Thank you Rob for the new MidlandLMR List. Below is a rundown on Midland
Model numbers and product for subscribers to the list. Since this is a
new list with few subscribers, you may run this again when the list
grows.
Good luck and thanks again.

Larry,

Thanks for the extensive info. Would also like to welcome the few that
have subscribed so far. Things will probably be a little slow at first
until the number of subscribers increases. Please be patient. I've
posted a message on Repeater@onelist.com plus e-mailed a number of
Midland e-bay bidders to make them aware that the list exists. If any of
you can think of other resources for subscribers, please pass along the
information that MidlandLMR is here.

Everyone have a happy Easter.

The kit is a model #70-2180- 99 channel option expansion kit
Midland list price is $45.00

You can order direct from Midland and pay list price or find a Midland
dealer in your local area that might cut you some discount on his next
order.

Midland has a parts web page at-
http://www.midlandusa.com/ProductsDisplay.asp

There is also a web page that identifies radios and could be a parts
source if you inquire- http://www.brinkleyelec.com/MIDID.htm

Try to get into Brinkley's home page for parts ordering info if they in
fact will do that.

Good luck........

On Tue, 06 Apr 1999 17:46:21 -0700 Jed Barton <jbarton@... Jed- I've seen a number of Midland 526 radios advertised in the
classified section of Mobile Radio Technology Magazine. Too many listings
to put here, but the advertisers range from Calif. to the Mid-west and
East Coast. You can probably find a new issue at the library if you don't
have access to one.

There are also 4 others you can contact via e-mail-
whole-sale-radio@...
JPANIK0889@...
Radios4U@...
schertzer@...

Each of the above have had 526's in the past. Good Luck. Keep in mind
that the 526 requires an adapter for the normal Midland programmer to
program the 526 prom.

| 20|20|1999-04-10 07:29:40|Rob Lee|ebay item purchased from seller dbritt|
This message is primarily directed to Bill Ward, KC6F, but perhaps
others may be interested. The following refers to ebay item #83267567
purchased from seller dbritt.

Positives:

1. Would rate the external physical condition of the radios as fair to
good based on other radios originating from Oregon DOT. The inside of
the radios looked fine also. Will post info on how they tune up later.

2. All three radios had the Z-289 Noise blankers installed.

3. The three microphones that arrived with the radios are in better
condition than average.

NEGATIVES:

1. None of the radios had CTCSS boards installed, however, it appears
they were never equipped with CTCSS as all the necessary jumper
connectors were in place for the radios to operate without the boards. I
obtained two of these same OR DOT radios from another source, one was
without a CTCSS board as above and one did have a board. It would have
been nice to know these boards were not included with the radios.

2. The ebay listing indicated two mounting brackets were included. Only
one Midland bracket arrived with the shipment. Two other non-Midland
brackets arrived that were not usable with the radios.

3. NONE of the radios came with the Z-273 EPROM programming boards! This
item is very critical as we all know the radios do not operate without
these boards installed. Believe the seller mistakenly identified the
Z-289 noise blanker boards as the programming boards. Again, It would
have been nice to know these boards were not included with the radios.

COMMENTS: At this point I'm willing to give the seller the benefit of
the doubt on his descriptions of the merchandise although he did receive
very complete information detailing how to identify the Z-273 and the
70-2402 EPROM boards from Jon, WR7JM. Perhaps Jon, might share his
e-mail correspondence with the seller. Jon has purchased GE radios from
the seller that also had the programming boards missing leaving the
radios unusable.

In an effort to help the seller better describe the Midland Syn-tech
Radios he is offering, Jon has volunteered to photograph and scan
pictures of the Syn-techs identifying some of the critical components to
be forwarded to dbritt and also be placed on a web page accessible to
others.

Looks like four more of these radios are coming up on ebay (Item
#86477158). Hope this help with any bidding you might attempt.

| 29|29|1999-04-11 17:36:20|Rob Lee|70-2102C Feedback Problem|
I have, what appears to be, a new 70-2102C CTCSS board that has a
feedback problem similar to having a stage going into self oscillation.
The board seems to function fine except for the squeal heard in the
speaker during receive and a squeal heard with the audio during
transmit. The Syn-tech radio operates fine without the board installed
(necessary connector jumpers in place) or with a 70-2102A board
installed. I have no documentation on the unit. I'm concerned that I
might possibly have a jumper problem. The circuit design is considerably
different from the 2102A board making a comparison difficult. Has anyone
encountered symptoms of this nature?

Rob K7TGU
| 30|29|1999-04-11 22:41:24|ki7ax@xxxx.xxx|Re: 70-2102C Feedback Problem|
Rob-

If you compare the "C" version to the other boards, you'll find an extra
ic chip on the board. The 7C version has voice scrambler and we had a
very similar situation. We did not have the squeal on tx, but had it on
receive. We did the same as you, pulled the "C" and installed an A or B
board. Documentation on the 7C board really did not help, so it is
gathering dust on the shelf. Thought we had a "bonus" in the radio when
it got opened. NOT!

I picked-up a 70-924b UHF desktop repeater last week with a possiable
pwr supply problem.. The radio in a Xtal controller 25W rig. and its
drawing 10A on transmit.. I think a little high? And seams to go into
foldback due to RF getting into it.. I think I found the RF problem, but
is 10A about right..? I still need to get into the circut to find out
where all the currents going... The other problem is it was re-wired
with a Comm-Spec TS-32P board to allow for PL squelch.. I can't find COR
anywhere.. If any one has any ino on the DB-25 con. or the 8 pin Mic. on
the back of the radio, I would appreciate the help... I have found all
the signals to make it work as a repeater, I'm just trying to figure out
what the rest of the stuff does.. I'm sure I'll be ordering a service
manual soon.. Thanks and any input is welcome... Pete

Well, the mail list has been quiet here of late so here is one of my
head scratchers. I have one low band syn-tech that defaults to channel
54 at power up. The circuit for retaining the current channel when
powered down (brown wire) has been opened as many have been, but when
this is the case all the radios which I have encountered with the exact
same program default to channel 01. Any thoughts?

Rob
| 43|42|1999-05-10 17:46:50|ki7ax@xxxx.xxx|Re: Syn-tech default channel at power-up|
Hello Rob-

You need to make sure that the entire CPU Keep Alive kit, 70-2215, is
actually installed in the radio. A brown power lead from the dc cord does
not entirely indicate that the kit is installed in the radio. I've found
some radios that have the dc cord option, but the radio is void. I have
one that defaults to 45 (vhf), another to 55 (uhf). The cheapest fix for
that was to program my primary channel in the default position of the
radio.

What is surprising is that most Midlands do not need the CPU Keep Alive
kit to default to Channel 00 or the lowest channel programmed into the
prom. They almost always do that. The kit alows you to remain on the
channel that the radio is set at when turned off. Out of 25+ Syntechs
that I have, only 2 do not default to 00, and none have the CPU option
kit installed or powered up if installed.

According to my price list, the kit is still available at $12.50 from
Midland. You can download a pricelist at-
http://midlandusa.com/ProductsDisplay.asp

You can get to Midland's home page from that address also to get to
technical services to e-mail questions to them.

| 46|42|1999-05-11 16:26:43|Rob Lee|Re: Syn-tech default channel at power-up|
Larry,

Thanks for the info. I'm assuming that the keep alive kit remotes the
that circuit to the power connector at the rear of the radio to be
powered from a separate source other than the main radio feed so that
main power can be removed from the radio, e.g. controlled by the
ignition switch, without the radio loosing track of what channel was
selected. Please correct me if I'm in error here. I'm somewhat new to
the Syn-techs and still learning. I have a dozen or so units I have been
playing with and have noticed the keep alive circuits wired to the rear
connector in some, but not in others.

On Tue, 11 May 1999 07:26:43 -0700 Rob Lee <roblee@... CORRECT, THE BROWN WIRE NEEDS TO BE CONNECTED TO A CONTINUOUS,
UNINTERRUPTED DC SOURCE SUCH AS BATTERY DIRECT. THE MAIN RED "A" SOURCE
CAN THEN BE DISCONNECTED FROM POWER, SUCH AS AN IGNITION SOURCE. I HAVE
ONLY 2 OR 3 OUT OF 25+ MIDLANDS THAT HAVE THE OPTION INSTALLED. I'VE
ELIMINATED THE KITS BY CHECKING WHAT THE DEFAULT CHANNEL IS ON POWER UP
AND MADE THAT CHANNEL MY PRIORITY CHANNEL. VERY SIMPLE CURE FOR THE
DEFAULT SCUZZIES.

recommendations as to a Distributor? We had been using Santa Fe but the

often sells for less than Santa Fe's dealer cost.

As a former Midland dealer (sold the shop in 1990), I can advise you that
the factory representative has to inspect your shop to make sure you are
qualified to service what you sell. Also, if there is an existing Midland
dealer in your area, you probably will not be able to buck the system.

You can contact Midland USA either by phone or look up their web site.
There are links to sales, contact us, etc. Find the factory sales rep for
your territory. You will probably have a minimum buy in, i.e.
programmers, service equipment, etc. Might be better to find a dealer to
work with.

You will also find that most LMR dealers work on about 40% off list, but
amateur is only about 25%. We sold to other dealers in our territory that
Midland would not open as a dealer at 30% off list. There are also
incentive discounts for quantity buying, public safety sales, and factory
direct billing.

We diversified to Kenwood and Bendix King and sold MANY public safety
agencies and school districts. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Some product will not meet bid specs and others will exceed them. If you
check in Mobile Radio Technology, you will find dealers that will 2 step
to others. General Radio I think in Kentucky is one that is a distributor
for Midland.

You can also do a search for Midland dealers on the web and find other 2
steppers.

Good luck.

Can you verify model numbers on your UHF radios. The above combination
does not exist. 70-565 is a dash mount 65 watt, 70-665 is a 65 watt trunk
mount. Would you consider a purchase price if trading material is not
produced?

I have some 80 watt- wide band VHF trunk mounts (144-174) 70-482B. They
have the ctcss boards and proms. Sorry, no spare high power 70-056C
trunk mount or 052C dash mount low bands. I also have one dash mount
version of the 80 watt VHF wideband.

If interested, please contact me directly at my e-mail address and remove
negotiations from the list.

Thanks for the posting.

Hey gang-

Don't have access to my accessories manual until Monday. Picked up a 380B
80 watt dash mount VHF at a swap meet today. Radio has the 2106 DTMF
decoder option. Looking at it, there is a white 5-dip switch assembly as
well as a plug in prom that appears to be erasable.

It does do 75 watts with existing programming on 151-156 mhz. So at least
the radio does work. Along with the DTMF decoder, it also has a CTCSS
encoder/decoder and the reset button acts as a monitor switch on a fully
pl'd channel. Does not appear to have any additional wires at the dc cord
for the outgoing horn honk relay option.

Another stranger feature is a 6 pin NON dtmf microphone 70-2326. Can not
find any documentation in either sales or service manuals.

Anyone have any info on programming? The prom does not fit any
programmers or adapters that I have. The options book shows it is
programmable from 1-7 digits.

Any input on the microphone? Never saw a 6 pin that was not a DTMF mic.

Larry,

Sorry, I can't help you with the brackets. However, I do have a number
of 70-2216 high power cords that I will sell for $8.00 each. They have
pigtails 1 to 2 feet long.

Let me know if you are interested, and how many you need.

Regards,
Richard

I should have thought of this earlier, but the attached post hit home.

I also need a dash-mounting bracket for a Syntech I. I have a Lo-band
70-050C that I put on 6 meters and need to mount. It looks wierd
bouncing around on the floor!!! Besides that, my front-seat passen-
gers are tired of me telling them "just hold it in one place with
your feet and stop complaining".

If anyone has one more bracket, I would like one also. I also need
the scan kit and new front panel for the Syntech.

Thanks,

Don

We have been removing the slide rails from the syntech 1's, drill

mounting the radio's with universal brackets.

Hello all,

I am using a 6m Midland Syntech #70-055C as a remote base on my 2m repeater.
Right now I am using audio from the high side of the volume control in the
control head. Even with a lot of resistors and various caps, the audio is
poor. There is too much noise on it, and audio signals are buried in the
background noise. I don't have a book for the radio. Where would be a good
source for descriminator audio from the RX board inside the radio ? Any
advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. 73 RJ Glenn

| 80|79|1999-11-04 22:22:54|Alex Wilson|Re: descriminator audio|
Robert:
Pin 9 of the 3357 detector is the first place to get detected audio. From that
point,
audio goes to Q257 (audio pre amp) then to J358 (look on underside of radio,
near the front. J358 is a loose jack with a jumper plug. The jumper between pin
4 and 5
has audio, but it is same as audio thats on the volume pot). If the radio has
CTCSS,
a cable from the ctcss board will be connected to J358.
Good luck.

I have a used 70-154B VHF portable that should be keypad programmable but
won't do it. Is there a jumper in the radio like ICOM IC-H16 or U16 had to
inhibit programming from the keypad? This radio works fine with the channels
it has in it but won't program new ones. Any thoughts from someone who knows
more about them?

Yes, The 154 was made by, and is the same as the Icom ...You must cut the jumper

on the keypad board, then you enter programing mode the same way as on the ICOM.

| 92|91|1999-11-13 23:12:38|Rob Lee K7TGU|Re: 70-052C memory loss...|
Pete,

Midland offered a keep alive memory kit for those radios. Perhaps the
kit is not installed or possibly the keep alive memory circuit is not
powered up. If I recall correctly, part of the kit added an additional
terminal/wire (brown) to the rear connector of the radio that needs to
go to a continuous v source. I believe that brown wire from the rear
connector was plumbed into cavity one of J363 on the tx board. If the
kit install was done neatly, you should find the original brown wire and
terminal that was in cavity one somewhere nearby with heat shrink over
the terminal. Also, I think the kit added a capacitor that attached to a
point between D404 and JP106 and ground. These components are just to
right of J363. On some tx circuit boards, one lead of the cap passes
directly through the zero on the D404 marking on the circuit board.

Will need to dig up some service info if you need any additional help.

HI ALL-

This is Midland related as it will effect the use of Midland radios in
Southern California. We are actively fighting a new 20 khz band plan on
the 440 amateur radio band that was wrongfully instigated by SCRRBA.
Since Midlands will do 25 and 12.5 khz splits, modifications are
necessary for 20 khz. A mod kit is available but is on back order with no
ship date set. We have 12 kits on back order for almost 3 months now.
The kit will allow 5 khz steps but the radio will no longer perform at
12.5 steps. Below are a few documents related to our fight.

For those of you that sell or trade radios in this region, keep this in
mind when your buyer is unable to use the radio at 20khz. We are actively
fighting this change as you can tell by the documents below.

Thanks...

