I know VARA-FM is not officially supported YET, but I would like to have the option to select either FM or FM-D not only in the IC-9700 but the IC-7300 as well. 73 de Steve KB6HOH
Would it be possible to interface the W1HKJ FLrig program with VarAC??

OK FB on all that. Then I'm NOT crazy. LOL!
I never heard back from Alex VE3NEA so I sent a 2nd email today regarding FM-D in OmniRig and the IC-9700. I just will have to be patient.

Sure ting Steve @kb6hoh
If you see a halt in the transmissions for 60 seconds followed by a drop off, its either a QSB and loss of signal or a VaraHF bug where 2 stations stop talking to each other (also known as lockup) which is a scenarios I am currently investigating for the VaraHF creator Jose.
Have fun with VarAC :)
OK! I guess what I mean is when 2 stations are connected and NO data is being exchanged, I have noticed the connection between those stations will disconnect after a short period of time. I have also noticed just the opposite, so it could also be a path issue to the other station. Anyway will keep on testing out the program to see if I can BREAK IT! LOL! Still waiting on a response from Alex about OmniRig and the IC-9700 FM-D. The Radio does support it. Tnx Again.

I sent Alex VE3NEA and asked about FM-D in the 9700-Data file.
I really appreciate all the work you have done on this. Keep up the good work.
I do have a ?. What is the Link Idle timer set for?
Could that be adjusted by the user so if they are fumbling to pull up a file to send, it doesn't time out on them? Seems like its pretty short right now.
Tnx de Steve KB6HOH
I don't see in Omnirig an option for FM-D. Just FM.
I added FM this but if you want to have FM-D you would need to have a customized OMNIRIG ini file.
Will be out in next version.
Tnx 73 de Steve
VARA FM is fully and officially supported.
but I will add to the OmniRig dropdown also the FM elements you asked.
