      Dave- Got it. The baud rate is supposed to be 1200. That was it; changed
      baud rate, verified interface plugs, downloaded the OmniRig Client app and
      it all just fell together.

      Working fine now, albeit no signals. I think there's another issue as it
      seems crazy that I see signals when using CW at 6k bandwidth but nothing at
      3k. Weird.

      BUT, working now; switching freqs and doing fine. My web page at:

      Thanks all for the help,

      Hi again.

      Have you managed to control it from the OmniRig client, not with Faros
      running, just that client program (that invokes the OmniRig system behind
      the scenes.)

      I also see there is a IC725 and IC725a in the list of radios OmniRig knows
      about, I guess you've tried both 'drivers'?

      If none of that works, does anything else successfully control the radio
      via that serial adapter, nothing to do with OmniRig or Faros. Ham
      Radio Deluxe (free) for example?

      As it's an Icom that uses a CI-V bus AFIK, is the radio's "address"
      setting correct for OmniRig?

      Looking in the two driver files, I suspect that the 725 file uses address
      28, and the 725a file uses address 3E, that's about the only difference I
      can see. I don't specifically know the 725 it has to be said, and I can't
      remember much detail about the CI-V bus protocol at the moment either..

      As always, one step at a time.
