IIRC, it's buried pretty deep in the menus.

But if you can physically access the front panel, you own it.  No passwords on that. There's no Ethernet connection on mine. It's an early version. 

I suspect current models have Ethernet connections and better security.

Come to think of it, it probably shouldn't be TOO easy to change the frequency, else it could be changed by accident, something the FCC wouldn't be too happy about.  I imagine there must be some safety mechanism for that?
