Log4OM Web Status

This python program will take UDP messages blasted at it from Log4OM and will write it to a HTML file. It will continually update this file as messages come in. It requires you to let Log4OM automatically send status packets.

Usage

Place the script on a system that can hear UDP from Log4OM and has a way of putting the resulting HTML file on a webserver as fast as possible. Edit the script as required (IP, port, output location, HTML formatting).

Basic Operation

Log4OM has a feature that has it send out UDP messages automatically as long as specific conditions are met. This python script/program will take in the messages sent at it's IP and parse a few things out of the XML. It writes this to an HTML file every time a message comes in; so the HTML generated is set to auto-reload every 5 seconds. It currently displays the following in a very basic way:

  • Your current VFO frequency and opearating mode.
  • Your TX offset/split if it exists
  • If your radio is off or Log4OM is not loaded

This now will determine if the radio is off or if Log4OM is not loaded by trying to request the Alive command over remote control. It will assue Log4OM is active if a response is received. In an effort to make the thing a bit less chatty, it backs down to 60 second checks when not receiving data automatically.

Code could likely use more optimization. ChatGPT has been used to some degree but currently has issues giving complete output.

Examples

This has been implemented on the sidebar/menu of nq4t.com. The actual webpage that's updated is served from my QTH's webserver.
