I checked this evening - the Omni VI+ seems to work fine with
RCKRtty here. I have my Omni on COM1, and I used the 9600 baud rate
(matches xcvr, of course), non-parity, 8 data, 1 stop. I used ICOM and
hex 4 as the address. I think his software comes with one of the parms
set differently from what we usually use - the stop bit, maybe? Check
these parms. I also reduced the time required for updating the
frequency/mode to 3 seconds. 10 seconds seemed like an eternity!
Hope this helps!
