You should be able to do this:

Dim byteData As Byte = 11

0B (hex) is 11 (decimal), so what are you REALLY trying to do here?

You need to split those pairs up by space, convert the hexadecimal values to decimal, and then use WriteByte with the decimal value.

Simple approach for hex to decimal:

    Dim n As Integer = CInt("&H" & text)

String split by space:

   Dim s As String = text.Split(" ")
