||Changes from Version 1.20
- Fixed the problem where the scan might not stop, even when the transceiver receives a signal.
- With the previous firmware, there was a delay in sounding the standby beep when the transceiver communicated with other manufacturers’ DV equipment*. With the latest firmware, the transceiver sounds the standby beep with no delay, even when the transceiver communicates with other manufacturers’ DV equipment.
*It does not occur when directly communicating with transceivers and/or application software made by Icom or Kenwood.To update the firmware
- Thoroughly read 13. UPDATING THE FIRMWARE of the ADVANCED MANUAL and follow the instructions displayed on the IC-9700 LCD screen.
- This update initializes the transceiver’s settings when updating from a firmware earlier than version 1.20. Save your current settings before updating the firmware, and then write it back to keep the previous setting on the updated firmware.
- The firmware will be updated to the following versions.
Main CPU: 1.21
Sub CPU: 1.00
Front CPU: 1.00
FPGA Program: 1.06
FPGA Data: 1.00
DV DSP: 1.05
