HRD DM780 - variations of the 73 macro

We enjoy working digital modes like PSK31 and RTTY using Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) DM780.  We are always looking for contacts using the Log Book of the World (LoTW).  DM780 comes with useful macros that are easy to customize.  



It is fun to close out a qso using the native language of the country where your contact resides.  Additionally, we find it helpful to let contacts know that we prefer LoTW QSL's.  Below are three HRD DM780 macros that we created to illustrate how encorporate various languages.  To use these just copy/paste the macro text into a new DM780 macro that you create.
