Is anyone at Flex working with VE3NEA on an Omnirig file to work with the new RTTY mode?.  I looked in the current SmartSDR.ini rig file but only see support for DIG_L and DIG_U modes.

I looked at the SmartSDR.ini file.  OmniRig only has support for two digital modes; one for USB and one for LSB and these are mapped to DIGU and DIGL respectively.

You can modify the SmartSDR.ini file to use the RTTY mode for DIG_L by substituting ZZMD09; with ZZMD30;

Peter - if you're asking because you'd like to use it with Log4OM logger, be advised that you'll need to substitute the ZZMD30 for ZZMD07 in the DIG_U mode command because that is what Log4OM will pass through Omnirig. At least until the author of Omnirig can be convinced to support RTTY. Be aware that Log4OM will NOT select RTTY for you as the modeto log either, so you'll need to select that manually and then probably hit the lock icon on mode. I've found once I modified the command in the rig .ini file that the mode does not "stick" any longer for RTTY, but changes to CW (oddly). All of this needs work and the support guys for Log4OM are well aware of the issue. Hope this helps others.
