DriveR8 Control Program for Alinco DX-R8/SR8/SR9

Post by scan125 » 03 Mar 2017, 15:12

I'm please to announce the release of the DriveR8 Control Program, V1.0.0.0 for the Alinco DX-R8/SR8/SR9 Communications Receivers.

Being the first public release there will probably be a few niggles but like my Scan125 Control Program which has many, many, happy users you can be assured that DriveR8 will get the same attention and support.

For your information I've had a report from one DX-SR9 owner/user that DriveR8 has a few issues with their SR9 rig. Nobody else has raised issues but PLEASE if you do have/find bugs and issues the PLEASE contact me.

So just to let you know I'm working with an SR9 user, and Alinco Japan, and we are working on getting to resolve the issues.
