FTM-100 Update firmware

Why do I need to update Firmware?

In the past when you bought an HT what you got was what you got – there was no way to update it. That has all changed. Because all of the firmware in your radio can be updated, the radio you bought today is capable of doing new things tomorrow.

The other reason you need to keep firmware up to date is because there are bugs. Early versions of firmware had problems that caused people to be very unhappy with their radios – some even sold them!

What needs to be updated?

There are at least two firmware “packages” in your radio. They are the controller firmware and the DSP firmware.

Checking Versions FTM-100DR

The Main, Panel, and DSP controller firmware versions can be determined in one operation as follows:

1. Press and hold DISP to bring up the main menu.

2. Use the Dial to select #13 RST/CLONE

3. Use the Dial to select #8 SOFTWARE VERSION

If the box in not available, the country you purchased the radio in may indicate the destination. If the FCC part 15 rules statement is on the radio above the Serial/ID label, it is the USA version. Other versions will not have the FCC label.
