FTDX101 and Omnirig

Post by G4POP » 05 Nov 2019, 09:05

Please be aware that there is an error in the Omnirig ini file for this radio which caused the frequency to be incorrect.

Until Omnirig resolve this FTDX101 users should select the FT991 ini file which seems to work fine.

There is a problem using the 991 file also. Using this ini file, the LOG4OM will not read the mode correctly from the radio unless you put the call in LOG4OM using the cluster. I found this out the hard way after I made 6 or 7 QSOes and they were not the mode I was using. Also LOg4OM locks the mode box when CAT is used, So you can't change the mode until you log the Qso. I tried the Omni Rig FT-101 ini file and like you noticed it does work correctly. My radio is the FTDX-101MP, not the D model.

There is now a modified ini file, this is from Alex VE3NEA of Omnirig

"Recently Björn SM7IUN provided an improved version of the ini file for ftdx-101. Please download the latest rig ini files from my web site:

http://dxatlas.com/OmniRig/Files/RigIni.zip

and put them in the Rigs sub-folder of the OmniRig folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Afreet\OmniRig\Rigs
