Question VX-180 On Duty option

I have a VX-180 VHF radio that has a menu option of on/off duty. My problem is that it's grayed out, so onlu OFF duty is an option. Was this a firmware change during the life of the radio? I believe mine is a very old radio and probably a very old firmware version. Was this added to the programming software at some point after a firmware update? I don't see anywhere in the software, when I read the radio, what the firmware version is. How can I tell....some combination of keys at turn on?
Thanks!

In case anyone else is interested, I just found the answer to my own question. The "On Duty" option is only available on radios with software versions of 2.0 and above. Mine is version 1.2, so that is why it is grayed out.
