Summary0001791: Rig Control Support for Drake R8B Receiver
DescriptionThe R8B is no longer manufactured but still in widespread use. Requesting Rig Control support be added for this radio. Should be straightforward as no TX functions are required.

Additional InformationManual containing codes attached, see page 28. This was on Simon's to-do list at one point but never accomplished. I can provide a command test file for this receiver if needed.
