What do I need to do to get the job done.?????

I have a lead USB to mic plug and I have acquired a file called 80CHUHFCBIC400P.icf which I trust is some configuration file.

Do I connect laptop to radio and then transfer this file??????

All help needed???

IIRC Alan, you'll need the programming software to upload the config file. Specialised sites such as uhfcb.com.au should be able to assist if no response by those more capable on here.

Oh dear

What miss informed information.

The Icom 400 pro has no trouble in operating on the newer channels.

The easy way to do it is grab a programming lead and software, easily obtained from the net and add the top forty channels to the second bank.
Choose the 5 watt power selection to keep it legal.

As the cb bank cannot be altered it will remain as loaded with channels 1-40

There are other ways to configure the radio but this is the easy way if you use the scan functions.

If you cannot do this yourself any reputable dealer will do this for you.

The Icom 400 pro has 128 channel capacity. 40 have been loaded. As long as you only wish to have the other 40 gazetted channels at 5 watt max power loaded there is no problem.
As the radio is programmed via the microphone socket you it may require removal if done by a dealer , check with them first.

A very easy 5 minute job

Cheers Teza"

This is not actually true, the later .icf file has up to 80 channels in the Bank , you are still limited to a total of 128 channels
