The Ten Tec Paragon upgrade chip provides many new
features to enhance the operation of the radio.
The enhancements are:

Ham bands can be accessed by either the ham up and ham
down keys or by 1 through 9 on the keypad.
Band registers have been added to store the last vfo
requency, mode, and filter for all nine ham bands.
The latest memory channel number accessed is retained for later use.
The vfo tuning rate resolution is user selectable. Each vfo has an
offset of +/- 99.99 kHz and simultaneous receive and transmit offsets
are possible. A 10 minute timer can be turned on to remind the
operator to identify. A symbol appears to the right of the 10 Hz
display when transmitting. Memory Tune and Memory Scan can be operated
without affecting the vfo. The Date and Clock set use the vfo knob to
make changes. The clock displays hours, minutes, and seconds. The
Memory scan routine uses the vfo knob to set the speed of the scan.
The voice function has an enhanced mode to provide additional
information to the operator. The frequency display blanks leading
zeroes and decimal points. Zero is now displayed without a slash. Many
functions such as VOICE can now be activated while transmitting. The
up and down keys can have an increment value selected by the operator
of 100 kHz and 1 mHz or 10 kHz and 5 kHz.  The 5 kHz increment is
useful for short wave listening, and the 10 kHz increment is useful
for AM Broadcast reception. Two additional memory channels have been
added to create a total of 64 memory channels (00 to 63) plus the
Scratch Pad.

The chip and full documentation is available for $49 shipped from:

Please include the current version of the TenTec software in your
radio. The version is printed on the label that is on top of the ROM
chip on the RAM-ROM-RTC board.  (may be 3.8 or 4.0)
