Well, it would be real hard to make it much worse...:-)

It's pretty easy. You get two eprom chips. Take the top off the echoplex to
reveal it's innards. (unplug if first! and ground yourself to protect
against static.)  You'll see two similar chips in sockets. Use a small
flathead screwdriver to carefully lift those out. Carefully insert the new
chips in the sockets. The PCB is labeled so you'll see which chip goes in
which socket. Put the top back on, plug it in. Turn the power on with the
parameter button pressed to initialize it, and you're done.
