UltraBeam officially publishes new manuals in electronic format. Each manual has been compiled in order to provide a clear and immediate comprehensibility of the assembly procedure of the antennas currently produced.
Thanks to a common design and standards assembly procedures in many models, today 1 to 3 manuals are sufficient in order to assemble any UltraBeam model.
Simply download the "STANDARD" manual and any supplements needed to your specific antenna model.

- Install USB FTDI driver (below)
- Connect to PC via USB cable
- Run the new firmware and wait for the controller terms upgraded. (Please do not disconnect the controller or switch off during this procedure).
- Check after using the command MENU -> INFO if the firmware was actually updated.
As usual the upgrading procedure has a low possibility of failure due to black out, wrong procedure or failure comunication with a PC controller. In this case the controller does not respond any more and has to be sent to the factory for reprogramming. In this unfortunate case a fee will be charged for the upgrading, restart and the shipping cost. Before upgrading your controller, take a while to evaluate if you really need it.
