 6.0 release.
