Hi Larry,

I'm glad you have it sorted out.

I don't have a "source" at Baofeng that lets me know when they decide
to bump up the firmware version. I only know about them by those that
discuss it in the forums.

I can't afford to go out and buy a new radio every time one comes out
with a new firmware version. ;-)

I rely on those that made "factory" images of their radios before they
started "playing" with them to share them with me. In this case,
someone did send me their N5R3403 but I forgot to post it. I just put
it online. Thanks for jogging my memory.
