Hi James,

Welcome to the RigPi forum!

It is possible to use a VX-8dr in a limited way.  The radio does not have the ability to change frequency, etc, via CAT commands.  For single channel operation, you can use the Hamlib Dummy radio with hardware PTT.  Audio in/out and PTT are available on the radio through the Packet connector on the top.  You can use Mumble for audio via those connections.  Enable the Keyer for use with the Dummy radio so you will get PTT switching via the Keyer PTT connector.
