    Those are the same numbers that I have with my 6500.

    I assume that one is the software number and the other is the firmware number. They don't have to be the same.

    It works well with that combination. I hope that yours does too!

    The first three digits are all that have to match between the hardware firmware and the SmartSDR for Windows software.
