Icom 31A is no longer available. However the Japanese model 31 (430mhz)  is still in the market. Is it possible to download the US firmware into the 31 to make it 31A? Thanks!

Interesting question. In theory I would say yes but it is also possible that Firmware is serial number/device ID locked meaning that it will only install on a device with a hardware signature/serial number in range that it supports.
