Select the "Port Settings" Tab, then click the "Advanced" button. This is where you will find the Receive buffer. Note the original settings, slide the bar down to Low (1). Now press the "OK" button to change the settings and to close "Device Manager".

  2. Connect it to the COM1 serial port.

  3. Push the SETUP button on the radio (the front panel LEDs must be green) and run executable file with an appropriate firmware version (it would be Rev577.EXE file for 5.77 firmware version, for example).

  4. Choose the option the pertains to your level of firmware, either option (0) or (1).

  5. Follow the onscreen instructions and select the low speed download.
