I am retrieving a base-64 encoded byte array and need to return its string value. Looking over previous posts, I found that this could be done with hex conversion. Am I on the right path?
Thanks for any help.

your original question was on how to determine the "string value" of a base64 encoded string.
David answered that question.
Your "dp:radix-convert(_, 64, 16)" solution does return the "hexadecimally encoded string".
If that is what you really want, fine.
But be aware that you will loose any leading 0x00 bytes by this (radix-convert is a "number" function).
So if you do not want that, you would need a solution like this:
(it prepends base64('F00000')='8AAA', converts, and then just strips the first 6 prepended characters)
