Talking Re: Icom ic-f3162/f4162 programming issue

With a bit of luck a kind hearted Icom Dealer out there may be willing to let me have a file of the firmware!

I hear you, but we are unable to comply for a couple of reasons. First, we don't carry this model in the US, so we don't support it. Second, although what you are asking is possible, it is a risky process. If it is unsuccessful, it can permanently brick your radio, and there is no fix from the dealer for that.

There is a reason why Icom requires you to send them in and charges you for it. If something does go wrong, they have you covered. This isn't about making a quick buck off you, it's about liability if it doesn't work.
