667Building a BRIDGE between OmniRig and DXLabs Suite....
- Feb 16, 2008Alex, I received this reply from Dave, , earlier today:
RE: [dxlab] OmniRig once again...
I looked at the Omni rig page at http://www.dxatlas.com/OmniRig/
The Visual Basic example shows how to determine the rig's TX and RX
frequencies and mode from OmniRig, but does not show how to set the
rig's frequency or mode. The Pascal example does set the rig
frequency, but when I tried its equivalent in VB the rig would switch
from VFOA to VFOB and back but not change frequency, whether I
specified the frequency in kilohertz or megahertz with a string or
numeric argument. I could find no documentation further describing or
illustrating OmniRig's programmatic interface.
With such documentation, I could relatively quickly assemble a simple
bidirectional bridge that would allow you to use OmniRig instead
Commander, just as the HRD Bridge lets you use HRD instead of
Alex, is there anyway you can supply Dave with some more examples, or
info. He is very responsive to his user base and a Bridge between your
two software environments would be very useful to both groups.
