You need no have version 6 of the software in the FT1000D to have it
How to check: Press key 1 and key 3 of the keypad and switch on the
After the display test you will see the text YAESU version number.
If you have version 5.84 you will have to contact yaesu for a new prom.
I hope yeasu in North America is faster then in The Netherlands, because
one two months ago, and they have to order it in Japan.
The price here should be around $75, they werent sure when I ordered it.
