It is an issue with the latest version of HRD, Version 5.23 which very well may be the last free version. These problems did not occur with earlier versions of HRD.

For what it's worth, I am running HRD 5.11 and JT-Alert 1.6. I am not

(worst seen is maybe 5).

Subject: [Ham-Apps] JT-Alert & HRD Compatibility

I am using JT-Alert 1.6 and HRD 5.23.012
I have found two compatibility issues:

1) Editing/Updating any part of the the HRD logbook entry for a US QSO
results in the Country being set to blank. This only occurs for JT-Alert
QSOs with the United States. This may be because JT-Alert writes the entry
as United States of America initially, while HRD uses only United States.

2) If HRD Callsign Lookup is enabled (QRZ Subscription), it takes ~20
seconds for the update to complete. This only happens on the JT65 QSOs and
only if Callsign Lookup is enabled. This happens about 95% of the time, but
not every time.

Not sure where to point the finger, JT-Alert or HRD, but the issues only
occur with the JT-Alert recorded QSOs.

I don't know how many changes (if any) will be made in the HRD Logbook
format when the paid version (6.0) is released, but there will likely remain
many users of the free HRD 5.23 version.