The Honorable David Dreier
U.S. House of Representatives
112 North Second Avenue
Covina, California 91723

Attn: Chris Freeland

Dear Congressman Dreier:

Thank you for your letters dated August 10, 1999, and September
1, 1999, on behalf of your constituents, Messrs. Dale Buxton and Larry
Labb. These letters follow up my letter of June 29, 1999, to you. Messrs.
Buxton and Labb again reiterate their objection to certain decisions
recently made by the Southern California Repeater and Remote Base
Association (SCRRBA), an amateur service frequency coordinator in
southern California. In their August 6, 1999, letter to you Messrs.
Buxton and Labb, specifically object to the SCRRBA's technical standards
for coordinating an amateur station operating as a repeater station, its
decision to coordinate a station on a channel five kilohertz away from
another repeater station, and they object to other actions taken by the
SCRRBA. In their August 31, 1999, letter to you Messrs. Buxton and Labb
include a series of detailed questions about repeater coordination in the
amateur service, ask whether certain actions of the SCRRBA are permitted,
and ask for confirmation of answers previously received to these
questions. Your letter has been referred to this office because the
Amateur Radio Service is administered by the Public Safety and Private
Wireless Division of the FCC's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau.

By way of background, we note that the Commission's Rules and
policies applicable to frequency coordination in the amateur service were
established in a 1986 rulemaking proceeding. See Amendment of Part 97 of
the Commission's Rules Concerning Frequency Coordination of Repeaters in
the Amateur Radio Service, PR Docket No. 85-22, Report and Order (copy
enclosed), summary at 51 Fed. Reg. 17324 (1986) and Memorandum Opinion
and Order, 2 FCC Red 243 (1987). In this Report and Order, the Commission
decided to continue relying on voluntary coordination of amateur service
repeater stations because mandatory coordination of repeaters was too
drastic a remedy without first determining whether the rules adopted in
this Report and Order would address repeater-to-repeater interference.
See Report and Order, 15. The Commission also stated that because
amateur service frequency coordinators derive their authority from the
voluntary participation of the entire amateur service community, their
recognition must be derived from the same source. Thus, the Commission
stated that it was essential that frequency coordinators respond to the
broadest base of local amateurs and consider the concerns not only of
repeater owners but also of those users of spectrum affected by repeater
operation. See Report and Order, 25. Accordingly, the Commission did
not establish a mechanism to officially recognize local or regional
coordinators. Id.


The Honorable David
Dreier 2.


The amateur service rules provide, therefore, that a local or
regional frequency coordinator is responsible to amateur radio operators
whose stations are eligible to be auxiliary or repeater stations. See 47
C.F.R. 97.3(a). These operators include all individuals who hold a
Technician, Technician Plus, General, Advanced or Amateur Extra Class
operator license. See 47 C.F.R. 97.205(a). This group of licensees is
the "broadest base of local amateur operators" possible because it
includes all licensees whose stations are eligible to be auxiliary or
repeater stations. As stated in my letter dated
June 29, 1999, because frequency coordination in the amateur service is
voluntary, in this context we do not regulate frequency coordinators or
officially recognize any entity that chooses to serve as a frequency
coordinator. See Report and Order, 24-25. For this same reason, there
also is no specific Commission rule requiring the licensee or control
operator of an amateur service repeater station to obtain the approval of
a frequency coordinator before it may start transmitting messages. See
Memorandum Opinion and Order, 2 FCC Red 244; 47 C.F.R. 97.205(a).
Consequently, the frequency coordinator is responsible to the local or
regional amateur service community rather than the FCC.

While the FCC does not regulate these coordinators, per se,
because the needs of repeater users vary widely between communities, it
recognizes the value of coordination. See 47 C.F.R. 97.205(c). An
entity that considers the concerns only of repeater owners, however,
would not be considering the concerns of other users of spectrum affected
by repeater operation and, therefore, would appear at odds with the
definition of a frequency coordinator in the amateur service. We envision
that an entity not considering the concerns of other users of spectrum
affected by repeater operation can be replaced by a broad base of local
amateurs choosing another frequency coordination entity and recognizing
that entitiy's decisions. In this regard, we note that Messrs. Burton and
Labb state in their letter dated August 31, 1999, that they are forming a
new coordinating entity in southern California, Southern California
Frequency Management, which they also state will represent the entire
amateur service community. Changing coordinators is the mechanism that
the Commission anticipated amateur radio operators in a local or regional
area would use to replace a frequency coordinator that was not
representative of all local amateur radio operators or otherwise meeting
their needs. As stated in my previous response, the function of an
amateur service frequency coordinator is limited to recommending
transmit/receive channels and associated operating and technical
parameters for auxiliary and repeater stations in order to avoid or
minimize potential interference. See 47 C.F.R. 97.3(a).

We also note that the FCC's longstanding policy of permitting amateur
radio operators to collectively self-regulate coordinators of amateur
service repeater stations has generally been a resounding success. We
believe that this policy has allowed the local amateur radio community to
determine for itself whether frequency coordination is needed on a
particular amateur service band and, if so, what function(s) the local
amateur radio community is willing to allow the frequency coordinator to
perform. In this regard, we note that recently the Commission received
notification that some amateur service licensees have recognized a new
coordination entity in both Indiana and the New York City Tri-state area.
These actions were taken without the involvement of the FCC and this
approach keeps coordination at the local level, where people who more
readily have knowledge of the facts can respond to the situations
expeditiously and where the coordinator is directly answerable to the
local amateur community. As stated in my earlier letter, there are no
Commission rules governing the selection of a coordinator or the
procedures for coordination. Because the needs and conditions in the
Amateur Radio Service


The Honorable David Dreier
3.


vary widely between locations, amateur radio operators have the
flexibility to make these decisions at the local and regional level.

While the Commission receives relatively few complaints about the
decisions of frequency coordinators in the amateur service, based on the
experience of Division staff, it receives more complaints about
coordination matters in Southern California than any other area of the
country. In part, this disparity appears to be due to the unique
geographical characteristics of the area, the large concentration of
population in a relatively small land area, and the fact that amateur
radio operators have chosen to place their repeater stations at very high
elevations thereby covering large land areas with a single station's
signal. The effect of these decisions has been to limit the number of
stations that may transmit on the available amateur service channels
without interfering with each other. These unique characteristics may
best be considered in coordination decisions made at the local level,
where the coordinator answers directly to the local amateur community.

With regard to Messrs. Burton and Labb's question concerning an
e-mail response from another Commission employee, I note that the
Commission has never selected or approved any entity as a local or
regional amateur service frequency coordinator, or reviewed the
coordination decisions of a particular amateur service frequency
coordinator. In cases of interference between two or more repeater
stations, the frequency coordinator the Commission recognizes is the
entity recognized in a local or regional area by amateur operators whose
stations are eligible to be auxiliary or repeater stations. In the few
geographical areas where the local or regional amateur service community
has decided that recognition of multiple frequency coordinators for one
of the amateur service frequency bands best meets its needs, we expect
that the coordinators will cooperate with each other so that station
licensees may make the most effective use of amateur service frequencies,
as required by the amateur service rules. See 47 C.F.R. 97.101(b). In
the event that the transmissions of a repeater station cause handful
interference, as defined in Section 97.3(a) of the Commission's Rules, to
another repeater station, and both repeater stations have been
coordinated, the two station licensees are equally and fully responsible
for resolving the interference. See 47 C.F.R. 97 205(c). The fact that
multiple coordinators may be involved does not absolve the station
licensees of this responsibility.

I trust that this letter is responsive to your inquiry.

Sincerely,



D'wana R. Terry

Subject: [scfm] BANDPLAN PRESS RELEASE
Date: Fri, 3 Sep 1999



THE FOLLOWING IS A GENERAL INFORMATION ANNOUNCEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS
RELEASE...

This is a formal advisement from the Southern California Frequency
Managagement
Group.


SCRRBA MAKES CHANGES TO 440 MHZ BANDPLAN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA;
ALTERNATIVE FREQUENCY COORDINATION GROUP FORMED-



In response to a vote passed by a small number of SCRRBA members on May
1st, 1999, which would change the 440 MHz bandplan in Southern California
to a spacing of 20 KHz from 25KHz, an alternative frequency coordination
body has been formed in the region to provide other options for the
proactive amateur.

The Southern California Frequency Management Group, as the new
organization is called, is
currently coordinating area repeaters, and will continue to do so. The
group is based on a 25, 12.5 and 6.25 KHz channel spacing philosophy, in
order to more than double the number of available repeater frequencies,
which will undoubtedly reduce congestion, and allow for additional
interested parties to install repeater stations in the Southern
California region.

Local amateurs, as well as those in neighboring states, have been writing
letters to the Federal Communications Commission, as well as the American
Radio Relay League and other involved organizations, in opposition to
these changes, because of serious questions of the legality of the vote.
The majority of the amateur community in the region should have been
allowed to vote, but nevertheless, only a small handful of repeater
owners were eligible to vote at the May 1, 1999 Technical Group Meeting
hosted by SCRRBA. The FCC has officially stated, in letters to concerned
local amateurs, that the amateur community
is not required to change to the 20 KHz spacing.

The Southern California Frequency Management Group, operating in full
accordance with Title 47 CFR Part 97 in reference to definition number
47CFR Part 97.3 (a)(21)(22), 47CFR Part 97.201, 47CFR Part 97.205. Rules
pertaining to Repeater station, Auxiliary Station and Recognized
Frequency Coordinator. Will hereby make public knowledge that effective
August 1, has been conducting operations as an Official Recognized
Frequency Coordinator in the Region and State of California since July 1,
1999.

And on this 3rd day of August,1999, it is hereby declared that the
Southern California Frequency Management Group is to be understood as
providing volunteer frequency
coordination services to Amateur Radio Operators licensed by the Federal
Communications Commission who wish to utilize its free services. It is
to also be understood by the Southern California Frequency Management
Group that Frequency Coordination is not required by the Federal
Communications Commission but merely an agreement between amateur radio
operators, but in the case of repeater to repeater interference it is up
to both stations to resolve interference unless one station is
recommended by a frequency coordinator.

It is also to be understood by all Amateur Radio Operators and Other
coordinating bodies that may coordinate repeaters (frequencies) in the
Region and State of California, that if the Southern California Frequency
Management Group awards coordination to a station on a
vacant channel in a geographical area that is not being used at the time
of application then it is hereby declared that the frequency has been
coordinated by the Southern Califonira Frequency Management Group.
Prior to coordinating a station, the Southern California Frequency
Management Group will verify by means of utilizing good engineering
practice if a particular frequency can be used in a geographical area
without causing harmful
interference to adjacent channel or co-channel systems. It is also to be
understood that the Southern California Frequency Management Group will
coordinate frequencies utilizing good engineering and commercial
standards thus creating additional available spectrum for repeater
stations, or auxiliary stations to operate on a co-channel basis by the
implementation of receiver access conditions, ie; subaudible tone access,
or digital
access modes.

The Southern California Frequency Management Group will offer to work
with current coordinating bodies in the State or Region of California,
and will provide legal proof and documentation of coordination to any
other coordinating body within the State or Region of California. It is
also to be understood that the Southern California Frequency Management

I am very interested in one of these programmers. Do you personally have
them or does the fellow in Aus. have them? If so - does he have an e-mail

Hello all.......


This is a heads up on some problems encountered when adding a scan kit
and programming scan in an original A74 microprocessor, found in some of
the Oregon State Parks low bands.


Installed new dash mount scan kits 70-2141 and radio would not scan
properly. After a number of frustrating changes, we discovered that the
microprocessor (located under the e-prom) was one of the older original
chips. Newer versions are a type 4484 chip, the older ones are a type
4480 chip. The older chips were for the 36 channel Midlands which were
produced during the first few years of the Syntech line. A kit was
available in the early 80's to change out the microprocessor to a current
version. Cannot locate any such part number or option kit in 1989 or
later data sheets.


There are specific instructions for adding scan to an older chip, page 23
of the 70-1000 operators manual. Simply, all scan A channels MUST be
programmed in band channel positions 0-31. Scan B channels MUST be
programmed in band channel positions 32-63 in the A scan mode. No
channels can be programmed in the B scan mode. A scan button will use
channels 0-31, B scan button will use channels 32-63. There appears to be
no priority revert in A scan nor can you program a modified scan mode.



You must also manually change scan speeds by going to:

Reset
Manual
404
Enter
02
Enter
Reset


This will force the scan into 10 channels a second, scan revert 2.5
seconds


WHEW!!!! Hope this saves some of you a few hours of frustration and
trying to figure out if you installed the scan kit improperly.

I went into the XTR.CHL file and edited the VHF L top end frequency to read 540
to allow the 6 meter range. Mine now goes from 390 to 540 on the "C" range

HI, Everyone. I ordered and received the Midland 70-1000C programmer from
Peter in Austrailia. It was new, includes the software, programming manual,
and a 9 pin computer cable. I tested mine and it worked just fine. It does
take about ten (10) days to receive it though, so you will need to be
patient. He told me on the phone that he has about 50 of these when this was

I'm using a 70-526b as a receiver in a small rpt. setup. Has anyone found an output pin that provides both TOS/COS with a ctcss tone board installed, I've set a function on the controller to switch back and forth the monitor circuit from COS to TOS. The best I've come up with is the COS sq. sense trigger on the main board for a COS only circuit. This way only mutes the audio due to the tone board, still leaving the COS active. Not a true TOS/COS output pin. Any info on a good TOS/COS output pin on the ctcss board will help. IC circuit loading also seems to be a problem with gate circuits or transistor switching circuits.

In a recent eBay listing I saw mention of a "yellow wire" conversion which
purportedly eliminates the obnoxious beep which occurs when a signal appears
on the priority channel during scan. Anybody have any details on this mod?

Bob KC7TGA
| 109|108|2000-01-21 01:03:55|ki7ax@juno.com|Re: Yellow Wire?|
It's not a difficult mod. All you do is cut the yellow wire with a set
of wire cutters.

You will find the "famous yellow wire" as follows:

Remove the top cover of any Syntech 1 radio, dash or trunk.

With the front of the radio facing you, topside up, locate the multi
color loom
connected to J364 on the far right front side of the radio.

The color code on the loom from left to right is-
purple,blue,green, yellow,orange,red,brown

Cut the yellow wire and tape the ends.

This will eliminate the beep alert for priority scan, time out timer, and
PLL unlock.

As you are facing the front of the radio with the top cover removed,
look at the front right-hand corner of the module. The plug in wire
harness to the far right has a yellow wire. Cutting this wire will
eliminate the beep on priority scan receive.

Bill,

As others have indicated, they go down nicely into the ham band.  Caution!  When tuning the Power Amplifier, us a completely insulated fiber tuning tool.  The last tuned stage is so hot while tuning that it will heat up a metal tipped tool like GC or even the Motorola 'diddle stick'.  I have had success with a totally fiber tool supplied with the RCA 500-700-1000 series mobiles.

Programing is also no fun.
Bantam mobile is about the only Midland that I sell. I tried the
Bantam portable, it seems to be in the Midland tradition of
having really BAD portables.
Note, I have done all I can to stick with Midland, having been a dealer
since 1984. You might also note, the guy that bought Relm/Uniden is the same
guy that once bought Midland, raped it for all it was worth, and left it in
the dust
to die. Some that I talk to think he will do the same with Relm.
Just my opinion.

