How to update the firmware of the AnyTone AT-D868UV

How to update the firmware of the AnyTone AT-D868UV

Chuck - K0XM:
We've got a lot of calls, uh, with AnyTones and the Firmware updating and it's a really simple process. You have to tell the radio to go into Firmware update mode and I'm going to show you how to do that real quick. First of all before you do that, you have to install the Firmware update program, which is known as QX Pro Install or excuse me, QX Pro Update, which is that program right there. And you'll see it firing up. And all my stuff is set up to run as administrator on my Windows 10 computer. That makes life so much simpler but what you'll do is you'll update this file right here. Now, I'm gonna take a brand new AnyTone out of the box. This has come from the factory with version point 2.27 Firmware. I'm going to take it to 0.29.

JULY 2015 MISSOURI SECTION NEWS

JULY 2015 MISSOURI SECTION NEWS By DALE BAGLEY, K0KY MO SM

Field Day 2015 was an excellent opportunity to showcase Amateur Radio to the community and provide practical hands on experience that can be utilized during actual disasters or emergencies.

July 2015 ARRL MO Section NewsI appreciate the efforts of the net control operators on the MO Traffic Nets to facilitate the handling of Section Manager and Section Emergency Coordinator traffic. One of the important upgrades in Field Day, in recent years, is the improved messaging through TV news, print news outlets and social media. I don’t know if every MO Section Field Day operation experienced a rain storm during Field Day this year but, at my club’s Field Day site, the rain seems to arrive on schedule like the buzzards returning to Hinckley Ohio. I hope everyone had a safe, fun and productive Field Day 2015 and are looking forward to an even better Field Day 2016.

BridgeCom visits Ham-Com 2015 Irving, TX

Here are some thoughts and pictures from our visit to Ham-Com 2015 in Irving, TX.

BridgeCom Systems Ham-Com 2015 BoothRon and I left the Kansas City, MO area on Thursday morning and it was 80+ degrees.  When we got to TX it was 90+ degrees, so summer is officially here.  

Driving from MO to TX without the radio on leaves for a lot of random conversation, good, but random.  Ron and I discussed our thoughts and expectations for Ham-Com.  We expected to have a good booth location, plenty of foot traffic, and generate a positive buzz surrounding BridgeCom Systems and our products.  We packed with us three repeaters (BCR-50V, BCR-220, BCR-40U), the new BCM-220 mobile, and our MV-DMR server in a 2U chassis, plus the assorted banners and spec sheets.  

We arrived in TX about 3:30p Thursday and went straight to the Irving Convention Center to unload and set up.  The people of TX are very nice, lots of yes sir, no sir.  We got set up pretty quickly, we like to keep the booth small with just a few products and brochures.  I'm not a fan of the table across the entire front of the booth, but it seemed to work well this time giving us some shelter from the masses.  However, I should have put the banners out front on the corners where people could have seen them better.
