Wanted F6061 Firmware, 3.1

Post

I have a Icom F6061 EMDC v2.9.1; my CS-F3161/F5060 v4.1 cloning software will not read or write to the radio and I cannot find the CS-F3161/5060 EMDC 2.7.1 version needed for this model. As an alternative I am looking for firmware version 3.1 or later to update the radio. I intend to use it for amateur radio and therefore need to maintain the wideband capability of the radio. I believe that any of the following firmware would work:
EX-2986C F3161/F5060 firmware 3.1;
EX-2986C F3161/F5060 firmware 4.1;
EX-2986C F3161/F5060 firmware 4.4.
Would also use any later versions that will maintain the wideband capability.

I think you need a EX-2986B version instead of the C version.  I have all the firmware you requested but I still am not sure it will work.

Poptarrrrrt, I found the firmware and software listings on the internet which included the files names for versions 4.1 and 4.4 updates (listing only, no downloadable files). I assumed that version 3.1, which is installed in my VHF F5061 would be a C suffix also but my assumption could be wrong. I know that the 3.1 version in the 5061 works with my software version 4.1 and also with versions 5.0 and 5.2 although I don't own them. My goal is to get the newest firmware that will work with my CS-F3161/F5060 ver 4.1 software. If there is a real advantage in using a newer firmware I would buy the newer software but my use would be on the ham frequencies and GMRS so I don't know if it would be worth it.

Amendment:

I did find this page : http://www.radioaficion.com/HamNews/articles/1530-icom-radio-programming-software-reference-chart.html (http://www.radioaficion.com/HamNews/articles/1530-icom-radio-programming-software-reference-chart.html) that listed much of the Icom firmware and software. I believe that firmware 2.7 uses the EX-2986B firmware. The C suffixes were for 4.1 and 4.4 noted above. The page didn't list what firmware for 3.1.

What would you recommend?

Argh.   I picked up a IC-5061D recently, and this has been a PITA.  I have a 4.1 radio that will read with 4.9 softwear, but will not write.   I have a factory ICOM OPC-1122U USB cable and using windows 7 if that matters.  It will read fine but will not write at all.  Motoman, could you pass along your 4.1 CS?   Or if anyone has the desirable RR firmware, that would be appreciated too.   

Thanks!

Could anyone pass along the Railroad firmware for the 5061D?  Whatever version works with 4.6.3 software?