We have 200 hundred Titan 50 watt units and about 12 of the 110 watt titan
units in service and we have been getting a mixed response back from the
field. The one of biggest complaints is the lack of the channel recall
button. Some don't like the squelch control, I have one in my service van and
if the internal squelch is adjust properly you can set the external squelch
and forget about it and the unit will work just fine. the only signals you
don't receive are those that are below the 12 db sinad level which are
unreadable.
I have close contact with Midland in Kanas City, Mo. they are telling us that
there will be a new Titan II out soon with some of the items that the
customers don't like being rectified and also a new firmware mod to add the
recall button option back in the programing.
The receive is considerably hotter than the xtr. However you will have more
intermod.

I think the reserve is $350.00. I purchased one from him and it was Brand
new with the software and cable. It works great. Happy Easter. Butch

Hello, Pete
I had a progamer for the 245, but I loaned it out to a member of the LMR
list last September.
He has yet to return it or reimburse me for the overnight shipping :( I
guess we learn the hard way.
Anyway, I dont know of any PC programing for that radio. I have been a
Midland dealer since 1984, and we always
bitched about having to buy programers....I have 4!!!.
I will email this guy one more time about the one that I sent to him... If I
can get it back, I will let you have it on loan.

To all you Midland gurus!

Anyone shed some light on a Z-326 module. It appears to wired in between
the CTCSS board
and the Z-273 program module in a Syntech mobile.
First time I have seen this.

Thanks,

Jon

HI Jon-

I can't verify numbers, just tried to look it up in my documents, but no
luck. My ONLY guess, is that the module is the talk around (direct)
board. If it has a brown wire from the board to the prom, that's what it
is. Otherwise, I'm as lost as you are.

Can anyone provide some info to me on these radios. In reference to
bandwiths etc. I am looking at running one on 476MHz. Any websites
that provide info? I know that this version is programmed with the
same as an AWA.

Any suggestions?

Check your VCO voltage.  Should be 4.5 volts TX and RX.

Thanks for the e-mail.  Where is "CM-701" (the VCO test point)?  I have stared at the Midland multicolored board layout drawings until I'm cross eyed and I still don't see it.

There are two tests points. Radio is facing you one test point is
towards the right front of the synthesizer module. It's between two
shields and looks like a small nail sticking out of the module. The
other is to the left rear of the module. Hope this helps.

Calling all Syntech II experts!

I have several Syntech IIs on lowband, highband, and UHF that all exhibit
the same problem. I hear an audible hum on signals received on channels I
have programmed for CTCSS decode. It doesn't matter if the signals being
received have CTCSS on them or not. I hear it in mute if the in coming
signal has the correct CTCSS and I hear it in monitor no matter what CTCSS
code is being sent or even if there is no CTCSS code being sent.
Programming the high pass filter on or off has no effect. By the way, the
hum heard sounds like CTCSS but is always the same frequency, no matter
what code has been programmed.

Signals received on channels that have not been programmed for CTCSS decode
do not exhibit this hum, no matter if they have CTCSS codes being sent or not.

Has anyone noticed this problem or am I doing something wrong in the program?

Thanks,

Jon

| 151|150|2000-06-01 05:11:39|J-MarCom|Re: [MidlandLMR] Syntech Low Band EEPROM|
RJ,

If the broken part is the prom and not the board that it is mounted to, the proms are available over the counter for under $10.00.
27C16 rings a bell.  If the board module is broken, you will have to keep asking around for one.  They are sometimes hard to come
by.  Many of these radios that are surplus have had them removed.  Somwhere out there, there are boxes of prom modules in boxes under some service tech's bench.

Good luck,

Jon

shows. If you cant locate a 27c16 let me know, and can send you one. The

I don't know the evolutionary history of the XTR vs. the Syntech II's.

Do you remember the old eeprom for the 70-050 and 056's that had the
programming to scan at the old 3 channel/second rate instead of the newer 10
channel/second rate? I have one of them and it is programmed up with 50 six
meter channels (oh, by the way, only 36 of them would go in the A scan list
and the rest in B, what is THAT all about???). Can I change something in
the eeprom to make it scan faster? Hell of a good six meter radio, it just
scans SLOW.

Which radios do the different programmers program? I know the 70-1000 does
the Syntech I's...anything else? What about the others? You are in a
unique position to enlighten lots of folks about this.

I have three 70-1080 programmers...one is an older 1080 upgraded
to A status...the other two were bought as 1080As...
The upgraded one I put V19.0 software in (copied from one of the
others) and it worked for a while....
NOW, when the unit powers up in the Syntech II prgming mode, it
displays a Err08 in the LCD....any ideas? If I let the memory
drain empty (time wise!) and power it on where it asks which
model I wish to program, it will work ok in XTR, HH or 8CH mode..
but when I select II for Syntech II, it allows me to enter
stuff...but on power cycle, ERR08 shows up again...
also I cannot RAM CLR from Syntech II mode..

Maybe the EPROM got a glitch in the firmware???

    I recently acquirred a deluxe control head for a Syntech II Midland.
    BUT the faceplate does not match anything in the programming manual!
    The std or aux faceplates are totally different...the one I have
    has LEDs in the following config:
    Column 1 top to bottom: P1,SCAN,P2,TX,BUSY (Last three match manual)
    Column 2 top to bottom: MON,AUX, NO LED,NO LED, FUNC
    My programming manual shows MON where P1 is in ALL configs...so I
    suspect this was a late model or special order deluxe head...so I
    guess I need to manually change some hex bits in the programmer..
    ALSO the pushbuttons are slightly different...where the ENT/CLR
    keys are in the manual is where the ADD/DEL keys are! ENT is upper
    left button (normally MON) with MON as the FUNC on that key!!!
    and there is an AUX key (3rd on the right)...dont know WHAT it was
    for (maybe rptr?)...

    Anyway IF you have the Deluxe Control head manual for the Midland
    Syntech II, I would appreciate any and all head...I want to put
    this head on my Syntech II so I change the ENC and DEC codes from
    the keypad on the head..and the NAME readout on the head is a nice
    feature...but doesnt do me any good as is...Im sure some changes
    to the programming and it should work (there is a selection in the
    programming manual I cannot see in my 1080A programmer...its in
    Appendix E and step 4.1-D is DELUXE HEAD CONFIG....my programmer

    I have several 70-1340B units that were placed in service about the
    same time suddenly giving me an E3 error. The error appears
    occasionally and not long enough to trouble shoot. I have tried
    varying power supply voltages, and cooling and heating components.
    voltages in the manual flowchart for this error appear correct.
    Anyone have anything like this before?

    I have never been able to get my 70-1000 programmer to work with any
    parallel dot matrix printer besides the Midland printer. A number of
    years ago Midland tech support told me that any parallel dot matrix
    printer should work with the programmer. I was not concerned about
    it until now because the Midland printer died. I have thought about
    getting a parallel to serial converter and importing to my computer.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    My 70-342B will jump to a different channel maybe one out of one-
    hundred times the mike is keyed. Knowing this I look at the channel
    display each time I key up. Sometimes I have a remote mike plugged in
    and am unable to watch the display, thus finding myself on the wrong
    channel. Also have a packet radio freq in it and because of the
    frequent transmission this happens often. Thought it might be RF
    getting back into the set but the ant is distant and the SWR is fine.
    Power source is heavy enough and supply voltage does not drop on key
    up. Several other techs have said they heard of this occational
    problem with the 340 series but have never resolved it. Any thoughts?

    Well gang, found a strange one.......picked up some 800 and uhf trunk
    mounts at the Flagstaff AZ hamfest.

    There is an option board with no pcb i.d number on it. The board mounted
    under the e-prom, between IC 901 and J361, and the colored loom from the
    PL board plugs into it. There is a short 2-3 inch jumper that plugs into
    the e-prom where the PL board normally plugs in. There is also a single
    wire jumper that is soldered to pin40 of the IC 901 under the e-prom. All
    this board has for a component is a HD14174BP 16 pin IC and 2 white molex
    plugs, one from the PL board, the other to the prom.

    Checked the options book and nothing looks like it. I pulled the board
    from the sticky tape and there is no 70-xxxx pcb number on the bottom. It
    does appear that it can be removed and the PL board simply plugged back
    into the prom. The single wire jumper to IC 901 would have to be removed.

    BUT WHAT IS IT?????? Not the normal looking DTMF or 2 tone decoder.

    Al-

    Mine also, still can not figure out what option it is. I programmed and
    tested the 2-800 mhz and
    1-uhf trunk mounts today. I by-passed the option board and ran it back
    again through the option board with no difference in performance. None of
    the control heads have any notation for horn honk, reset, etc. to
    indicate a decoder option. All 3 heads have the normal monitor, priority,
    scan buttons. The only difference is a K33 5 pin mic connector for the
    DTMF mics.

    Since LA City FD is 800 conventional with 19 channels, it gave me a good
    test program for the 2- 800 mhz radios. They are the 15 watt versions.
    Original programming had a single repeater and talk around, so my guess
    is still that the boards are some type of a decoder for the autopatch
    feature on the original system. Since the uhf radio had a like board and
    the radios came from the same source, I would guess that the uhf system
    ran back to back with the 800 or at least was used in the same type of
    service.

    This is the first option I have run across in 20 years of Midland playing
    that does not have a
    70-xxxx pcb number on the bottom. It is definitely a Midland factory
    option though.

    Interesting to find "new" boards that are 15 years old.........

    Thanks for the reply.

    OK -

    By the cross reference : http://www.brinkleyelectronics.com/radioid/midid.htm
    the radio should be an 8 channel, UHF, 25 watt front mount mobile.

    If I remember correctly, it did not use a standard Z-273 EPROM board, as it
    required an adapter board to be programmed with the 70-1000 programmer.

    I also seem to remember a mod that could give you 8 more channels by tieing one of
    the front panel switches to the eprom module.

    I can program it also if needed.

    It's 8 channels, 25 watts . The VHf version is a 70-336b, 8 channels, 35
    watts. looks just like a Syntech 1 but has black plastic faceplate. Takes
    an adapter to program it on the 70-1000. Available only in dash mount
    configurations.

    UHF, 8 channel, 25 watts, 450 to 470 Mhz is correct.  You can get 30 to 35 watts out of it and there is a mod kit to convert it to 16 channels (8X2).   Good radio with approx. 4 Mhz frequency separation, TX & RX.

    The 526 is a junior version of the 70-530 syntech 1 series.
    It is part of the "LMR" series. The 526 was replaced by the 1526 (8 ch), and
    now the 1527 (20 ch, Bantam series)
    The XTR radio is a 70-1530 (22 ch)

    Hi group

    Does anyone know of any good Midland radio sites?
    In relation to the radios does anyone know much of the 70 XXX series
    radios? The three numbers that follow are obviously in relation to
    the bands but what are they! (2m, 70cm & UHF CB is what I am after)
    Hopefully someone can help!

    The radios are mobiles with a front mounted speaker,
    vol & squelch rotary buttons on the front face on the bottom
    and a small LCD display (some being green)

    If anyone can tell me the numbers that would be appreciated, I know
    that there has been a list come up before but I am little "lost" with
    it

    Also do they use the Midland 70-1000 stand alone eprom programmer?

    I look forward to the replies
    | 192|192|2000-08-07 16:10:25|cboone@earthlink.net|Re: [MidlandLMR] Midland 70 XXXX series?|
    This is the place to ask about the Midland LMR radios...
    the 70-xxx are all commercial two way radios....and are usually
    capable of being moved to the 2mtr and 70cm ham bands...
    the UHF GMRS (the former Class A and B) band is at 460 MHz and
    right in the middle of the normal 450-470 MHz LMR range...

    The Syntech I synthesized models use the 70-1000 programmer...
    the xtal models of course do not...and there was one model it
    seems that had to use an adaptor to be programmed by the 70-1000
    (the 70-526?) it was not a std 80channel Syntech I but a cheaper
    version....though I never worked on it myself...

    The models are usually as such
    70-05xA/B/C low band 30-50 MHz
    A=30-36 (can go to 10m) B=36-42 B=42-50MHz (can go to 6m)

    70-3xxA/B and the 70-4xxA/B VHF High band models
    two ranges 136-160=A and 160-174=B...one model..I think the 342?
    was wideband enough to cover the entire range...not sure of its
    number right now...did modify one to cover RCC mobile phone, NOAA
    wx and LMR channels with CTCSS using the channel display to turn on
    or off the 2805 decoder for RCC....that was a neat trick I did..the
    customer bought two of them!)

    70-5xx A/B/C/D UHF Ranges here were A=406-430 (Canadian use),
    70-6xx B=450-470, C=470-494 and D=494-520MHz
    The A or B can be used on amateur but the B
    can be stagger tuned to cover amateur and
    460 commercial/GMRS as well (some minor loss
    of rcvr sens but still good enough!)

    Hope that helps...I claim no accuracy for this list.

    When programming midland radios with the 70-1000 programmer is there a way to change the band modifier without having to shut the thing down and rest it that way loosing all your freqs?
     
    We got a lot of midland radios (surplus) and we are programming them for the local FD.  The agency we got them from erased all the eproms and some of the radios require the band split of 150 and some require modifiers like A, B,C, or D.  We have been programming one eprom then shutting the programmer off then changing the band and then reentering the freqs info.
     
    Any help would be appreciated?
     
    Also we have some of the older 378 eproms that require the adapter board.  We have lost our board and was needing to program some eproms.  Does any one have a spare?  Or can I make one for it?

    70-2102C is a ctcss board and is programmed when chanel info is programmed
    in the syntec 1 series. Should be a cable from eprom module to it that tells
    the tone board what freq for each channel if same as syntec 1.

    Dirk
    yes, it does have the cable from the eprom module to the 70-2102A. The board
    is out of a 70-530B. When programming CTCSS on a per channel basis this can
    be done using the 70-1000 programmer? What tones does the CTCSS board do?
    What ever you tell it I suppose!
    thanks

    Same as the B & C boards......all 2102 boards are CTCSS boards, just
    different updates and versions. 2101 is an encode only, 2102
    encode/decode.

