Video Demo of WSJT-X Connected Directly to Logbook

For those of us using HRD and venturing into FT8, this is big!

Video Demo of WSJT-X Connected Directly to Logbook
Greetings folks!
As mentioned in the 6.4.0.886 release notice sent recently, we have improved the ability to integrate WSJT-X with Ham Radio Deluxe Logbook. Prior to this release, the use of JTAlert was required. Many customers enjoyed this method and tens of thousands of (FT8, JT65, JT9, etc) QSOs have been made with this method. We will still continue to support this method and the efforts of the JTAlert developer to continue and improve JTAlert.
With this release, Ham Radio Deluxe users can connect WSJT-X directly to Logbook and QSOs made in WSJT-X are automatically added into Logbook. This feature is called "QSO Forwarding" in Logbook. WSJT-X refers to it as "Reporting". We had many requests from our clients to provide this feature and I'm very pleased with how it works.
I have created a 7 minute video that demonstrations how to configure WSJT-X and Ham Radio Deluxe 6.4.0.886 to do this. The first two minutes of the video demonstrates the setup. In the remaining five minutes, I make a few FT8 QSOs and you can see them going immediately into Logbook.
The video is on our YouTube channel here: www.youtube.com/HamRadioDeluxe
Please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel to get updates on new videos added.
We also have a description of how to configure QSO Forwarding on our online user manual at: wiki.HamRadioDeluxe.com
 I hope you will take the time to check out this video and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Download the 6.4.0.886 version at: www.HamRadioDeluxe.com
I'll see you on FT8!!
