Thanks for all your help Jim,  I think next step is to try writing to 
the radio then and see if I can break it. If I do, it's not a great 
financial loss.

I also discovered that the you guys managed to include the KG-UV9Dplus 
in recent builds which is great news and it means that I don't need to 
have the Wouxun software installed any longer. This project never ceases 
to amaze me!

73, Nick.