    I picked up a couple of these and was told they were 80 channel and
    would go to 6 meters. I haven't had time to open one and wondered if
    the prom was removable (to be programmed in an external programmer)
    or
    it required a special programmer. If removable, is there software
    available that would let me use my prom programmer to generate the

    Yes they will go to 6 (VCO and front end on RX will need retuning)..
    You need a 70-1000A prgmmer or the software and the ERPOM module
    pgmmer (70-1000C) if you donot desire to remove the EPROM from the
    module board...I can do them...or you can remove the EPROM (I would
    then put a SOCKET on the module so you easily remove/install later)
    and use a regular EPROM burner I think..but I have never had to do that

    I have a Syntech I model 70-55C.  I think I have damaged my CPU.  I while back a had the radio mounted in a cabinet with the covers off.  I was tinkering and touched my watchband (metal) to the back of the eeprom.  The radio immediately quit working and displayed a "94" on the display, as well a triple beep.   My manual says that a code 90-94 indicates a missing eeprom, an improperly installed eeprom, a blank eeprom, or an improperly programmed eeprom.  I took the eeprom out and had it reprogrammed thinking I had corrupted or erased the data.  They guy who reprogrammed it said he was able to read the data out of it with no problem.  He reprogrammed it still, tried it out on one of his radios (it worked) and sent it on back to me.  Now I get a rapid triple beep that comes & goes and a "00" on the display.  Nothing else happens.  Going through the trouble shooting procedure I'm left to believe I have ruined the CPU.  Anybody have any ideas?  Does anybody have a HD44840A27 cpu they would like to part with ?  Thanks

    Robert,
    since you sent a msg to me and the list, I thought I would reply
    here :)

    Sounds like the CPU is shot or maybe the mux chip that selects the
    memory from the EPROM to the CPU...if there is one..I havent worked
    on a Syntech I series in a long while (since 1984!)...and dont have
    any of the svc manuals...you MIGHT try some of the Midland dealers
    or if you prefer you can contact Midland directly...but the cost wont
    be cheap...but I bet there are some of the larger Midland shops that have
    left over parts from the old I series they would be GLAD to get rid
    of for maybe 5-10 bucks...if they havent thrown them out already..

    Or maybe one of the guys here may have a spare CPU board...if it was
    Syntech II, I could help..have such a beast (radio took reverse DC with
    the diode removed!!!! I got it for free and found the PA is shot...not
    sure about the CPU and TX/ RX boards yet..)

    Thanks for your reply. I've been unable to locate any Midland shops here in NE
    Fla. I did find a 70-52C Midland on ebay that doesn't have the eeprom or tone
    board. Sounds custom made for my stuation, if it works. We'll see what
    happens there. If it doesn't work out, I'll be back on the hunt.

      Gentlemen I wonder if you can help. I have a 70-265 48B which has been
      upgraded to a 99 channel set. The problem is it won't program below 450Mhz,
      I've managed to prog a standard 70-265-48B below 450 by modifying the radio
      identity in software. However the same fix gives a program error 5 (wrong
      frequency band) on the 99 ch set. If I try the 99A software I get the same
      error but using the 99C software it progs ok from 480-512. Anyone know how
      to prog it below 450??

      Since this is for ham use, you may want to modify the head and use
      the monitor switch to activate scan. As you probably know, the two
      scan buttons are for priority scan and regular scan. This has
      worked great for me.

      You said Syntech I, but what's the exact model number of your radio? I have
      several complete scan kits left over my from Midland Dealer days.

      What programmer are you using, the Propriatary Midland box, or Computer software and a RIB box?
      I am not sure about the Midland programmer but the software driven programming can be modified to widen
      the frequency parameters and it works well.

      056b is a 35-44 mhz split radio. Will not tune to 6 meters. It is prom
      programmable, no cables or software required. 110 watt 80 channels.

      Steve & Ian, after looking at the schematic it looks like it is a RS-232 - TTL
      conv...
      It looks like everything is done via the headphone jack.. The jack is a 3 cond.
      and
      the input pin looks to be the center ring. Can't tell from the drawing, but
      would imagine that the tip is speaker output. That feeds a couple of op amps on
      the CPU
      board and the line is labeled "prog-in".. There is no line tied to the tip for
      data out
      but they do have a line that feeds the input of the audio amp. that they use
      for beeps
      and other noises... I can't see why they can't use that line to send data back..
      Just a
      guess? Another guess they would use Txd & Rxd to talk to the computer.. This
      is all speculation on my part but if yon can't find anything it might be a place
      to
      start... Pete N2MCI

      The radio was putting out about 5W and I know it was doing 75.. I went
      though the PA and found that if I retuned the final 2 Caps I could get about
      15w
      but the caps were almost closed as to being almost open when I orig. tuned
      it
      up.. Once I retuned it, I found the Left Trans. hotter that the right.. I
      pulled both
      off the board.. I also pulled 2 off and old def. PA board.. Using a

      test on a DMM, the left measured 37 the right 20.. The other 2 were 6 and
      41..
      I put the the 37 & 41 pack into the board and in one of my dumber moments
      put
      the orig. left (37) back into its same spot.. The power is still at 15w.. I
      also

      The radio was putting out about 5W and I know it was doing 75..




      My 70-056 only did 50-55 out.




      I went
      though the PA and found that if I retuned the final 2 Caps I could get about
      15w
      but the caps were almost closed as to being almost open when I orig. tuned
      it
      up..




      It sounds like you were tuning those two caps on a subharmonic instead of
      the true frequency.




      Once I retuned it, I found the Left Trans. hotter that the right.. I
      pulled both
      off the board.. I also pulled 2 off and old def. PA board.. Using a
      Transistor hfe
      test on a DMM, the left measured 37 the right 20.. The other 2 were 6 and
      41..
      I put the the 37 & 41 pack into the board and in one of my dumber moments
      put
      the orig. left (37) back into its same spot.. The power is still at 15w..




      Why not replace all four of them (use silicone grease where appropriate) and
      try again.

      Also, the 75watts out, are you SURE that is the right power output level for
      that radio?




      I
      also
      used a RF voltage probe and orig. measured the right side as having more
      output
      that the left and a lower input voltage too. and after I sapped the trans.,
      I'm still seeing the same type of thing.. My next step is to swap trans. or
      just replace the
      left one.. When I had both trans. out I did look for differences in the DC
      imp. of
      each (Both in & out).. I am using the radio on 6M.









      The fact that you are using the radio on 6 meters, which would mean that
      your tuning caps would be OUT, or at minimum capacity, instead of IN, or at
      maximum capacity, led me to my earlier statement about being tuned up on a
      subharmonic. What led to the "burn-out"? Bad antenna??? (unlikely, since
      there is a protection circuit there). or something else?


      I guess my question is is there any common problems in the PA with this
      radio?





      Not with mine, or any other one that my friends have converted and used.




      \


      Or any other suggestions? Sorry for the long story..




      No problem. Feel free to write me and I will try to help. My poor
      neglected Midland 6 meter rig sits abandoned on my storeroom. Maybe I can
      get yours fixed and you can take my place on 6!!! HI! Or maybe you want to
      buy mine, I don't know.

      Can anyone tell me if the Midland 70-254B, hand-held is programmable
      through the keypad on the front panel,( ala King hand-held ). If so,
      what is the secret to getting into the programming mode ?
      Thanks Chuck W6QWN
      | 248|247|2000-10-27 01:53:43|AlexWilson|Re: 70-254b|
      Yes it is.
      There is a small wire jumper on the side of the circuit board that is
      closest to the front of the radio.
      If your real lucky, someone may have removed it. If not,
      then you will have to take the radio apart to get to the jumper.
      Once it is out, you enter program mode by holding down the "shift" button
      (the one above the PTT) and entering 159357
      on the keypad. you should then be in program mode. Keep holding the shift
      button.
      fnc 5= frequency
      fnc 4= tx offset frequency
      fnc 1 and fnc 2 are for tx and rx pl code (never could remember which was
      which. The PL tone is a 2 digit code, like on a relm...like 18= 127.3, I
      think.
      fnc and the upper right keypad button takes it out of program mode.
      If you have a problem, I will get one of the radios in front of me. I can do
      it almost without looking when I am holding the radio. I havent done one all
      year.
      Good luck

      Thanks, Jim, for adding more info.
      I have never seen one that had the jumper on the top side of the board, but
      I have used a pick and pushed the jumper down,while keeping heat on the
      spot, without taking the board out. Sometimes it works.

      Check in the radio and see if the optional CTCSS board is in there..
      it is usually an upside down board under the top cover...with
      a pot for CTCSS adjustment on xmit...I dont recall the model number
      but know what it looks like...
      If the board is there, all you need is to program tone on the channels
      and maybe add the MON button if its not already on the front..

      I have a few of the above radios and want to put them on the ham

      me which I can then use on a standard EPROM programmer to program the
      chip.
      I have seen a very basic program but this will not enable me to
      change the band of the radio or enter any of the scan and priority
      details,it will not do the 70-155B at all.
      I realise that there is a Midland programmer that will do this for me
      but I do not have access to one.
      Any help on programming these radios I would be very gratful.

      I did not receive my original post to the list...so here it goes again.

      I have the above radio available for sale. It is currently programmed with 6m
      repeaters and simplex frequencies. Worked very well while I had it in my
      Taurus...removed it in July because I was getting rid of the car.

      Radio is in excellent condition. Prior to my install it literally looked as if
      it had never been installed before.

      It has been sitting on the self since July. I would like to see $200 out of
      it....any takers here?

      Thanks...

      Does anyone have (or know where I can find) a 70-1000 programmer for
      sale? I picked up a few 70-055C radios and now need to get them
      programmed and would like to have the capability to do that myself.

      I read a thread from a year or so ago about a software-based
      programmer from Australia. Anyone know anything about that?

      I'm also looking for manuals for this radio.


      BTW, I came across this list searching the Web for info on Midland
      radios. I made a spur of the moment purchase and bought these things
      only knowing they were low band and supposedly work!(and the price
      was right!!!). This list has been a GREAT source of info for a
      Midland novice like me. Thanks to everyone whose posted info here.

      HI, Rick. I have his email address and it is $350.00 for the programmer with
      disk, cable and you will need to add the wal wart transformer. You will need
      an ultraviolet light eraser to erase the prom. Then you re-program it. I
      will have to look for the information and get back to you. Butch.

      Yes, if you have the adaptor for the upright eprom module
      that goes in the 336/526 mobiles.
      By the way, you can also modify them to do 16 channels.

      Hi All

      Is the 70-1000 programmer a stand alone unit or an adapter that plugs
      onto the PC?

      I need to know what options are required when you program a EPROM.

      If it is software driven can anyone supply me with a copy of the
      software so that I can run it and find out what parameters are
      required when I send my EPROM away for programming.

      Many thanks for your help

      spread. Don't understand the PL question though...must be that snow up

      Re my earlier message, the version we used was a very early version of
      the software, which was developed here in Australia. P.J. must have
      gotten rid of all the 30 and 40 mhz band syntechs on the networks he

      The 70-1000C seems to work well and is a good trade off as opposed to
      the current selling price for the 70-1000. It does have one drawback
      that I'm aware. The version that I am using does not allow you to use
      the direct feature on a channel programmed with a repeater pair (we are
      talking non-wideband units here). In fact, if you read a prom with a
      70-1000C that has been programmed with the direct feature using a
      70-1000 and then write that same program to a new prom with the
      70-1000C, the direct portion of the program will have disappeared. This
      of course does not stop you from devoting a single channel for direct
      use. This has not been a big issue for me with the exception of UHF
      Amateur Service where 88 channels limits the number of repeater pairs
      usable in the radio.

      Someone has already done some work here.. Check out :
      http://www.morgan2.demon.co.uk/ and click on Midland 70-340B..
      It just basically programs the radio freq's.. It doesn't do Tone's or
      Scan stuff.. Since the Tone board uses a MXcom encoder/decoder
      chip, the data sheet is for it it or similar is mostly available to
      get the data for each tone. It would just be a matter of finding it
      in the hex/binary file..

      Its as follows Andy:

      189C 1st digits of upper band limit (x10Mhz..so if it shows 47, that =
      470Mhz on UHF; 05 =50Mhz on lowband)

      189D last digit of upper band limit (x 0.1 Mhz + 189D digits;
      20 = 2.0MHz + 189D MHz)

      189E is 1st digits of lower band limit (x 10Mhz)

      189F is last digits of lower band limit (x0.1 Mhz+189E)

      Band limits defaults in low and UHF bands (C and B models)
      189C 189D 189E 189F
      42 Mhz low 04 20
      50 Mhz high 05 00
      To change this allow 6mtr operation;
      54 Mhz upper 05 40

      The A model on VHF Hi goes into the 2mtr band already...
      note the UHF A model (406-430) can also go into the 440 band

      Midland 70-1630B UHF mobile. WIth scanning head, 4 meter shielded control
      cable, mounting tray, mic and power cable. Unit was pulled from service.

      Control head and mic in good shape, as is the main radio. However, there
      are some scratches from normal wear and tear.

      Asking $150, shipping at my cost to the continental US.

      Hi:

      New to the group and was wondering if anyone has info that will help
      me make a printer cable for the 1080? I had a factory one once, but
      lost it and don't know how the pinouts are set up between the 34 pin
      ribbon connector and the 36 pin Centronics on the other end!

      Help?!!

      Hi Forrest...

      I've never tried it but sometime in the last several months on this
      system someone said that a standard 36 pin computer ribbon cable would
      work... that would be a floppy disk cable, as IDE cables have 40 pins.

      Those ribbon cables typically have all the odd numbered conductors wired
      common and to ground, starting with #1 at the red stripped edge, so you
      should check the circuit IF you have data on it.. if that is a problem,
      and you might ground out something that would be the cause of an
      additional problem, you might need to modify the cable or the connections
      some how.. Just a thought..

      Best,

      Hi Dick:

      Yes, I have a floppy cable ribbon connector and a ribbon cable Centronics
      connector, but since the # of pins doesn't match and I don't know enough
      (nor have a schematic of the unit) I don't know what to do and fear
      experimenting. I was hoping someone on the list might have a cable and
      could tell me exactly what was what.

      If I get any more desperate, I may just open the box and see what the
      circuit board looks like where the connector jack is for a hint.

      Thanks for the info!

      this is as it is shown in the service manual for the 70-1300 printer, should
      be the same for the 70-1000 programer as well as the 70-1080.

      Sorry group the remailer reformated the lay out but you sill can fig it out.

      programer pin #1= ground = printer pin# 19
      programer pin#2=  Strobe = printer pin#   1

      and so on, I had pins all offset to there positions and the remailer must not
      like that.
      any questions just email me.

      Mark:

      First, thanks very much. I appreciate your effort. The formatting got
      jumbled a bit due to the list server I imagine, but I have restructured it
      below. Would you take a quick look and make sure I did it correctly? Also,
      I was a little confused by what the last few pins did. The format I used
      was just to put slashes between things so that hopefully the emailer won't
      separate them this time.

      Just a couple final questions. Do pins 24, 25 and 34 just connect to pins
      12, 31 and 18 on the printer side? And pin 36 on the printer side just
      seemed to be hanging there. Does it connect to anything?

      Thanks again. This will allow me to either make it myself or have it made.

      Bought two DTMF Midland mics a while back..one 2103 model and the
      other a 2104...both key the radios (2103 is on a XTR, the 2104 is
      on a Syntech II)...up/down buttons work on the Syntech II and
      mic audio sometimes (broken solder or wire at the plug)...
      The 2103 does not put out any audio...and neither puts out DTMF..
      the circuitry looks ok....looking at the schematics, I think I need
      to supply a voltage to pin 3 of the XTR mic jack...but the Syntech II
      does that already (8V)....is there something I am missing? It may
      be the voltage lead to the DTMF ckt is also broken...havent taken
      the plug apart yet to look...

