UDP Multicast

Anyone who can help please,

I need to send a UDP message (only 3 characters) to a multicast address of 224.5.11.62 port 41000, the 'receiving' system is an Arduino board, and it is already receiving UDP multicast messages on that address sent from another system.
As far as I understand it, the Socket.ahk include file only handles TCP communication.

At the moment, I am using 'PacketSender' from a 'Run' command in AHK, (this is working OK, but slow) but would prefer to use a UDP socket class within AHK.

Is there way to send UDP multicast from AHK?

Thanks for any help,

Allen
