will land in the Program Files\Afreet\OmniRig folder.
Start Band Master, click on Tools/Settings/Miscellaneous, then click on the
RIG Control / Configure button. The OmniRig configuration dialog will open.
Enter all parameters of the COM port, exactly as specified in the operating
manual of your radio. Once you are done, the Radio icon on the status bar
will change its color from red to gray, indicating that the radio is on-line
and functioning properly.
