Look at the jumper locations just above the VFO knob on the circuit board. Solder the first four jumpers and remove the solder jumper at location five. Reassemble the radio, and reset the cpu by pressing V/M and the "F" button and turn the radio on while holding the buttons down. This will extend the xmit freqs. on hf, vhf and uhf."
