TS-590SG and TS-590S firmware/software updates: the full story.

Today (29 January), Kenwood released firmware and software updates for
the TS-590SG and TS-590S. Specifically:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TS-590SG:
==========

*** Firmware v1.01

*** ARCP-590G v1.01
(You need to install this to be compatible with firmware v1.01).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TS-590S:
==========

*** Firmware v2.00
(This is a major upgrade, changing the function of several
TS-590S controls. When you install it, it automatically does
a full radio reset).

*** ARCP-590 v2.00
(You need to install this to be compatible with firmware v2.00).

*** ARHP-590 v2.00
(You need to install this to be compatible with firmware v2.00).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

REMINDER: The TS-590SG and TS-590S are two entirely different radios.
The firmware and software for one radio will not work on the other.

Also, before updating the firmware, remember to back up *all* the
radio's settings (including the front-panel controls that ARCP does not
back up). Details at:

As usual, links to all Kenwood firmware and software products are
conveniently collected together in one place on the "TS-590 Family
Resources Page":
