Congratulations Robert... Good work...
I would like to tune the radio in nearly the same way one do it
with the freq. wheel.
My sugestion is to implement the freq. tuning by using the
mouse wheel. most of the computer mouse has that wheel and lots of
software started to use it. By turning it up or down one could
change the frequency up or down. (as you scroll the browser)
The aspect of the delay should be taken to slow down the rate and to
synchronize the PC with the Omni...
One must try to see if it is possible, If it is it would be great.
As far as I recall you use visual C++ or Visual basic, I assume that there
should be a macro or function supporting the mouse turning wheel.
