I believe I have a program - somewhere. It came off a shareware
floppy I picked up at a computerfest. It gives an on-screen display
like the Omni-V front panel. I tried it and it works, but it
was not very user-friendly, at least to me. If I remember correctly, you
cannot use the rig control buttons; you must use the program, or it
crashes out. There is no obvious way to interface it to a logbook. 

Naybe the fact that the Omni-V type of interface is not just difficult,
but also obsolete, means that no-one has any real motivation to
support it any more. Its more trouble than its worth ... it would have
to be a labour of love.

BTW, the manual and the original promotional literature/spec sheets,
etc. for the OMNi-V  stated that the RS232 port was included. I
certainly bought mine on that basis. I think the port was an add-on
option only for the Paragon. The Omni-VI has a much more conventional
port ..
