There is no software download for a K2. K2's do not use user configurable firmware.
You can buy it through the parts dept. It is on the order form.

Hi John,

In the K2 the only way to upgrade firmware is to purchase a new
firmware IC and replace the old IC. Field upgradable firmware via serial
port and utility program not available until the K3.

John,

There is no K2 Utility.
To update the firmware in the K2, you must buy the firmware ICs. See the
Elecraft website - Mods and updates tab - then Spare Parts and Mod Kits
- then K2.

John,

If you have a newly built K2 all firmware should
be the latest.

If you have an older one, purchased used, you may
or may not need to upgrade the firmware by
obtaining the ICs from Elecraft. To make that
determination you must disassemble the K2 so you
can see the firmware ICs and note the version
written on them. Then look at the Elecraft site as
Don says below and see if your chips are the
latest -- and what any needed updates will do for you.

The K2 was designed in the late 1990s. It and
other early Elecraft transceivers (e.g. K1, KX1)
did not have the capability to update firmware via
downloads but required replacing the firmware
integrated circuits.
