Thanks for the replies.
I have written some ino code for other projects using arduino ide. For something like this I am out of my league probably.
Always run the compile test feature before I upload it. one semicolon out of place and it just doesn't want to run.
I assume that the arduino software puts out is the hexadecimal code. Going to look at the xloader software. Seems like something I need to learn.
Yes this is for my ubitwood, ubitx in Kenwood case.
