I am a new Omni VII owner and the operator manual does a good job to explain 
menu and control but not much written about connecting this radio with a 
contest software. I use the popular Win-test contest software v3.18. This 
software includes Omni VII settings as 57600 8-N-1 with DTR (pin 4) Always ON 
and RTS (pin 7) always ON.
Win-Test will control the radio but not the opposite, if I changed band on the 
radio, Win-Test will ignore it. There is no frequency readout to follow 
frequency-cluster map.
Also Ten-Tec is unique to active cw in full break-in mode and it took me a 
while to send cw without a continuous carrier seen every software includes a 
PTT from the paralell port. I opened the mic connection.
Do I need another program to control the radio behind Win-Test or is it a know 
problem? One reason that I bought  a Ten-Tec for top performance receiver 
required during a contest.

Thank you, 73 Rejean
