Forgive the stupid questions…
How are you connecting the SignaLink to the OVII?
Are you using a serial cable with the Omni?
What OS and computer are you using?
If I were to hazard a guess, I’d think you have a COM port issue courtesy of
Microsoft and their device manager in Windows 10.
I’m using SignaLink with my OVII and it works flawlessly. I’m also using
Windows 7 Pro and an ancient Dell 780 desktop.
There is a FT8 group on groups.io, you might considering joint it and posting
