How to Update Xiegu X5105 Firmware? | 2022 Latest Guidance
X5105 Firmware Update Bootloader Version B NOTE: version B only applies to machine code X0300190 and later. Install USB-to-Serial cable: Firmware update is done through the serial port (which can be located at the right-side panel named COM) of X5105. As modern computers generally no longer provide a serial port, so we need to use the USB-to-Serial cable to create a virtual serial port on the computer. The very first thing is to make sure that the USB-to-Serial cable is working properly on the computer.   Open Device Manager, Click on Ports (COM & LPT) Observe Port number -- Right-click on the USB Serial Port (COMx) --x is the Com Port Number. Select Properties, then Port Settings. Confirm Bits per second is 115200. Click OK     Entering the update mode of X5105: Keep X5105 power OFF and disconnect the power cable. Disconnect the 3.5mm stereo plug. Press and hold both of the VOLUME +/- buttons. Plug the power cable into the power jack. The LCD will show an update mode screen. “XG Boot loader” “Press VOL +/- to Abort” When seeing this screen, release both of the VOL buttons and the update mode is ready. The X5105 will apply internal the flash memory erasing process “Erasing Flash . . . Finished!” “Waiting connection” Note: Do not unplug the power cable during the erasing process. In order to transfer the firmware to the device, we use TeraTerm 4.96 Open the Tera Term Terminal Program 4.96. Configure Tera Term In the Window for Tera Term New Connection, click on the Serial selection and confirm it matches the port number in Device Manager and Click OK in the Tera Term New Connection Window.     The Tera Term Window opens.     Click on the Setup tab at the top of the Tera Term Window and select Serial Port.     Verify the Com Port Number from Device Manager       Confirm the Speed is 115200 Click New Setting Insert the 3.5mm stereo plug into the COM jack. There may be some junk characters on the screen. Ignore them. In Tera Term Click File - Transfer - XMODEM - Send In that order     Select Firmware File (Selected for info only – select the firmware file you want to use)     Check the 1K Option Box The transfer will not work if you do not do this! Click Open (Your Firmware file will be shown in the transfer window) In the x5105 Screen, you should see the following: Waiting connection…OK! Recv Bytes: 000000 Recv Error: 000 (Actual numbers will reflect the status of your Transfer)   Loading…….   Loading……   When the Progress Bar reaches 100%. The Transfer Window will close The message: Trans finish! Will appear on the bottom of the Tera Term Screen. Power radio off, if not already off. Hold Menu button and Power the radio back on The screen will show: MAIN RESET Are You Sure No Yes Choose Yes On first start, there will be several error messages. Press any Key to continue. Turn off, then back on for normal start.
What is HF radio?
  What is HF radio? Known as the decameter band or decameter wave, high frequency (HF) is the ITU designation[1] for the range of radio frequency electromagnetic waves (radio waves) between 3 and 30 megahertz (MHz). The HF band is a major part of the shortwave band of frequencies, so communication at these frequencies is often called shortwave radio. Because radio waves in this band can be reflected back to Earth by the ionosphere layer in the atmosphere – a method known as "skip" or "skywave" propagation – these frequencies are suitable for long-distance communication across intercontinental distances. The band is used by international shortwave broadcasting stations (2.310 - 25.820 MHz), aviation communication, government time stations, weather stations, amateur radio and citizens band services, among other uses. Different from VHF (Very High Frequency - 30MHz-300MHz) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency - 300MHz-3GHz) radios, HF radios cover far greater distances thanks to ionospheric refraction – but the HF radio signals are prone to distortion by atmospheric conditions such as geomagnetic storms or solar flares that radio users cannot control. HF communications are best suited for long distance communication between ground operators and base stations. Some HF radios cover HF band only, like the Xiegu G90, Xiegu X6100; Some cover more, like the Radioddity QR20 which is a full-band SDR with HF, VHF, UHF bands.   What about VHF/UHF radios? VHF radio waves operate in a band between 30-300 megahertz, while UHF radio signals are propagated within 300 megahertz and 3 gigahertz. These radio waves travel over line of sight, making them ideal for local communications over a few kilometres. Indeed, VHF radio waves normally travel within line of sight along the Earth’s surface. Common uses for VHF are FM radio broadcasting, television broadcasting, two way land mobile radio systems (emergency, business, private use and military), long range data communication up to several tens of kilometres with radio modems, amateur radio, and marine communications. Air traffic control communications and air navigation systems (e.g. VOR, DME & ILS) work at distances of 100 kilometres or more to aircraft at cruising altitude. VHF was used for analog television stations in the US, and continues to be used for digital television. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. One of the biggest pros of UHF radios is that they do a much better job of penetrating barriers in urban locations, like concrete, steel, and wood. So this kind of radio is best suited for use indoors, including buildings with multiple floors, in industries such as manufacturing, distribution, education, retail, hospitality, and healthcare. They also work well for businesses that function in both indoor and outdoor settings, where there are a lot of surrounding buildings. Nowadays, some radios are capable of transmitting on both VHF & UHF bands, like Radioddity GS-5B, making it meet more outdoor and indoor activities requirements. There are also some dual-band radios featuring 10W high power like Radioddity GA-510, supporting a longer range of communication.   US Amateur Radio Bands Reference - SOUCE    
Xiegu XPA125B Preparation Before Using X6100 X5105 or G90
The Xiegu XPA125B is a 100W PA and ATU all-in-one device for the Xiegu series radios. It helps fast build an up to 100W high-power shortwave transceiver with the Xiegu radios like the G90, X6100, X5105, G1M, etc. For most radios of Xiegu, you may need a CE-19 adapter to connect, while an L4001 cable for the Xiegu X6100. You can also make it work with Yaesu FT-817 or FT-818 with a CN-20 adapter. Below we provide guidance on XPA125B preparation before using X6100, X5105 or G90. For Xiegu X6100 Please follow the XPA125B Preparation steps below before transmitting: The Autotuner requires a constant carrier to tune properly. An SSB transmission does not provide this. 1. Select the band you want to operate on 2. Verify the XPA125B Band is the same as the X6100 3. Switch the X6100 to AM and set the output power to maximum 4. Press the PA switch on the XPA125B (if necessary) to return RX to OFF 5. Toggle the X6100 tuner to OFF (If Necessary) 6. Key the Mic 7. Verify that the radio is not operating in the Split mode unless operating on the same band for transmit and receive. 8. Long Press the XPA125B ATU button to initiate an antenna match 9. Unkey the Mic when the matching session is completed 10. Set the X6100 output power to 5 watts (not greater than 8 watts when using SSB using a power supply) 11. Toggle the XPA125B PA to ON 12. Switch X6100 to SSB The XPA125B is now matching the antenna for the band and is ready to operate. --- --- --- --- --- --- For Xiegu G90 Please follow the XPA125B Preparation steps below before transmitting: The Autotuner requires a constant carrier to tune properly.
