There has been a file out for a while (Moleculo posted it in this thread) on doing an alignment on the VX-8GR. Unfortunately I and others found that the procedure for accessing the menu did not work. I recently found a file on the Yahoo group posted up by IK2BCP that cleared things up for me. There is a password (AH041M) that needs to be entered in the CW ID (Menu 16) and CW ID needs to be activated for the procedure to work. Attached is the file from the Yahoo groups.
