Hi Don,

I still have an email I need to send you, unfortunately unforeseen family issues kicked me in the butt this last week.

Anyway, I use Windows 8.1 on all my HAM Radio PC's here in the shack including on the Tablets.

I use all the software you mentioned and more without issues with Windows 8.1   Any quirks with are generally documented well on the relevant software's forums and to be honest I don't recall any issues that have caused me to dig too deep.   Normally user error has been the cause of any stumbling blocks I have experienced.
