New P3/SVGA 1.20/1.10 firmware is available

Paul Saffren N6HZ
New P3/SVGA firmware is now available as a general release.  This firmware is currently shipping in all new factory built and kit P3's and SVGA boards.   If you are upgrading from a BETA release, please make sure data terminal mode and fixed tune are turned OFF before upgrading.   You will need version or later of the P3 Utility which is available here.
For help with data terminal mode, macros and beacon features, refer to the Quick Start Guide.  An updated manual will be available shortly.
