I'm still using the original 1.0 firmware and wonder if anyone can tell me what  new features are in v 1.11?  Is it worth installing?

Couldn't find anything on the ICOM website that answers these questions.

Thanks

The major changes are

1. an application can determine whether or not your IC-7600 is in simplex or split mode by sending appropriate CI-V commands

2. an application can direct your IC-7600 to transmit CW by sending appropriate CI-V commands

3. an application can determine whether your IC-7600's "transmit frequency monitor" function is enabled or disabled, or enable/disable this function by sending appropriate CI-V commands

4. there's a new "Timeout Timer" that will cut off a transmission that exceeds a duration specified via the menu system or by sending appropriate CI-V commands

There's a PDF file entitled "IC-7600 Firmware information— Ver. 1.10" that can be downloaded from the Icom America web site. If you can't locate it, send an email to me via

aa6yq (at) ambersoft.com

and I'll send you the PDF in response.

The difference between versions 1.10 and 1.11 is the addition of a "SAVE Form" item:

Quote
The SAVE Form item is added to the Save Option Set .mode, as shown below  To save settings and memory contents for backup or  copying to another IC-7600, you must save the data
 in the firmware version format that matches the target .IC-7600  Select “Now Ver” for the current version, or “Old Ver.xxx - xxx)” for the previous version
