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

Postby Scan125 » Fri Mar 03, 2017 4:24 pm

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.