      Thought I'd ask the group and see....(does the 2103 need voltage for
      the mic audio to work? hhmmmm)

      Hello to all,
      I picked up a 70-1052 programer and the software awhile back and
      tryed to use it today only to find that the computer cannot see the
      programer, it keeps telling me to turn the programer on.

      Is the cableing a standard Null modem cable or is it a special
      pinout ?. If any one has the manual on useage I will gladly cover
      copy and mail cost.

      Any help at this point is excepted , as I have 2 units that I need to
      get up and running.

      Thank you

      The 1025 I have ,uses a 9 pin to 9 pin straight through lead, not null

      correct com port selected in the software?

      The com port is set right, PC is selected on the interface. I have tried
      standard cable, built a null with partial handshaking and one with full
      handshaking.

      The partial did get the message to turn on the interface not to show, but
      keeps asking me to turn on the radio even after it is turned on....   The
      radios Iam trying to set up are 70-166-16, so far I have managed to
      completely Blank out one of these units.

      I did open up the interface to look for any damage, all looks OK I do see
      that there is several jumper settings inside but have no Idea what they are
      for.
      I would have thought that this setup would have been eazy to use compared to
      what you have to go through with the likes of 70-1000 or a 70-1082 standalone.

      I will keep trying to sort it out.

      Hi there Forrest,

      Stereo Mini is what I have, Both ends.

      When I turn interface on I get the confirmation beep and all seems Ok.
      Problem is  software not seeing the interface.

      Hmmm, well, I haven't programmed mine, nor used the programmer in ages, but
      I still have it all. In fact I use a 70-166-16B and need to change a couple
      freqs. I'll see if I can come up with any further insight. Are you sure
      that your version of the software matches the firmware of the interface?

      Softare is Version 2.10

      as far as the Firmware the HK-451 chip  has 1.4 on it, this is U3 on the
      motherboard.
      Jumpers are set as follows  CN2 is set to position #4, and CN3 is set to
      position  #1.
      | 343|336|2001-03-26 07:06:54|Forrest|Re: 70-1052 help needed|
      My jumpers are set the same. My main board says HK-451A.

      I think I have the software on my laptop. Will check and see.

      Need grain?  Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green
      leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your
      recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop. 

      Q: Is beer or wine bad for  me?

      A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we
      all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three
      categories:  animal, mineral, and vegetable. We all know that beer and wine
      are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so
      that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: have a burger and a beer and
      enjoy your liquid vegetables. 

      Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

      A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio
      is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

      Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

      A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain-No Pain.

      Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

      A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact,
      they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

      Q: What's the secret to healthy eating?

      A: Thicker gravy.

      Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

      A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger.  You should
      only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.   I hope this  has cleared up
      any misconceptions you may have had.

      I have been offered a midland 70-056C low band remote mounted radio

      can some kind person provide me with the specs on this radio, such as
      channels, power, scan, and options and is this pc programmable or
      need an eeprom programmer

      Thanks

      42-50Mhz 80 channel, 100watts programmable...usually has a
      Noise Blanker for noise...but not always...its an optional
      board that mounts upside down over the IF section of the rcvr
      and has a TINY slide switch in it to enable the blanker or
      turn it off for testing its operation...

      The radio is programmed via the 70-1000 series EPROM Programmer
      and I along with others on the list can program it..

      The radio has scan and priority built in...BUT you need
      to have the push buttons on the front of the head for
      them to work...if you see three small buttons, one is for
      monitor (CTCSS which is OPTIONAL in that model), one for
      SCAN and one for PRIORITY....if you dont see the last two,
      the radio can do it...but you need a new faceplate and the
      buttons OR drill thru and mount small switches there..
      (spst push locking type or toggle)

      Do you still need a 70-485? I have one, but will have to put it together. I

      front mount head. It can be configured to be either way.

      Hi...

      I have the same problem but with another Midland model.

      You might want to search and check the Internet web for a site that has a
      "universal" direct connection synthesizer programmer control head that
      connects direct to the Microprocessor of a radio and that can make the radio
      frequency agile and can also set CTSCC tones, etc. It has a touch pad for
      control and a LED readout panel.

      I have most of this article in HD memory, but it comes from a engineer who
      designed it to work with any radio at any frequency, and is found on the G.E.
      and probably the Motorola Modification sites..

      I want to thank those who repiled to my 1st posting on this subject...
      however, the software I have now that will program the 70-045 will not
      allow entries above 50.0000... since the program is entirely binary, I
      cannot see a way to change the upper limit to 54...has anyone been able
      to do this? I have a couple of 70-045Cs I am wanting to move up to 6mtrs
      for some friends...have programmer and now software but if I cannot get it
      to take a 6mtr freq, then the radios are useless...
      (why did Midland allow 29MHz channels to be programmed and yet no freqs
      above 50Mhz?? Every other Midland I have I can get onto 6 except these..
      seems like a waste to not be able to use them!)

      Many thanks to those who replied to my first request about software
      for the Midland 70-045 (originally posted on some but not all
      of the remailers I am posting this one to)...Dave McKay in GB came up
      with the final solution...the UK version of Midland's software which
      allows the band limits to be changed!! NEAT! Got the software finally to
      take 52MHz freqs and then got to programming...sure enough the radios
      will take the changes BUT the VCOs and other RF ckts now need to be
      retuned from the 48MHz freqs they were on......ALAS, wouldnt you know
      it....I dont have the bloody (sorry Dave!;) service manual...
      if someone has the tuning instructions for the 70-045 series I would
      be MOST appreciative. I have a few HTs to set up for some friends..
      and would like to get them tuned asap....if you have the instructions,
      please send me a stripped down text version in direct email (NOT thru the

      what coil/tuning cap is what on the board, that would help...as none

      If you will go into the archives of this list, one of the first few
      posts is a list of midland model numbers and what they are for.

      I have a 70-1300A printer for my 70-1000 and 70-1080A programmers and
      need printer ribbons. Not available from Midland. Does anyone know
      of ribbons available for a different printer that will work in the
      1300A ? Does anyone know how to use other dot matrix printers on the
      two programmers?

      I have a 1080 and it works fine with any dot matrix DOS compatible printer
      that I have connected it to. You will need to use the cable that comes with
      the programmer of course, since it's kind of unusual on the device end, but
      the printer end works with a standard Centronics printer. Personally, I
      have used Epsons of a couple different models without problems.

      Anyone had any luck on programming 70 cm freq's into these radios? I
      am using the 70-1045 programmer for the 70-245 and the 70-1052 for
      the
      70-266. Neither uses a .chl file like the XTR's do.

      On the 1045, you need an Eprom upgrade to a version that allows
      440 and 450 freqs to be entered...I have a 245BMX sitting here on
      444.15 and some 450 and 455 channels....older versions don't allow
      prgming across 450 boundary....

      The 1052, you need the UK version of the software...it allows you
      to change the band limits (Thats how I got 6mtr freqs into the 045
      HTs....NOW if I can get the VCO modified or somehow working above
      52 Mhz!)

      I can get ya the EPROM copied from my 1045...what version is yours now?
      I will send ya the files directly on the 1052....I also ULed them to
      the radio-programming file area on yahoogroups..and they just changed
      their UK site over...so much for the old Egroups....

        Hello and Greetings from Belfast , Northern Ireland.

        Help !!! I've 10 radios to program before the weekend and I've lost my
        Programming cable. I've a feeling I've left it behind at a site
        somewhere.
        The radios are Midland 70-148BN. The one with the 6-pin connector below
        the PTT button. Can you help ?? I'd be able to make up
        another one if I just had the diagram.

        Any help would be very welcome. The local PMR dealers here in Belfast
        are less than helpful let's say !

        Very many thanks in advance , Brian Barron , Elecronic Servicing (
        Belfast )

        Sorry about the confusion. I thought the attachment was going to show up
        where I put it, not below the Yahoo header.

        I received the e-mail from the fellow looking for the pin out for the cable
        for the 70-148 series portables. These are either newer radios or export
        models that we don't have any information about.

        If you have the pin out either post to the group or send it to him direct.

        Thanks

        I agree and apologize, I had started out putting some midlands I had
        on here, I recieved a great response and I figured that although this
        is a midland channel that there may be intereest in other radios and
        wanted to offer them. I will stick to midlands on this channel and I
        thanks you for info on the radio4sale channel, I hope that does exist
        and I will look into that after this message.

        Jon,

        You received good advice about the XTR.CHL file.  I do know however, that the very early software for the XTR did not use a XTR.CHL file and the information was imbeded in the main file.  If you do not have a XTR.CHL file in your software, you may want to look for a later version.

        I am in need of service manuals for the 70-0500A Low
        Band and 70-3800B VHF High mobiles. Will buy or pay
        for copying.

        Also, how are these programmed? Via PC and rib, or
        stand alone programmer? I need to reprogram them.

        Last question-- Do these have a vehicular repeater as
        a factory option? I have a customer with several of
        these set up that way, and there is a BNC connector on
        the bottom of the T/R unit going to the antenna for
        the repeater. I haven't been able to remove them from
        service to see if this is original or aftermarket, and
        have a few that are not sending not to the portables.

        Any and all information is appreciated.

        the 70-1308 adaptor cable and software on the PC..
        the software is in the FILES area of this list.

        Factory...in fact one of my lowband Syntech IIs has such..
        I dealt with both the original rptr (xtal controlled) and

        In the channel programming area, on the frequency fields, there is a
        3 character field to the right of the frequency and nothing in the
        helps to tell what it is. For example:

        If that were the case, then the frequency entry field would simply have 4
        places to the right of the decimal place vs an EXTRA 3 character field.
        Perhaps you should have looked at the software before offering a (flawed)
        opinion.

        I need to program a 70-0375A mobile. This has a 10 pin
        connector for programming like the Syntech II, but I
        can not read it with any version of software that I
        have. Versions 1.11 through 4.1.

        What software do I need? Also, the radio has a basic,
        non alpha, control head.

        Lastly, can someone provide, or direct me to where I
        can find a list of model numbers to cross reference to
        what series they are. I'm not that familiar with the
        Midland line.....

        i've got a customer with a 70-480 and a 70-2311 "Y"'d off it. the speaker audio is weak when the handset is in the cradle but 'proper' when the handset is removed from the cradle.

        without having looked at the unit, i'm assuming one of the components in the handset is the culprit. might even be a dirty switch...


        i'm wondering about the cost of a new or used handset and whether midland is actively in the LMR business any longer. i can't find any website except the CB radio one.

        Jack, edit the XTR.CHL file.. At about line 28, you should see 8-UHF (l)B,
        The next 2 lines below that line, you'll see the freq. range.. It will be
        4500
        and 4800.. Change the 4500 to 4400, to make 440mhz the new bottom range.

        that is the wrong way to go about it.
        you will load other stuff that you don't want.

        edit the CHL file is the best and safest..

        Does anyone have any info on this radio? or software,
        It looks almost like the Standard HX-580T,which I also have,I hooked
        up the programming cable to the midland,which also is the same,the
        hx580 software reads the midland but wont program it.ANY IDEAS?

        I have a bunch of misc. Midland LMR stuff leftover from my days as a Dealer.

        Scan kits for XTRs, case parts for handhelds, DTMF fronts for handhelds,
        CTCSS/DCS boards for Syntech's, PTT bars for various handhelds (70-165/265,
        70-155), channel switches, volume and squelch parts and so on. I don't have
        an exact inventory, but it's probably around $300 worth of parts for
        everything for 1990 to 1996 series radios.

        The first $80 takes it all...

        I've picked up a second hand Midland radio with no serial number or Model number tag on the back and have no idea what the model number is.  Hoping someone can help me out.
         
        It is a remote head model Midland VHF 66-88 Mhz
         
        The remote head is a dark grey colour with a 32 pin flat cable connector on the back for the connection to the main unit.  It also has a 9 pin plastic connector on the back for the speaker (and I presume options)
        The front of the remote head has a 2 digit LCD display with a red perspex cover a TX/Busy indicator and 4 blue buttons Monitor, P Scan, N Scan, A/D SEL.
        Under the LCD display is the 4 pin microphone connector and 3 turn knobs Pwr/Vol, Squelch and Dn - Up for the channels.
         
        The main transmitter unit has another 9 pin connector on the back for power and an SO-239 for antenna.
        On the front it has a grey handle with Midland written on it and the 32 pin connector for the remote head.
        Underneath is a rubber cover with 10 pins in the radio (I presume for programming).
        It has no slip in/out EPROM board like the older Midlands/RT-85's so I presume it is EEPROM programmable.
         
        Any help would be appreciated.
         
        Brian.

        and 5Mhz sep at full 40watts out...

        Hello Brian, I'm not sure of the model number but it is a Midland "XTR"
        model
        vhf Australian Mid-Band radio. 70-1076? (The Leader 70-1066 was the 8
        Channel
        local only set.) A or B model, depending on band. It programs with the
        "Midland
        LMR SynTech XTR & 8-Channel Mobile Radio Programmer" software
        (Version 2.2 was the last version I received from EXICOM.) and a
        cable from the comport to the 10 pin socket. The cable has a rs232 level

        converter in it, eaither a genuine Midland backshell type or the one
        made by
        EXICOM Australia ,as Midland agents to Australasia, in a black zippy
        box.
        Unfortunately no part numbers as all my manuals are in storage 2,500 klm
        away.
        Someone else will be able to give some more info.
        Regards,

        Thanks heaps for that Sam.  Appears I could be very close to the answer.  I have since put it on the air and it has 1 simplex channel on 80.4600 MHz 25 KHz step of course so it will need to be modified for 12.5 KHz to be of great use.

        Sorry, but I'am a little upset. Get this.. a 50 year old woman in
        oklahoma runs an anwering service. She owns a remote tower. A ham
        club guy called her and asked if he could put a antenna on her tower.
        She had to decline because she is in poor health and her husband has
        brain damage, in which it is very hard for her to do any climbing or
        physical work, (get this,,she supports her family working at least 12
        hours a day 7 days a year). Anyway today she took a break and went
        out to check on her property. What she discovered was the ham guy had
        climbed her tower and took off her antenna at 110' removed it. and
        istallled a omni-derectional antenna. then using her coax, hooked up
        his (or local ham club's) repeater leaving coax and parts around,
        with a total disregard of her property. I have been a ham for 10
        years and have many professional friends who are also. Is this what
        this hobbie is comming to? Running over other's rights? I thought we
        were to help out society.-d

        It is easy to tell a story, I would have to know its true before I put it in
        print and badmouthed other HAMS.

        Was it a MidlandLMR repeater? It may have been a GE and than its on the
        wrong list.

        I have a Midland 70-1632A. I have the 10 pin plug, XTR software
        version 3.1 I built a RS232 to TTL converter with a MAX232 chip
        using the schematic from krasnodar.online.ru

        I have a B.O.B. monitoring the RS232 line. I can not get a response
        from the radio. Do I need to have the radio in a programming mode
        by pushing a sequence of buttons on the control head? Or is there
        something that I'm not seeing?

