NOTE: This firmware is for the TS-590S, not the TS-590SG.

Updating the firmware from Ver.1.08 (or before) to Ver.2.03 resets the transceiver automatically due to internal memory address reallocation. If you do not want to lose user data, save the data using the latest version Radio Control Program ARCP-590 (Ver.2.02) before updating the firmware and write the data back after updating the firmware.

Before updating the firmware, remember to save all the radio’s settings: TS-590S Firmware Q & A
