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