    Anyone else interested in trying to figuring it out?
    I'm using the Alinco usb thingy .

    1st , yes i have contacted VE3NEA , he replied very quickly , the user/programming language file he seems to point to is just gobbledygook to me and as i aint a software dude so not much help to me , i did let him know btw .

    Anyway after alot (hours) i managed to fluke at least the rig to be "online" in the client , before that it never did anything , so now i cop a rig not responding so that is the next thing at least .
    This is just to read the VFO frequency at first .

    Here is what i ended with up in the dxsr8.ini , i tried all the commands to read the vfo and always came up with nothing .

    [INIT]
    Command=(AL~RR_RXF)


    going to try the AL~RW_RXF AL~RR_RXF together next time .
    .

    The above has made the radio online at least , , so far tried a few others to see if it reads the frequency but no luck as yet , yes i'm changing 1 parameter at a time then test and keep going after that changing stuff (the easy way lol) .

    A example that has not worked so far.
    [INIT]
    Command=(AL~RR_RXF)

    [pmFreqA]
    ; VFO A frequency
    Command=(AL~RR_RXF)
    Value=8|8|vfText|1|0
    ReplyLength=16


    [STATUS1]
    ; READ VFO A
    Command=(AL~RR_RXF)
    Value=8|8|vfText|1|0|pmFreqA
    ReplyLength=16

    =======================================================================
    The full command list from the interweb i complied up years ago , i glad someone kept it all .

    DX-SR8T commands , RR=READ RW=WRITE ,

    Split AL~RR_SPL

    Tuner to tune AL~RS_TUN

    Radio model # AL~WHO


    AL~FW0%010d IN KGSDR AFTER READ AL~RW_RXF WHAT IT DO?
    ALSO FOR DXR8 BELOW IN KGSDR ,
    AL~RW_RFM05 < SUPPOSED TO BE FM(ABOVE^) , BUT STARTS IN AM!
    AL~SW_IQM01
    AL~SW_IQF 0000
    AL~SDRON < SDR ON?
    AL~IQ0 < SDR OFF?

    A non update .

    After plenty of tries to me something else has to be turned on via the commands , the radio is online yet is not responding it says with the client.

    So going to poke about in this to see what is going on https://freeusbanalyzer.com/ and try to figure it out , also downloaded this KGTRX for the DXSR9 and take a peek again in the .exe .
