In 2003 Peter (PH1PH) and Simon (HB9DRV) created Ham Radio Deluxe as a simple Rig Control Program, it quickly grew to be so much more. In 2011 they sold HRD to a group of hams who intended to sell newer versions as a paid program, but making the promise to keep the old version free forever. It was announced in August of 2013 by a small blurb on the top of the archive page that all copies of the free version would be removed from their site on September 1st. Taking up the offer listed on the site inviting hams to host the files on their own website you will find below the last versions of the free software available for you to download. I recommend you try the latest version first, and work your way back if you experience any issues.
Please note I can not offer support for the HRD software below, I am only offering it for download as a convenience to the Amateur Radio community.
No known official manual exists for version 5 of HRD, but here is a copy of a Preliminary Manual for 5.21.
