The firmware, AFAIK, is not a PROM but a MCU chip. It is a surface mounted device and 
hence not easy to replace with standard tools found in the HAM shack. I've 
bought my update for a FT990 from the YAESU service center in the USA as the Australian 
distributor was unable to help me.

In any case, find below the address of the Yaesu Service Centre in the USA:

Vertex Standard
10900 Walker Stree
CA 90630-5013

Tel: (714) 827-7600
Fax: (714) 827-8100