        Thanks,
        John

        When trying to program, do this sequence:

        Turn radio OFF!!! Plug the 10pin cable from the programmer into the radio
        and then turn the radio back on...the LED readout should say SCI...which
        tells you its in the programming mode...when you are done programming,
        turn OFF the radio 1st!! then unplug the programming cable then power
        back on...

        Other than that, you should not have to do anything else..

        John, what type of Computer are you using? 386 or 486 or Pentium?
        I built the real 1308 cable and couldn't get it to work either.. I was
        using a low version of 3.xx (maybe 3.1) on a 486 and that was the problem.
        3.1 works with a 386 or find 3.23.. That's the level that fixed my problem
        with my 486.. The real 1308 cable has a NOR? chip after the Max232, so
        some lines are inverted and some are re buffered to the radio.. I've never
        heard of that cable you build not working but there differences..

        Hope this helps... Pete N2MCI

        Hi Pete,
        I am using an AMD 1.2 GHz PC Clone. I did find the 3.23 version of
        software but I'm still not getting a response from the radio. From
        your and Steve's responses, it looks like I'll have to find an old
        computer for this. Thanks Guys.

        Chris, thank you too. I'm not getting the SCI on the display. It
        goes to normal operation.

        I have a question about the 70-5300BD desktop UHF repeater. The radio does work BUT once I transmit by any method the TX VCO is then always on and is radiating a signal that can be heard on another radio for blocks (no TX light is on and no power is measured out of the PA). I can't believe that it was meant to do this. TX VCO  voltage on\off does not seem to be controlled by anything. I could use some advice on this one!! Thanks!

        You will need a Midland 70-1000 programmer, which are hard to come by, and usually quite expensive.  Your best bet is to take it to a shop that has one and let them do it.

        --- In MidlandLMR@y..., "ditchdogh6"
        According to information that someone recently posted
        to the radio programming list, the Midland radios were made by
        Unidin..

        They also included a URL to a site with radio mods, which
        included the information on changing a jumper on the inside
        of the trunk mount box, which made it front panel programmable. and
        which the article said also applied to the Midland radios!!

        I downloaded the article because I also have a Midlasnd radio to
        program.. IF I can find it, I'll send it to you.

        I have no idea if it works, for I haven't tried it yet.

        You might also do a www.google.com search and check out the Pony
        Programmer,AKA "PonyProg", a fairly universal programmer of PROMS,
        EPROMS, EEPROMS, etc.. I'm building one for programming a lot of
        different radios and other things...

        If it is the standard Syntech II software, what model number do I

        The only options in the software that I have are:

        70-342x A = 136-160 MHz Low 2.5 KHz 40 DASH
        70-442x B = 148-174 Mhz 40 TRUNK
        70-385x 110 DASH
        70-485x 110 TRUNK

        So I guess 70-342B? Is the 70-3400B a Syntech II or something else?

        I have the Syntech II software that I downloaded from the Yahoo groups site.

        I purchased a midland 70-3400b with a basic control head. i now want
        to change the control head to the deluxe head, but I can't seem to be
        able to change the model number under edit radio ID. I'm trying to
        change from 70--4427B to 70-3422B. Any help is appreciated.
        | 555|554|2002-06-21 20:16:56|Terry Taylor|Re: 70-3422b|
        Try just changing the controll head type. Your change is also trying to
        change it from front mount to rear mount,
        if you have a 70-4427B now, change it to 70-4422B, that changes only the
        control head.

        Hello All......I'm another New Person

        I have recently aquired a Midland 70-480B and did not get the speaker
        wire. There is a connector on the back of the control head for the
        speaker hookup and I was hoping someone could provide me with a
        pinout of this connector.

        Thanks in Adavance

        You can get a matching connector off the shelf from Radio Shack. Just cut off the plastic wings that their connector has. The pins come in the package.

        I am new to the list but need to program an XTR and a Titan down to
        143.900 for the CAP. I was able to get the codes from Midland to do
        it with the XTR and the 70-1080 programmer. Another Dealer told me he
        had the information a long time ago aobut how to do it with a Titan B
        model. He ahs since lost it and Midland does not seem to think it can
        be done. Can anyone help me here?? I am sure it can be done, just
        need to know how.

        I am new to Midlands and to the list. Can anyone tell me what radio I
        have here and what you need to program it? Is it usable on any of the
        Ham bands? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

        Greetings to the list, I am experienced with moto software, but just
        recently came across a stash of Midland VHF Handhelds.....

        I have the following handheld radios:
        70-195-99a (flat brick sized radio with strange "T" shaped speaker-
        mic conncector)

        70-165-16a (round mic connector), but I have a cable that will plug
        it into the test box....

        For programming equipment, I received the 70-1308a interface cable,
        and it plugs into the 70-1056a Syn-tech XTR handheld Test Box

        I am unable to find any software that will communicate with these
        units. The ht's software in the file section is unable to
        communicate with the radios. I have had some software (don't
        remember which, I've tried everything I could find) that would talk
        to the radio, then come back with unknown model number.

        Please help me find the software for these units, I have a pile of
        them, and would like to get them out of my living room.

        Thanks sooooo much,
        Robert, a Midland "newbie"

        You have a wideband VHF 40 watt 80 channel radio, factory specs 148-174
        but will do 144-174. Gotta have a 70-1000 programmer to program the
        eeprom if the prom is with the radio. Prom mounted on a small board
        located on the top of the radio. PL board mounted on the bottom side of
        the radio, 2 screws mounted to the side fram, 1 on a stand off in the
        center of the radio towards the front. Most BXL's had factory installed
        scan on the face plate. Scan is programmed in the same prom.

        Hope that helps you....

        95=model
        99=99 channels
        A= low bandsplit (136-156 MHZ)

        you need either the 70-1080A programmer with the 70-1057A cable
        (stand alone programmer, no PC or software is required) If you don't
        have this...you don't want to know what this costs.

        OR

        70-1022-3.5 PC programing software and interface cable 70-1053A
        the PC software QTY (6) in stock at Midland and they also have the
        cable. List price for the two items is $170.00

        70-165-16a
        1=VHF
        16=16 channels
        A=low band split (135-156 MHz)

        Uses the 70-1052A handheld PC/Radio interface box and 70-1020-3.5 MHP
        software, stereo type plug into the earphone jack.

        70-1308A Interface cable from PC to 70-1053A programming interface kit

        70-1056A Programming Test interface allows programming, RF connection
        by BNC cable, MIC and Speaker audio connections, Monitor and PTT
        controls, and internal/external switching.

        (never used the 1056A just passing info from the old price book)

        I hop this helps somewhat.

          Have a question for someone. Have a 70-665b. I know what I have. Just would
          like to know what interface and cable is needed for programming.
          Want to try to place it into the 440 amateur band.

          You need a 70-1000 programmer, no cable, no interface. The eprom is
          removed from the radio, erased, and reprogrammed.

          Gimme a break Walter...for those of us that have been on the list since
          it started, we know the occupations of the many friends we have found
          here on the list. Dave is in the Canadian Navy and is in the submarine
          service. So if you are new to the list, chill out.

          You have missed many opportunities to voice your "unprofessional"
          comments in the past with very much out of line postings, so you are
          completely out of line to say a jab at a friend is not professional. I
          defer to Rob Lee, the moderator if I was unprofessional, certainly not to
          you.

          I'm quite certain that the many folks that have received my advise or
          iinformation regarding Midland radios certainly do not share your
          isolated opinion.

          Your answers are much appreciated. Can you tell me what software and

          No software....the prom plugs directly into the 70-1000 programmer. There are some versions of the programmer, modified for the talk around options or for the adapters to use in the 526/336 radios, but any 70-1000 will program a 665b radio. It will perform great in the 440 ham bands after a slight retuning.
           
          The 70-1000C version is a 12vdc programmer with an IBM interface, but the prom still plugs into the unit.
           
          The70-1000C is available from PJ O'Brien in Australia pjobrien@...  He's selling them on Ebay or direct for about $350. A 70-1000 recently went for $426 on Ebay, a little too high in my book.
           
          Take the top cover off the radio and towards the front center, you should find a small board plugged into an "L" shaped series of connectors. That is the eprom board. I always copy the current prom and save the data headings, then start the frequency and PL entries on the programmer while the prom is being erased or transferred to a spare blank prom.
           
          No mooching at all, some of us are pleased to help others here, even if we get a negative comment from someone who doesn't realize we are friends here  and have a personal history with the members of the list.

          OK, let's all just take a couple of deep breaths.

          Consider me properly chastised for making my concerns known to the list.
          (Bailiff, whack his pee pee!)

          I am fairly new to the list. Not knowing the dynamic going between the
          "old-timers", my concern was that this sure looked like the opening salvo

          in a flame war. I've seen way too many of those since I started reading
          mail lists back in '95.

          Let me introduce myself.
          Walter Howard

          I am here to soak up anything I can, and provide answers/advice only when

          I know the subject well, and defer to others when I don't.

          Again my apologies, and let's get back to the subject of the list.

          Well said, Walter. After you listed what your background is, you have
          reminded me that we have corresponded in the past many years ago. It was
          my 440 amateur radio repeater in Kingman, AZ that was used by AZDPS to
          coordinate the incoming medical response for the Amtrak train derailment
          during the flash flood that wiped out a bridge. Ranger 33 (retired, now
          Ranger 41) declared an emergency and utilized the UHF repeater as a comm
          channel for the aircraft dispatched for medical evacuation.

          Incoming flights included National Park Service Grand Canyon, Black Hawk
          ships from Nellis AFB, other DPS ships from Phoenix and Flagstaff, and
          private ships from UMC Las Vegas and Flagstaff. Due to the overwhelming
          radio traffic on normal public safety systems, the amateur repeater
          provided clear, local communications for the required coordination by the
          medical officer.

          The repeater has also been used to receive medical instructions via the
          autopatch by the licensed flight crew from Kingman when the UHF med nets
          have failed in remote areas of NWAZ. AZDPS has awarded me certificates
          for the use of my amateur radio repeaters during such times the "normal"
          systems became unusable.

          Your radio experience is very welcome here on the list and as you have
          seen, we are a group of individuals that have made very good friends via
          this list and we do know the personal history and occupations of these
          friends as we have all conducted business together both on and off the
          list. O.K., now that I'm sort of off the subject list, I think my e-mail

          area ham activities relating to my repeaters in the Kingman area.

          Welcome aboard and have fun with Midland LMR radios.

          I am setting up a Syntech II and it has the public address function.
          How is this actuall setup (another board in the radio (nothing

          OK. Picked up a midland vhf mobile at auction and wanted to use it
          in my car. Found the software and i think i found the cable diagram
          70-1336 cable?? I think the programming port is on top of the radio
          covered by a rubber plug.

          question 1 do i have the correct diagram. if so do you need the
          max232 chip and where would i get one from.

          question 2 can this do 2mtrs ham and how can i tell how many channels
          is supports.

          Hi

          I'm looking for information on the Midland 70-165-48B Handheld radio.
          I imagine info on any 70-165 would be helpful. I picked one up that
          seems to be in good shape. It has 4 channels programmed with a fifth
          programmed to weather. Kinda nice.

          Searched the archives and I am finding that it probably needs a
          dedicated programmer 70-1052. Does anyone have a good source for
          this? (expensive?)

          I would like any info such as how it is programmed, where a
          service manual can be obtained. I looks like the Midland handheld
          software found on this site (MIDLANDHT.zip) makes a file that can be
          sent to an EPROM for programming?

          Would I be better off selling it to someone and look for something I
          can program (or make a programmer) easier?

          This is all speculation on my part of course.

          Thanks for any info I receive.

          I have sucessfully programmed a handful of 70-1526B models
          to the local UHF amater Repeater pairs. It all went very
          smoothly, however I am in need of help on what software
          toggle or comand to use to make the radios scan. I note
          there is a option in the software to set each channel to
          group "A" or group "B". This makes me believe they should
          scan two groups. There are a few other programming commands
          I am not sure of, so we just skipped by them, wishing for the
          best. I do not have the programing manual, just the software
          and the cable so I am kind of working "blind"

          Does any one have a recommended list of commands?

          Also: Inside the radio, on the front of the mainboard,
          there is a fourth pushbutton, over on the right hand side.
          On the units I have, this button is not brought out to the
          front panel. It seems to have some function, because when
          in one mode, the radio's would not accept data from the
          laptop, in the "other mode," they would program.

          Is this fourth button for Priority or Scan or ???


          For those thinking about attempting to modify these for
          Amateur UHF, it is real easy. As mentioned in earlier
          posts in this Group, just a modification to the
          programming software was needed. Then a little tweaking
          of the PLL voltage and they locked right in. No real
          improvement was noted when trying to align the receiver...
          everything just worked!

          Nice radios.

          What is a 73-005?????? All Midland LMR products have a 70- prefix
          including accessories for LMR commercial radios. Is this a consumer
          product from Midland? Not sure if this is the right place to get info on
          a non commercial non LMR product. Most of the folks here are all LMR
          orientated. If it is an amateur radio, any mods to take it out of band
          and into business/public safety is not legal.

          Good luck......

          It is NOT type accepted for use on Part 90 LMR freqs.....nor are they

          Turn on PC, Connect cable to PC, Connect cable to radio, make sure
          Com port is setup to correct setting.

          AFTER all above is done turn off radio, turn radio back on (with
          cable connected) then read radio.

          If you turn radio on without programming cable attached, it will give
          you problems.

          Also follow instructions to manually edit EPROM settings as described
          in the files section of this list:
          http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MidlandLMR/files/BANTAM.TXT
          before you send modified changes back to radio or you will get an
          error.

          These are good little radios, I have sold a few recently. (The
          special pricing helped a lot)

          I have a couple of these radios but no way to program them.
          Like to put them on 440 if possible. As I recall (it's been
          several years since they were programmed) that the software would not
          directly allow freqs lower than 450 to be entered.

          Anyone know if this is possible?

          I have put 1526s on 440 with no problem....the 70-1080A will
          put them down into 440 ok...the software on a PC will also do it..
          if the software wont allow 440 entries, you merely modify the Channel
          CFG file which sets the band limits in a text editor....change the
          450 low end to 440 or 420...and now it will allow the entry..
          IF you get the software from the FILES area of this list on Yahoo,
          it is already set to allow XTRs to go into the ham bands already..

          Real easy...never heard of a lowband XTR rptr though...This must be two
          mobiles lashed together?? The Midland BaseTech rptrs were more than
          that!..

          Anyway to make a Midland XTR (or Syntech II) go to 6 OR 10m, you have
          to change some programming in the 70-1080 handheld programmer.
          (The A range radios cover 30-36 and the C are 42-50....and no the
          CWB wideband will not cover 10 AND 6 together....only radio I know
          that does that is the Mot Syntor9000X...but I digress)

          The software for the 70-1308 interface with mods to cover 10 and 6
          are on the files area here on Yahoo....to change the 70-1080 prgmr
          you merely access the MANUAL feature and then go to certain HEX
          addresses, change the digits there which default the band limits
          then program as usual (without clearing or resetting which causes

          To all:

          Thanks for being patient. Prices for key midland items in warehouse
          1 are now on WEB at:
          http://www.simrex.com/midland_excess_inventory%20MAIN%20.htm

          Read the antenna pricing strategy. You won't beat this anywhere.

