For HF I have been OK with LOG4OM and OmniRig. There are little issues but it's ok.
However,working satellites is a whole different animal! I cannot get LOG4OM with OmniRig to read both VFOa and VFOb. I can set RIG1 to VFOa and RIG2 to VFOb but I have no way of having a single RIG with 2 VFOs. Therefore all my Sat QSOs are incorrectly recorded as the TX and RX frequencies never match.
DXLab can read VFOa and VFOb but doesn't even have the Option to input GRIDSquare in the Log QSO window! Plus you have to click on LOG for each new contact. Whomever design DXLab tried to cram too much info in the Log QSO window and missed some basic stuff that should be there.
I am very frustrated. There isn't a single logging program that will manage the different VFOs from the Flexradio and trying anything slightly complex is very difficult. Any ideas?
Has anyone figured out how to have at least 2 VFOs with OmniRig? it used to work pre v1.6.....
If you go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Afreet\OmniRig\Rigs you will see the different configurations for radios.
For the SmartSDR profile it says:
SmartSDR command set modified 12Dec14 by W4TME fromSo maybe Tim would be able to help you modify it to suit your needs. One way or the other I'm guessing the fix would be in modifying this file. One thing to note is that Flex radios don't seem to like following the VFO A and VFO B convention that traditional radios follow, with all the Split and similar commands. This was explained somewhere and some good reasons were given but I don't remember where that was. Anyway it is evident in the configuration file:

If I create an extra slice besides Slice A, and then send the ZZFB; command in the TEST field of the Log feature of the SmartSDR CAT I get a ?; response.
However, if I use a third party program, like HamPort http://www.dxsoft.com/en/products/hamport/
And I click on VFO A/A to select VFO A/B something interesting happens.
First it creates an extra slice. If I only have Slice A it will create a Slice B. If I have a slice B already it will create a Slice C.
Second, SmartSDR CAT recognizes the extra slice.
And now, when I send the ZZFB; command in the Log window of SmartSDR CAT I get a response!
Third, Log4OM NOW reads the second VFO!!
However, any changes initiated from SmartSDR will not reflect in OmniRig.
If I close the slice or open it or change TX from one to the other NONE of that gets sent to OmniRig.
Maybe there is something here. Please take a look Tim, you are the OmniRig expert!
Salvador, if you've some question about DXLab or some problem about configuring it for the Flex, I suggest that you join the DXLab yahoo group, Dave (AA6YQ) the author of DXLab suite will replay to all of your questions and point you in the right direction.
In any case I just send him an email pointing him to this topic, so let's see if he stop by here to help you.
