Simon and everyone else who has worked hard on the development of
DM708, I just wanted to say thanks. Ham radio is my winter hobby and
for 7 months out of the year I don't power on the rig. Back in
February or March of this year I read about the development of DM780
and I was thinking it certainly can't be any better than the original
HRD. Yesterday I d/l the beta program and started configuring the
program, and now I am a convert. For multi-function digital modes,
I've used MixW for the past 4 years, but I removed that shortcut and
its now replaced with this program.
There are only a few areas I'm confused about. One is the Video ID
feature. I tried to embed a CQ string but it didn't send it for some
reason. I looked in the help guide but didn't really see anything in
there about its use. From the original "Superbrowser" I miss the image
of the skull while its loading. I also miss the feature of clicking on
a QSO and having it go back to the regular browser to call them. I
also wish on my closing "73" macro, I'd be able to wipe the TX window
after logging the contact automatically within the macro.
Again, thanks for the development of this fine program. I'm certain
I'm going to find some more tweaks and also look forward to mode Hell
when its available.