          Mobiles were not priced but $100 is a good starting point.

          Terms are credit card or Paypal. You have 5 days from when you
          receive item to return it for refund/credit. Buyer pays shipping in
          case of refund.

          $4 handling fee per shipment. Shipping is charged at our cost for
          UPS.

          If you want to make a bulk offer on any item, please contact me.
          Unpriced items, make an offer. We can ship by pallet.

          No programming capability yet but we are working on it. There will
          be a nominal charge for this.

          Does anyone know if there is a new version of the Titan Programming
          Software? We bought it for our agency about a year to a year and a
          half ago and programmed stuff and it worked fine. Our vendor had
          reprogrammed some stuff this week, and it was incorrect so we tried
          to change it with our software and it wont even let us read the
          radio. All it gives us is error code 8. Any ideas out there?

          It happened again because the ID being subscribed has full access
          to the list upon subscribing...a lot of the Yahoo groups have gone
          to moderating new members until they post a couple of msgs...then
          they get full access (most of my Yahoogroups I run are set that way)
          Thats the only way to beat the spammers...ALSO while such people are
          subbed to the list, they also get any msgs sent and can probably
          harvest the addresses off that...(One thing I like about QTH.net

          Warehouse one is readily accessible.  Warehouse 2 is in Canada and I will check it out On sept. 24.  
           
          Warehouse 1 stuff is moving briskly daily. There is  lots of interest in the antennas since they are priced at just over the dealer cost for the mast clamps in some cases.

          Hi

          I have come by a number of these hand held radios and am having some
          trouble finding information on a programming cable.. I have the
          software already so its all good..

          I have heard mention of a 1725 or something programming interface.
          Is this really required or will a simple 232 to ttl converter do the
          trick..??

          Thanks in advance...

          | 648|647|2002-09-27 14:43:53|cboone@earthlink.net|Re: Titan|
          I have never dealt with a Titan...all my experience with Midlands
          stopped with the ST II and XTRs....how does the Titan program? PC
          or handheld programmer? The trick to get the SII and XTRs to 6mtr
          using the 1080A HH prgmer is to change some hex addresses manually
          that set the upper limit to 50.00MHz...and just change that to 54.0MHz
          BUT I have never looked at the prgming on the Titan (the PC software
          is easier to do on the STII and XTRs...its just a change in the
          CHL file..) I bet something similar is done with the Titans.

          BTW STII and XTRs DO need to be retuned when set to 6mtr...the front
          end and VCOs do not go that high without retuning...of course they
          still have 8MHz b/w but just moved up from 42 to 46 MHz on the low
          side...

          To answer the question. that radio WILL NOT go out of band.
          It's not like the XRT that you could edit the CHL file.

          The 70-045 is a Handheld...not a mobile as the 055 is...It uses a

          and have the pinouts as to whitch wire does what for that, but I need

          anyone have any exepereince with this. I know the Missouri State
          Highway Patrol does a setup similar to this with SynTec II's...
          Thanks in advance.

          Does anyone know if theres any where on the net or if you have a

          figure the scan out!
          | 657|656|2002-10-05 16:37:09|John Becker|Re: Heres a dumb req. Users manual for a xtr|
          what model?

          | 658|656|2002-10-05 18:18:57|cboone@earthlink.net|Re: Heres a dumb req. Users manual for a xtr|
          If it says SCAN on an XTR, probably is a priority scan...the
          channel you have selected BEFORE pressing SCAN to turn it ON is
          the priority channel....while scanning, the PRI channel will be
          scanned every 4 to 8 channels (this is set when the radio is
          programmed!). If the PRI channel becomes active while the scanner
          is running OR is stopped on another channel, it will go TO the PRI
          channel...also depending on how the radio is programmed, USUALLY
          the radio TRANSMITS on the PRI channel when PTT is pushed when in
          the SCAN mode...

          NOW if there is a PRI button as well, then the SCAN button is merely
          a scan button...NO pri monitoring on it..for that to happen, both
          buttons have to be pressed and the features activated...

          WHAT model do you have?? I can scan a user manual in for LB,VHF HI
          or UHF model XTRs and send it your way.

          This is August, W8MIA with a question please. I am new to Midland
          equipment. I always have been a GE man using Phoenix, Delta & Rangr
          units. I have a chance to pick up several Midland 70-340B's VHF
          complete mobile units but have been told by the seller that the police
          agency they came from had removed their frequencies from the rigs.
          With the Phoenix and Delta units he has told me they pulled out the
          EEPROM's.

          Since I am not up to date with Midland equipment my question is this.
          Is there an EEPROM in the model 70-340B they can just remove or would
          the radio most likely all be there with just the EPROM or ?? erased??

          While talking about programming can you please tell me what is
          required to program these radios? Is there a s/w package available, a
          program cable or RIB required, etc.??? Please educate me please and
          thank you.

          EPROM module...(plug in board with EPROM on it)..
          Without, you're toast....thats STUPID if they throw that away..
          all they have to do is put it under a UV light to erase the thing!

          Programing them takes a 70-1000A or C programmer...The C uses PC and

          can do the EPROMS for ya...tuning is not hard on them.

           August, that is the way they do things.   Some where there are hundreds of the circuit boards out there.  If someone finds them let me know as I could use a few dozen.

          Does anyone know where I can buy replacement batteries for a 70-045
          handheld? Have tried JBro (Alexander/Lexstar) and WW with no luck.

          Herman, this is so funny (in a sad way) I had that very same thought!
          The radios and the boards are worthless without each other??? What
          really hurts is to think the boards were just scrapped!

          Many years ago I worked for a communications console mfg. company and we
          would use GE repeaters and other GE radio gear because Mot was our
          biggest competitor in consoles. I got to know the folks at Lynchburg
          rather well and as a Ham Radio type I wanted to know what they did with
          the then OLD radio equipment, mostly GE Progress line Mobiles and
          Repeaters, at that time. When they told me I almost cried.

          They had a hugh field at their lynchburg facility and they would dump
          them out there and drive over them with a big Cat to crush them so they
          wouldn't hit the used market and hurt new sales!!! Doesn't that hurt a
          little???

          You can try Alexander Mfg. Co. located in Mason City , IA. Also
          consider opening up the case and replacing the cells yourself using NiMH
          cells and you will end up with a better battery. They now have "AA" NiMH
          cells at 1800 ma which is 3 times the old NiCad's! I have rebuilt all of
          my own batteries for the last several years. They work better and cost
          about 1/3 to one 1/2 the cost of a new lesser battery!

          Alexander and JBro have combined to form Lexstar.  Hve found out that the 70-B36 is a high capacity pack for the same radio and it is still available.

          IF I recall, the 266 uses the same 1052 programmer as the 045s
          and 166 models.....I'll double check to see...if so, I can program
          them.

          That uses 70-1052 programmer. Most Midland Dealers should have the
          capability to program it. I am a Midland dealer and can program it
          for you. BUT I believe the B version only goes down to 450 MHz. I
          don't think the software will allow you to program 440 MHz freq's in.

          A 70-1052A programmer can.....the software is what needs to be changed
          and I found the UK version of software allows out of band mods...
          I have the UK software and can put 420-450 freqs in a UHF radio..
          also can put 10 and 6mtr freqs in the lowband versions though the
          70-045Cs do NOT go high enough in the VCOs (they stop at 52.500! RATS!)
          If anyone needs programming to be done, contact me direct OFF list

          I have been trying to program a Titan to go down to 144. I was told by another dealer that there was a paper out at one time that told how to do it, but it was translated Japanese and hard to follow. If there is a UK version of software for the other radios, is there one for the titans that will allow this??

           

          Can anyone help me out.

          Ahhhhh, the venerable Syntech series. I've been using one as a half-duplex
          link radio on an IRLP node for some time now - solid all the way. All this
          time, I've been driving the xmt audio from a soundcard of a computer with
          excellent results (sounds quite good actually).

          Now the rub....

          As an old Midland dealer back in the 80's and 90's, one thing I remember
          about these radios (440B included) is they required a fairly high level of
          xmt audio drive - the Midland mic having a preamp in them. No problem up to
          this point, as the soundcard was designed to drive a faily low impedance
          and delivers more than enough voltage to drive the Midland. Except I'm
          working on an audio mixer and want to drive the 630 with an op amp. And I'm
          running into all sorts of freq. response and distortion issues. Obviously I
          have an impedance issue here..

          So my question is twofold..

          1) Not having my service manuals for the radio anymore, anyone know the
          impedance of the mic input? I assumed 600 ohms or so, but apparently not.
          And yes I know about the voltage on the mic 'hot' line, used to drive the
          preamp in the mic.

          2) Is there a better place to drive the modulator in the rig?

          Ken

          I opened my 70-1052 programmer up...and promptly shut it...
          it has its own Motorola uP chip in it....No, you cannot clone it
          as far as I know....

          NOW, that chip is probably used for primarily CLONING radios..
          but writing and reading to the radios uses a MAX232 IC..
          usual one for RS 232 to TTL logic conversion...

          I will attempt to dig up a service manual or schematic on the
          1052 but I sure aint trying to reverse engineer this one :)

          (RATS!)

          Hi Chris & others interested,


          Not too sure if the 70-1052 is the same unit as the 70-1052A that is used
          for
          programming 70-265 / 70-165 etc. portable radios, however I recall the
          70-1052A having it's own Microprocessor too. I also think this is to allow
          the
          programming unit to clone radios without the need for a PC to be connected,
          as you have suggested.

          Had a brief look at a 1052A several years ago. As I recall, the data sent
          from the PC to the radio seemed to go via a MAX232 to the MPU in the
          programmer before it gets to the radio. I guess if the MPU is not changing
          any of the data in the process It may be possible to build a simple
          programmer around the MAX232. If the MPU does alter the data I expect it
          would be difficult to reproduce the programmer without the dedicated MPU.

          Chris, could you please advise where the data is stored in the radio as I
          don't have the service manual? Possibly there could be an external eeprom
          connected to the MPU or maybe the MPU has an internal eeprom. I've been able
          to reprogram some early kenwood radios by reading the external eeprom and
          manually editing the data, so that could be a possibility.

          If the radio's MPU has internal eeprom the manufacturer of this MPU may have
          information regarding the programming process.

          Regards

          John

          I have a radio marked 70-165-48B that has a display and keypad.

          I finally found a 70-1052 programmer and purchased it along with the
          Version 2.15 software. I am reasonably sure the programmer has been
          updated to a 70-1052A because it runs the v2.15 software. The radio
          programmed up ok including some ham frequencies one needed a PL of
          100. FYI: The software does not like fast PC's.

          The radio does not send the CTCSS tone out. The CTCSS unit is
          installed. Looking at the schematic I see a smc switching diode
          common cathode set QC25 which interfaces with the CPU and the CTCSS
          unit. WELL THE QC25 WAS MISSING!! I found 2 part numbers for it
          DAN212K and 1SS184. Found the 1SS184 at Digikey and installed it.

          NOW TO MY REAL PROBLEM!

          Now the darn thing gives me an error code "Err-8" which according to
          the service manual says the radio is programmed with the wrong model
          number. So far every model I try has problems. 70-165D-48B the A
          models etc...

          When I downlaod any radio model number so far I get an "Err-3" which
          says I am sending the wrong model number to the EEPROM.

          If I pull QC25 out I can once again program but no CTCSS.

          Anyone have suggestions for me?

          I bought the radio on Ebay and think maybe someone had pieced
          together a radio with odd parts of different models. i.e.
          adding a display to a non display radio so now the software is
          confused?

          Any help would be appreciated.

          It is on the main board...look next to the power relay inside..
          the fuse is in a SMALL, long black housing...you have to check it with
          an Ohmmeter....you cannot visually see the fuse itself...

          (NOTE: On XTR and Syntech IIs, NEVER unplug or plug in the control
          cable with the power applied AND the control head turned on...it
          blows the fuse inside the radio 99% of the time! Thats why Midland
          put the Orange flag on the control cables in later production runs
          to warn installers about that...but that flag with the warning gets
          torn off eventually)

          Here is a follow up on this problem.

          Dave

          Thanks for the info sheet on the 70-2711 CTCSS unit. Unfortunately
          mine was installed correctly and still did not program up.

          BUT fortunately I did receive in the mail today a new 70-2711 CTCSS
          kit from Frank at Simrex. They have lots of parts. If you need
          anything Check them out at www.simrex.com

          I installed the new 2711 and it still didn't work. I then removed
          the diode required to tell the radio it has the CTCSS unit, and
          installed the diode that came with the 70-2711 kit. Still wouldn't
          program.

          I then removed QC25 (which I installed because I incorrectly thought
          it was needed.) Caused myself an additional problem by installing
          QC25. Those SMC parts are a pain to work with!

          The radio now program's up with no problems, and the CTCSS unit works.

          All along my CTCSS unit was bad. The new one took care of the
          problem.

          Thanks again

          Hi All,

          I have a Midland 70-148B VHF handheld that I would like to program
          onto the ham band. So far, I have been unsuccessful getting any

          the ptt. - perhaps similar to another model.

          I am looking for the PC programming software and/or a cable schematic.

          Hello everyone. I just joined this group seeking information about
          some of the radio we use in our FD. I have just taken over as
          the "Radio Officer" and I am trying to see what we have. It was left
          in shambles after the last person that was in charge. Anyway, I am
          looking for information on how to program these radios, how many
          channels they can have, and hopefully pinouts of the connectors on
          them. The two midland radios we have are:

          70-0520C Low band with a built-in repeater. It has the little remote
          head.

          70-530-B UHF. This is whole unit, no remote head or anything.

          Any information you can provide would be GREAT!! Thanks!

          You will need the following:
          70-530B UHF is a Syntech series radio. You will need the 70-1000
          Eprom programmer. Unless you already have this programmer send it to
          a Midland dealer.

          70-0520C I believe this is a 42-50MHz Syntech II series radio.

          You will need the 70-1080 programmer and appropriate cable
          OR
          the 70-1308 programming PC cable and the 70-1488 PC software.

          as well...

          If yours has the crossband rptr built in, the rptr side uses the
          70-1045 handheld programmer...which band is the rptr side on? UHF
          or V High?? I used to maintain a fleet of 70-0520Cs (about 200+ of
          them) with the rptr option at a former job...in fact I still have
          two of the mobiles (one is currently on 6m ham!). We had to use some
          special coding for use with the control head...(we had just a RPT
          button and SCAN button on the small heads)...

          Hi all. I am in need of the pinout for a Syntech II accesory plug,
          the one that's on the back of the radio next to the power connector.
          Or if anyone has the plug they want to sell, let me know. Someone
          was supposed to get the info for me, but I may get old and die before
          he remembers to send it to me. I think he has "Oldtimers". Thanks
          for any help. Please e-mail it to me...hinkeydo@....

