I was all excited about the CQWWCW, I had made a cable to
connect the OMNI to the computer running NA 10.23. I would
finally have a band map to use during the endless S&P runs.
In short it doesn't work (very well). The radio changes
bands with the computer, and the band map was great for the
few hours I had it connected, but I had lots of bugs:
1) The VFO dial would lock up (digitally not mechanicaly)
every few seconds. This was very noticable as I tuned
across a band.
2) The keying would skip out. This has never happened before
3) Everything went back to normal when when I disconnected
232 plug from the back of the radio.
And yes I was using a custom made cable as per the NA manual
