Are you able to read/write with the software now, or just program from the the dial/light method?

Have you tried to read/write the radio with software?

Otherwise, try these links.

They are for different models, but it should point you in the right direction. There is more than one reference to diode 17 (D17), so that may be your answer. They are also using different button combinations as well.

If you hold the light button at the same time as turning the channel knob, it will step in MHz increments.
