MICOM-Firmware - Software Updates

Micom-Radios are state of the art, software defined radios.  When new options or enhancements are desired and become available for each model, we simply make a change to the software or (Firmware) in the radio.  The following chart specifies the newest version of Firmware that is available for each particular Micom-Radio model. Below the chart you will find instructions on how to determine what version of Firmware is loaded on your radio. If you require a software upgrade, please contact our Technical Assistance department for further support.
