R20.01.00 was the last release for both XTS and XTL radios.

Just a quick question for clarification. Please humor me on this. What are you intending to use the radio for exactly?

Don't try things late at night.

Installed 20.1.

Very tired, made a coffee. Returned and tried to read the radio. Pop up says the radio has a different version. Tried and tried.

Finally, went to bed, exhausted.

Following am, found I was trying to program with the old version. Saw the new icon, (oops), pressed it and success.

Operator failure.
