Anyone using this rig with HRD?
Hey, I am using the 891 with HRD. Also I use HRD to control the radio for FT8.
I'm a HRD user but don't have the 891. I do know that radio is supported by HRD though.
After your radio is hooked to your computer, all it takes is a few configuration settings and you're good to go.
Are you able to select LSB on traditional USB plan via HRD? It won't let me. It will also initiate my autotuner. Only two things I've noticed since trying it on HRD, earlier today.
Anything I need to look out for? Haven't tried any digital stuff yetị
No, HRD will not select it. You have to do it manualy...
I tried installing the Radioface program. It worked fairly well last time I used it, but now, it won't recognize the drivers. I think it's an issue related to HRD.
As long that your radio's baud rate and the HRD settings match, you should have complete rig control over VFO, mode, band, etc.
Digital modes will require some soundcard settings but the rig control portion is already set.
That just plain sucks. Lol, that's the reason I bought a copy of HRD. I had a coupon for $25 off, so I bit. Guess I should've researched the issue. HRD WORKS GREAT WIRH MY I-7200.
HRD tech support has done me well when I had issues.
Call them up and they'll work with you to resolve them up because that's what your paying for!
I imagine they are aware, just unlikely to prioritize this issue, since 95% want to select LSB on 11 meters.
Shouldn't matter, the software and radio should follow each other regardless of band.
The freeware Radioface program was written mainly due to the difficulty of selecting LSB. It is not working for me yet. I think HRD is conflicting with Radioface. I'm going to email the dev to see if he can help.
In the mode menu there is not an LSB or USB. You have to go in a different menu. The setting is in the "F" key. Then menu 11-07. It is called "SSB BFO"
I'm familiar with all that. Was just hoping that HRD had menu press for LSB.
i just use the memory channels to store some of the (am and lsb) frequencies then you can just vfo from there
