Motorola GM MC MCS MCX Mobile Radio Programming Cable - for 25-pin Accessory port

Regular price $49.80 $49.80 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.
All-in-one 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 25-pin accessory connector:

MCS-2000 (MCS2000), MCS-2100 (MCS2100)
MC-900 (MC900), MC-2100 (MC2100)
MCX-1200 (MCX1200), MCX-2000 (MCX2000)
GM-900 (GM900), GM-1100 (GM1100), GM-1200 (GM1200)
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 (this is the correct cable for programming via the accessory connector).
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 (this is the correct cable for programming via the accessory connector).
Note: Our new SKU 33911 8-pin mic-jack programming cable will now work with virtually all radios and configurations and is usually recommended first since It can be exchanged for one of these 33960 cables if required.
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 cables, this cable cannot damage your radio by corrupting the codeplug.
