YES!  I ran a simple interface like Hank describes with my Omni V with 
the N4PY mod, and it worked VERY well.  I used it with WriteLog, but it 
would work with any good logging or control program.  All you need is a 
cable wired with the right pins on the right connector on both ends. I 
also used it with Ham Radio Deluxe.

Study the OmniV manual. For radio control, you only need the wires that 
go to pins 2, 3, and 5 on the DB9. To send CW, you also need pin 4 and 
pin 5 to the single transistor interface.

See http://audiosystemsgroup.com/HamInterfacing.pdf    This doesn't talk 
about the OmniV specifically, but the only difference is that the Omni V 
has the older style 25-pin connector. And, of course, set the 
logging/control program as Carl recommends.
