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
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
