Do you still have the information on programming the Kenwood TK-840?

If so, could you send me a copy of the information?

How to get out-of-band on Kenwood TK840 using KPG-25D software:

To get the 840 out of band, open the software, hit the "alt" key, then move
over under "model". You then select number 3, which says "tk-840". It then
asks you if it is an "F1", which is 450-488, "F2" which is 482-520, "F3",
which is 403-430, then at the bottom of that window it has "Sp: 403-520". SP
means "Special tune", and with that you can program anything between 403-520,
but may have to set the VCO a little. I used to have an 840, and had ham and
biz freqs in it with no retuning.
