When you power up the radio it will show 4 digits for about 2 seconds. 
Current version is 1.823.  Note the small numbers at the bottom of the 
display will be the serial number for the radio.

I'd get familiar with the radio for a few days.  If you have the version 
installed as listed above then you are up to date.  You will need to 
download and stall a Windows driver from the Tentec website.  Then you can 
download the latest version should you not have it installed.  Updating is 
easy once you have the driver installed.  It uses a  USB cable from the back 
of the radio to the computer.  There are instructions on the Tentec website 
the covers and explains the driver install and radio update process.

Bob, K4TAX
