The Icom IC-7100 is supported in RUMlog. Can we expect to see it also supported in RUMped?

Not in the next future. You can change the CI-V address from your trx to a sported address.
You could select 70h and select the IC-7000, this will work fine.

I tried that without success (I checked that the 70h/IC-7000 setting worked successfully with RumlogNG). Nonetheless, RUMped worked great during the CQWW-SSB contest, as long as I remembered to manually change bands. Some other programs do not seem to detect the USB connection either, but others do work correctly. I am using a USB cable extender (my radio is on the opposite side of a wall from the control head and I need to see if I can shorten the length, which may be the problem).

When you use the IC-7000 setting. you have to change the CI-V address in the IC-7100 to 0x70. Maybe is another setting wrong?
The latest version of RUMlogNG supports the CQWW contest. You should give it a try.

I did change the setting on the IC-7100 to 0x70 and selected the IC-7000 in both RUMlogNG (recognized the radio) and RUMped (did not recognize the radio).

I will check out the CQWW support in RUMlogNG (the CW contest is next month).

I ran a test case of RUMlogNG for CQWW and it looks good but a QSO between stations on different continents should score 3 points, not 5.

I used the contest feature in RumlogNG for CQWW CW and really like the way it performed as well as the look and feel of it. The interface to the IC-7100 worked perfectly.I see that more contests have been added and hope that continues.
