- Feb 18, 2009Hi Eike,
You are correct, OmniRig is an engine that allows any program to easily
control the radio, simultaneously with other programs. The developer who
want to use OmniRig in his program just has to write a few lines of code to
create the OmniRig object, e.g.,
OmniRig := TOmniRigX.Create(Self);
and then read and write the OmniRig properties - e.g., to tune VFO A at
7,005 kHz, he would write
OmniRig.Rig1.FreqA := 7005000;
OmniRig can also be used to control the COM port directly, but this makes
little sense because then the developer would need to know all CAT commands
of all radios. OmniRig hides the complexity of the commands from the
programmer behind its simple interface.
I do not have a complete list of programs that use OmniRig. Some of such
programs are listed below. Of course, all of my own programs support

thank you for your answer. In the meantime I found client.exe on your
page and downloaded it. But I have a lot to learn untill I can answer
a question of a friend of mine. I'm a newbie on OmniRig...
When I'm right OmniRig is just an interface between an other programm
which needs a CAT control and a transceiver. It seems that a
programmer who is interested to use the OmniRig has to write an
'OmniRig' interface and to put it on the list of its maintained
transceivers between ICOM, Kenwood et.al. Or is it possible to use
OmniRig as a virtual COM-Interface without any change in a program
e.g. LOGGER32 or HRD?
Is there a information which logprograms are available to use OmniRig ?
