OmniRig with Ham Radio Deluxe
- I've looked for a "Bridge" for OmniRig and Ham Radio Deluxe and I've
not been happy with what I've seen. What I needed was the Logbook
window to follow the current band/frequency/mode so that when I add
contacts it automatically pulls the Rig's data.
I've tried splitting the serial port and it works for me but with
some ill side-effects due to the way HRD polls the serial port. The
side-effects included erratic band switching and invalid data in the
Logbook which are rather nasty side-effects requiring a level of
attention which is not always possible.
The solution for me was a program that connects to OmniRig and
updates the HRD Log Add window in the background. The nice thing is,
no added serial connections are involved so everything behaves very
nicely. This solution is working great for me so I've uploaded it for
others who might want to use it. You can download it from my web site:
P.S. OmniRig from the developer's side is incredibly easy to use.
Great job and thank you Alex!
