At the request of several people, I am posting a summary of positive
responses to my original message below.  All programs mentioned have
a WWW page and have a demo version available.  I have not personally
evaluated or compared and do not personally endorse any of the
software.  The following comments were provided by other readers of
this reflector:

1.  DxBase, as the name implies, is oriented towards the DXer. It
fully supports the Omni V in sending to and receiving information
the V.


2.  Log-Eqf is more of a general logging program with the ability to
DXCC and handle contests. Log-EQF will retrieve frequency and mode
from the Omni V. It will also change bands.


3  DX4WIN is a full featured logging program and will allow the user
configure his own radio driver.  

The OMNI V protocols can be obtained from Ten-Tec or several readers
of this reflector.
