Alpha 9500 / Remote Control

The Alpha 9500 software ties the amplifier together with Ham Radio Deluxe, N1MM, DXLab, or Log4OM.

Ham Radio Deluxe:
If you use HRD, it may work as is with the following radios:
IC-7600
IC-7610
IC-7700
Flex
Yeasu FT-5000
If you have a different radio, and use HRD, then install the software and try it.
If it doesn't work, contact me. It's likely, a simple addition to a spreadsheet is all that's needed

N1MM:
If N1MM controls your radio, then this software should work.

DXLab:
if DXLab controls your radio, then this software should work.

Log4OM:
Initial testing shows promise for Log4OM. It may work if configured properly. If not working for you, let me know.

Instructions for DXLab Commander
After you completely installed the 9500 software:
Start DXLab Commander.
Hit the "Config" button.
In the "General" tab, hit the "Net Serv" button.
In the Radio Group, check "Enable".
And then start my Alpha9500 program "Alpha9500SerialPortInterface.vxe".

The Alpha remote software will ask for the com port for the Amp.
After is connects, to save that port entry, press the "Setup" button, and then close the Setup page.
This stores the Alpha port setting for next time.
After that, the program will begin to capture UDP messages from DXLab Commander.
The Frequency readout will update when the Radio/Commander frequency changes.
The Amplifier will follow the radio/Commander.
