Regular price $39.80 $39.80 Sale

Programming Cable for most Motorola MC MCX and GM series VHF/UHF Mobile Radios
Connects directly to PC serial port, no special programmer/adapter required.
Replacement for Motorola RIB box and programming cable combination.

Unlike most other cables, no RIB (Radio Interface Box), batteries or 25-pin adapter is required, this connects directly to PC or laptop.
This cable has a unique proprietary RIB chip built into the connector shell.
Programs the following Motorola mobile radios using the front RJ-45 type, 8-pin mic connector:

MCS-2000 (MCS2000), MCS-2100 (MCS2100)

MC-900 (MC900), MC-2100 (MC2100)

GM-2000 (GM2000)

Important notes on programming the MCS2000 series and related radios listed above:
Due to the way the Motorola SB9600 programming bus was implemented in these radios, certain configurations/revisions may exhibit programming difficulties when using the front mic jack. The following are known Motorola issues with both 100% on-spec Motorola programming equipment and third party equipment (assuming correct programming setup):
1. Radio attempts to enter programming mode, but display goes blank or displays an error code instead of "PRGM". Probable cause: Some radios, usually remote-head versions, cannot be programmed reliably through the front mic jack. Solution: Configure the radio with an attached head for programming, or program radio using the 25-pin accessory port (use RFguys SKU 33960 cable for accessory connector instead).
2. Radio does not enter programming mode (radio does not react at all to read/write attempts). Probable cause: Sense transistor in radio head is damaged, usually by accidentally shorting the mic connector to ground or attempting to use an incorrect mic/accessory. Solution: Replace transistor Q0662 (radio head) or program radio using the 25-pin accessory port (use RFguys SKU 33960 cable for accessory connector instead).
DB-9 (9 pin) serial connector, no adapter or batteries required. Length = 32"
This is a brand new, tested and guaranteed-to-work cable.
No software is included with this cable - Programming software is readily available online.
Quality North American-manufactured product with a full life-time replacement warranty.
Unlike some transistor-based imported cables, this cable cannot damage your radio by corrupting the codeplug.
