    Question Codan NGT option add

    Hi all!

    Is there a way to add options to Codan NGT SRx? I mean, 'hamradio way'. I would be glad to get 15-10479 (FED-STD-1045 ALE/CALM), 15-10532 (MIL-STD-188-141B ALE full), 15-10486 (GPS), 15-10551 (CIVS). And especially, if does exist, Amateur mode (Free Tune TX). I've searched through the board, but found nothing related to NGT options.

    I believe those options are activated by serial number.

    That is, you pay a Codan dealer for the option, they notify Codan your serial number, and Codan sends the dealer the unlock code.

    That was the arrangement for the Amateur Option for my 2110. I can't recall what that cost, but I do recall if I'd wanted ALE that was $300. so I suspect the cost might be about the same.

    I'll second vr3rx's comment, with these radio's the "hamradio way" is to pay.

    Just last year for my NGT AR I bought both the Amateur option and the LSB option (yes they are two separate things). Cost was about $110 from Future System in WA as recommended by another member here.

    I thought the price was quite reasonable.

    Okay, guys looks like there is no "hamradio way". It's sad. In this case, could you please recommend ham-friendly CODAN dealer (Australia and US would be just fine)? Or you dealt with CODAN directly?

    I am also interested in the information how to check that ALE/CALM is already present or not? I see some ALE menu in radio, but ALE/CALM is not part of the Tcvr Options list. There I see only TxD, TxP and 100W.

    Thank you!

    BTW, what are the latest firmware version for SR and SRx, and where to get them? Looks like google has only NGT AR and NGT VR firmware.
