I assisted Simon Brown to develop HRD for seven years but when the program was sold and became a commercial entity I started looking for a worthy replacement.
Six weeks ago I found LOG4OM which is written by a brilliant and enthusiastic Italian programmer and radio amateur Daniele Pistolatto IW3HMH and I was astounded at how far he had progressed is such a short period of time.
Fortunately Daniele was happy to have some assistance with developement so my good friend K7PT and I have joined forces with him to drive the software towards being one of the top FREE ham radio software packages available.
The latest version of LOG4OM has now been released here http://www.pisto.it/wordpress/log4om-en/
Here are the release notes for fixes and new features implemented since the last Beta release

We have five very minor issues to resolve before we start our program of adding new features.
Our policy is everything stops if a bug is identified and untill that bug is resolved we will not progress a new feature, this way we keep right on top of any user issues.
