Setup the software for an IC-736 and it will work fine.  On NA Ver 9 you 
should turn off Cde.  This function when enabled sends the frequency data 
every time the VFO changes.  Well... as it turns out, Icom in it's wisdom 
(lack) ran the DTS and RTS on the same line.  So basically collisions can 
occur.  By turning off Cde, you let NA do the polling of the radio (which 
occurs every second anyway).  Other programs don't seem to have as much 
problem with the Icom radios and Dave (K8CC) has fixed the problem in the 
most recent version that I am currently beta testing.

Would I be correcting in assuming that CT has not added a control for the Omni-VI, and it is necessary to use the emulation mode.
