Ham Radio Deluxe HRD QSO Forwarding Alternative
Here’s a slick way to bypass QSO forwarding and let GridTracker do the work. Also, GridTracker can do the heavy lifting when it comes to uploading to online logs like eQSL, QRZ.com and HRD.net. Here’s how…
Icom 7300 and Icom 7610
If you are using either of those Icom radios, I have screen captures of the Menu>Set>Connectors pages in the radios software. Most important are “DATA OFF MOD” and on the Icom 7610 “DATA1 MOD”.
Another valuable setting, “Unlink From REMOTE.” If you ever want to use two cables, one exclusively for rig control (CI-V cable) and another USB cable for keying, you’ll need to setup “Unlink From REMOTE.”
HRD QSO Forwarding
You don’t really need QSO forwarding if you are running GridTracker. In this post I will have GridTracker take care of logging into HRD Logbook.
On the radio tab we will be using Ham Radio Deluxe as the rig. On the Reporting Tab we need port 2237 enabled as shown in the screen capture.
GridTracker can log too many programs. I have used it while operating portable and using N3FJP ACLog. At home I am using HRD Logbook. It works beautifully. Here’s the screen capture and there is more detail in the video below.
This is a good alternative to QSO Forwarding.
I have a previous post on this, using QSO Forwarding: Downloading GridTracker for HRD and WSJT-X
