Trying to setup OmniRig within Log4OM to test out. Reads the frequency on the radio fine but constantly keys the PTT. I can't figure out a way to fix this. Any suggestions?

What sort of interface are you using between your PC's serial port and your IC-737? If this interface employs the serial port's RTS or DTR signals for RX-TX switching ("PTT"), you must configure the application to not assert that signal.

I use a Rigblaster Plug N Play.  I don't see those configuration options within the program.

OmniRig's configuration settings enable you to set RTS to "High" or "Low", and to set DTR to "High" or "Low". You may also be able to configure your Rigblaster to not assert PTT.

Ok so that takes care of the constant PTT problem, however, now it won't PTT at all.  I put RTS and DTR both to low.

Your IC-737 can't be directed to switch between RX and TX via CI-V command. The version of OmniRig I have (embedded in CWSkimmer) doesn't have a "PTT via DTR" or "PTT via RTS" setting that I can find, but perhaps there's  a later version. I suggest that you ask the folks at Log4OM.

Log4OM forum http://forum.log4om.com/ I had some problems and they proved themselves to be quite responsive and helpful.

Finally heard back, they think it is a problem with Omnirig and they are contacting the omnirig team.
