I just ascertained from the back S/N that mine has J07 firmware.

Mine says J04. I tested this again today and mine is not doing what your is. Are you positive that some type of rx tone or dcs squelch is turned on?

What I meant before by "fooled around with it" is that I had trouble getting it to recognize the serial port to write using. I finally got it to work by using the programming software that came with the cable, set the com port with that and then told the unlock program to write while the other one was open. If the progress indicator stopped, I canceled it and started over. After a few tries, it got the correct COM port and worked.

I just found a newer version of the program, and attached it to my first post. I've verified that it works on my radio, as well. The model number is even listed on the application. Read the notes in the first post for the info on how to get it to work and also for translation information.

Q: What is different/better with the new software?
My local friends might be interested

I'll try it out. But I have been asking around elsewhere too, and have now been told that J07 is a significant change, and will need a new version of the band software to match...

PS. Tried that new version. On my J07 radio it reads out the current band as all 9999's what does it do on yours ?

Do you mean when it reads the current band limits? It reports the correct frequencies when I do it. So, apparently there is something different about the firmware you have.

Right click on the file. You will get a list of options.
Near to the bottom is "rename", left-click on this one.
The file name will now become active, with the name highlighted in blue(usually blue..).
The file extension, the .ex_ bit will not be highlighted.
Left-click your mouse at the end of the file name and you'll get a vertical cursor.
All you need to do now is delete the _ (underscore) bit and replace it with an 'e'.

Press return (or enter, depending on what you call the key).
You will get a prompt asking if you are sure you want to modify the filename as it may make the program unstable; left-click yes or OK (The affirmative option).

Bob's your uncle...

Yes, that's right. On my J07 version it reads all band values as 9999's. So something in the position or format of the band information in the firmware might have been altered. Hopefully the clever guys who wrote that software will be able to crack the changes and update it for late model owners like me.
