Thank you for trying Band Master. I tested it only with my TS-570, it is
nice to know that it works with other rigs as well.

I developed a rig control engine called OmniRig that solves exactly that
problem, and released it as freeware available to all programmers. The
programs that use OmniRig have concurrent access to the transceiver and do
not interfere with each other. Another advantage of OmniRig is its
extensibility: to add support of a new rig, one just creates an ini file.
Band Master is my first program that is based on OmniRig, more will come in
the future. Another program that uses this engine is HamPort by Alex RZ4AG.
All other developers are welcome to join the club.
OmniRig is available at http://www.dxatlas.com/OmniRig