          If you could send me that pin-out, that would be great! Is the 70-
          1308 easy to make myself with an RS232 plug and an adaptor for the
          radio's connector? I found the software. Dang, not exactly user
          friendly but it works. The control head we have is rather small. It
          has the volume, squelch, and channel knobs. Then there is a column
          of buttons for monitor, scan, and priority. Then there is a repeater
          button. There is a 2 didgit LCD display. Which control head is this
          for the software??

          The cross-band repeater is VHF High Band. Is that software
          programable as well or is it stand-alone?

          I resently picked up a couple 70-5300B's and wanted to put them on
          the Ham Band.. The RSS I thought would work, Version 4.0, wouldn't
          talk to either radio. Just a couple sets of triple beeps during the
          read..The version of RSS from the files section here, Version 1.11,
          worked fine.. Thanks Chris.. Are there different vintages of Syntech
          II's? I was able to hack the Ver. 1.11 exe file to allow me to
          program
          in below 450mhz but the earlier Version of RSS is harder to open the
          input freq. range and guess I'll have to live with it for now..

          After a minor tweak of the VCO & Frontend, it looks like a great

          Yes they are, even though finding the 12.5 khz narrowband kits for them may now be difficult, also a stepping kit needs to go in as well i think.

          Stupid me, I did it this time... While moving some electronic stuff in my
          truck, I started to smell the wonderful, familiar smell of crisp
          electronics, at which point I looked down and realized my VHF Syntech II was
          not lit up, and that I had forgotten to turn it off before I started moving
          stuff. The smell was coming from that radio :(. I hooked it up to
          another Syntech II Power Cord, thinking (hoping) I had blown the power cord
          fuse. No luck. I opened up the radio looking for any black marks, nothing
          found. Also was looking to see if there was any small internal glass type
          fuse (I had seen these in other radios before) but no luck. Any ideas, as
          I'm already kicking myself for this one, while franticly trying to find
          another VHF Mobile to get in my truck (either by begging, borrowing, or
          appropriating ;). Any ideas on where to check next on this radio? Any
          help would be appreciated! Thanks!

          There isn't much that can go wrong if all the leads (antenna

          chassis of the radio touches a non-fused hot lead. In
          this case, you've smoked a bunch of ground traces within
          the radio.

          Explain what you were doing at the moment before the

          Just adding to Sam's reply, he is correct. They can do 12.5.

          If you install the 12.5 narrow band filter, the whole radio is now
          narrow band. It is not selectable by channel. Meaning you can't have
          one channel 25 khz and the next 12.5.

          I didn't see a 12.5 filter kit listed in the manual.
          Didn't look through all the addendums. Doesn't mean there isn't one.
          You can probably get it from your preferred crystal filter
          manufacturer.

          70-2136 is listed as 5KHz Channel spacing kit

          Don't know if these are still available or not.

          then.....the current draw was not the much in rcv to cause any damage..

          But as long as you didnt reverse polarity the radio, NOTHING

          out??? There is NO way you could have damaged the STII unless something

          To make the radio xmit on narrow band, you have to reduce the
          deviation BUT the bandwidth and audio characteristics of NB may NOT
          be met by such an older radio (I havent seen the specs on the new rules
          but I suspect they have tightened the audio response and bandwidth..
          to make the radios play better at NB...the 530 may NOT be able to
          do it legally)...to make the rcvr NB will take the NB filters...
          IF you can find them...the radio is 15+ years old or so....the parts
          for it are not that easy to find anymore...and making it legal for
          NB may not be possible.....depending on the actual rules.

          Nothing that I know of... Unless a positive lead from something else
          (light box, etc.) came loose and hit the frame of the radio, but I have
          checked all the wires on the box and the rest of my equipment, found nothing
          out of place.... The power leads were plugged into the radio at the
          time... I may go try to check that lead to make sure it is ok, and then
          plug in my lowband radio there. I tried plugging the lowband power lead
          into this highband radio, but wouldnt power up there either. I know I've
          down something stupid, just trying to figure it out so I dont do it again.
          lol BTW, It sucks being stuck with only highband in my portable and
          going on stuff out in the boonies of the county... Just another reason to
          kick myself... lol

          If the radio chassis became +12-volts from an external high-current source, then it is very possible you may have burned open the GROUND connection from the plastic Molex power connector to the chassis ground point.  Look at the end of the Molex power connector and see if it is blackened, or the pins look to be overheated.  If so, remove the Molex connector from the rear of the radio and inspect the wiring behind the connector, it's probably burnt into.
           
          Something similar to this happened to me as a result of having the radio laying on the carpet under the seat. It was not bolted down, and the only path to ground was through the Black power lead.  I was using a mag-mount antenna that did not provide a DC ground.  When a HOT wire came in contact with the radio chassis, it burned the internal grounded jumper in the Molex power connector.

          Do you know the part number of charger need by the70- b48? 
           
          Does the b48 battery allow charging through a connector on the battery (like on the b37) as well as the standard drop-in method?
           
          Do not assume that the charger is 70-c48 (unless you have documentation to the contrary) as many other Midland battery's are charged by a non related part numbered charger.   I am not an expert on Midland, but I am surprised that the battery part number for  the 148 is related to the radio PN. 
           
          There are several midlalnd charger types  listed at:
           
           
          Check both warehouses. 
           
          Also note that it is likely that if you want to invest some effort in modifying the drop in cups for the listed chargers, you will likely be able to charge the battery's.  You will need to check the voltage of your battery and the mAh capacity of your battery to be certain.

          Have not seen that one for an error code, but all mine come up on 00(that's
          where I put my repeaters). Didn't see it in the book.

          Disregard last message, you get a "00" if you plug the 8 pin cables in the
          wrong sockets.

          I swapped them back and everything is fine.

          Now for a little egg nog.

          I hope to get back finishing up programming my 5300B after the holidays,

          but I have some questions before I did the setup.. Can I select more
          than
          1 group at a time.. ie Group 1 HAm Group 2 fire and select both groups
          to listen to both or do I need to create a 3rd group to do both..

          I found a better Escustion locally but the front panel names don't line
          up with the old keys.. The Old Front panel display is in pretty bad
          shape, so the local Midland guy here told me I can order a new front
          panel display for a buck or 2 .. He's not going to be ordering anytime
          soon plus I need to find the correct PN.. Does anyone know if I can
          order directly from Midland or does it have to be a dealer? And does
          anyone have the parts list for the deluxe front panel? I only have a
          book on the radio only (Part 3)..

          Thanks and Happy Holidays, Pete N2MCI

          Well I don't know about US FCC regs currently, but they did comply!
          Well they comply with Australian DOC regs, we converted hundreds of VHF
          lo-band (30-55 mhz), mid-band (60-85 mhz), hi-band (136-174 mhz) and UHF
          Sybtech I's when the new 12.5 khz rules came in a few years ago.
          The full narrowband modification was as per MIDLAND kits and parts
          which allowed the units to come up to the US FCC specs. These radios
          have been sold all round the world in various countries and have been
          operating as narrowband radios since the radio's first came out in I
          think '84 here in Australia. We stopped importing the old model SYNTECH
          I's in about '91 I think.
          I still use a VHF 70-340B 12.5 khz unit and a UHF 70-530B 12.5 khz
          unit (The UHF as a storm back up unit for my Tait 2020.) and there are
          lots still out there.
          So if you can get the kits the radio's will work BUT as Chris says, may
          not comply with the new rules.

          Regards,
          Sam

          I have used a floppy drive cable. I think you would
          need to flip one of the connector ends around.
          Someone with a cable could tell you if one needs to be
          flipped. I don't have a midland any more so I can't
          say for sure.

            The part numbers are as follows:

            6-foot flat cable is 70-0022, the 13-foot is 70-0024, and the 19-foot is a 70-0026.  These are the part numbers for the flat cables.  The list prices as of my last price pages are $77, $85, and $94 respectively.  If you are a dealer or self-serviceing end user, there is usually a discount.

            I bought a short 6 ft cable for testing in the shop from a computer
            catalog. It is A DSUB 37 pin cable, It was about $10.00. A lot
            cheaper than getting one from Midland. However not long enough for

            collection of Midland 70-1562B UHF mobiles we're going to use for our
            Fire Department and Explorer Post and need help with some
            programming. First, are these units PC programmable or do they need
            some sort of eeprom burner or even crystals. Im familiar with
            Motorola stuff, and the Midlands are nice for what we're using them
            for and would really like to use them. Is there a simple cable to
            build and any software that may go with this unit? Thanks in advance
            for any help on this matter.

            hopeing these would be as easy..guess not.

            The 055Cs can be easily put on 6....the VCOs and front ends will
            need to be retuned for peak performance on say 52.525 and that will
            cover the entire 51-54 Mhz range. I can program the EPROMs if you need
            it done..with the 055C you can put all of the 1.7Mhz splits in them
            (tight but they fit) but no room for the 1Mhz splits...I have a STII
            that does that nicely (320 vs 80 channels of course helps!)

            Keep looking on Ebay...the 70-1000Cs show up from time to time (even
            a 70-1000A!!) which do the job (the Cs use a PC, the A is standalone)

            They are xtl controlled 2 W.  An outfit in Canada has xtls' for $11 per unit in small qty and $8 in volume.  Let me know if you need more info.
             
            A version is  136-148 MHz
            B is 148- 162 Mhz
             
            I am guessing C is 162 to 174
             
            I have new drop in 2bay chargers  for these (rapid and trickle mode) as well as lots of stock of the A and B versions of the radio (for less $ that the cost of a new battery) with battery..

            They MAY....I have programmed 248s down below 440 below..you will
            need a 70-1045 HandHeld programmer to do it with the correct firmware
            (I think V3 or higher)..The 70-1080 is needed for the mobile OR the PC
            software and correct interface to the PC (70-1308). On the 1045,
            one band select gives you 406-512 MHz so you can input anything the
            radio can tune to (but the radio itself will only cover a 20MHz range
            without retuning)..of course you will have to retune the rcvr and xmtr
            stages and the VCO after programming.
            Now this is assuming the front end and VCOs will tune to 430...I
            have never tried that with the B range models...they may quit around
            438 or lower..

            Anyone run across this before?? I MAY have the voltage higher than

            could THAT be making a difference? I tried a 045C high range model

            Its the UK version which allows you to change the band limits

            A key question is: Do you retain sensitivity in the intended band that the radios was designed for... or are you down to 2-3uV no matter what frequency  the radio is now programmed for? 
             
            We build some of the narrowest preselectors on the planet  in to our data radios.. and I guess you can say we have seen this before...

            Frank, I havent checked the radio on a 30.000 MHz freq...but
            considering the freqs I have it on now are at the lowest 29.4
            and the highest 29.7, the radio SHOULD be able to go there..
            the C range model does cover up to 2 MHz above 50 MHz....
            but the VCO quits around 52.5 MHz :( so I could not use
            them on 6mtr ham....but the A range SHOULD go down to 29MHz
            with no problem (I have yet to see a rcvr that works at 30MHz
            NOT work at 29.4 Mhz!)

            Sure enough, as I suspected...high voltage which caused the sens to
            go DOWN!! I put a 7.2V battery on it and viola!! back to 0.2uV sens!
            NOW if I can fix the antenna (anyone have a lowband A range Midland
            duckie for a 045A????)

            Hi all, finally my turn to ask for something.

            Looking for documents/manuals for the following repeater package:

            71-7900 Control Panel
            71-5051B Transmitter
            71-5052B Receiver

            I do have the interconnecting ribbon cables between the controller and
            transmitter/receiver. I also have a ribbon cable that appears to go to a
            higher power PA from the controller (no PA) as well as another cable that
            appears to possibly go to an outboard PL panel as it is marked "CSI" on
            the back of the controller.

            Looking for tuning instructions, controller info, etc.There appears to be
            no PL circuit in the controller or radios. The control panel is in a 19"
            rack mount as are the two radios mounted side by side. Radios are crystal
            controlled, high stability holder.

            These came out after my Midland dealer days.

            Please contact me direct at ki7ax@... Will pay for a copy of
            service manual or pertinent documents.Can pay via Pay Pal for the copy
            service and postage.

            The B range is 150-174 BUT usually they will go down to 144 MHz with

            Don't forget that the 341/441 series was the first attempt to wideband a
            VHF radio from Midland. It does not use the normal "15b" heading as most
            widebands do. It uses the old "150" non wideband heading. Got burned a
            couple of times with the old "90" readout after forgetting the proper
            heading.

            this file is a 70-1309...meant to be used on the Bantam series...
            the 1308 has a different cable connection though the circuitry is
            the same (the actual 1308 schematic calls for a Mot MC145070W
            instead of the MAX232 but looking at the chips, I think they are
            the same)...I'll upload a jpg file of the 1308...BTW the radio
            connector on the 1308 is a 10 pin header plug used on PC MBs!
            You just use 8 of the 10 connections..

            | 805|804|2003-03-16 17:55:00|ki7ax@juno.com|Re: z-273 Prom board|
            Michael-

            Unfortunately, you are in the same boat as many of us are regarding the
            273 proms. Lately, most governmental agencies are removing the proms
            prior to surplus auctions, rather than just erasing them. Oregon and
            California definitely remove them but I've seen some from the Midwest on
            Ebay where they have only been erased.

            I'm shy about 10 proms at this minute, but there is hope on the horizon
            for you. Start looking at local swap meets and on-line auctions for
            Midlands that do not work, require some repairs, or are missing
            accessories. I have been able to find at the local ham/computer swap
            meets trunk mount Midlands without any accessories for less than $20 ea,
            then I strip out the prom and PL board before tossing the carcass in the
            trash. With this practice, I have been able to obtain almost 12 proms and
            spare PL boards for much less than the price of a solo Z273 prom offered
            on Ebay.

            Don't be distressed if you can not immediately find a prom. It has taken
            about 3-4 months of visiting the swaps to get the 12 proms I have found.
            I got behind when I purchased 16 high power UHF Midlands formerly used in
            a Florida school district. The Ebay seller said "worked when removed
            from service" and when received, all were missing proms. The seller plead
            "innocent", sold as is and wasn't aware of the requirement of an internal
            prom. The e-mail stopped when I continued to press the seller to go after
            the school district and try to find the proms.

            So even though sources for the proms are limited, with a little careful
            looking at swaps and on-line auctions, you should be able to find the
            single prom you are seeking.

            I got several Midland 340B's from a guy on Ebay awhile back. The came
            without EPROM boards, but had stickers on them indicating they had been
            owned by the forestry dept. in Oregon. I contacted the forestry dept.s
            radio shop and explained to them what I had. After verifying that I was a
            legitimate licensed radio tech, they sent me the proms, mounting brackets,
            and power cords for the radios I had.

            It might be worth checking with the orignial owner on surplus stuff.

            I am looking for the following accessories for a Midland 70-045A-16
            (30-36Mhz range);

            Belt clip (that screws onto the back..NOT the holster..I have those
            already)..

            Flexible duck antenna (I think its the 70-45A model ?)...tunable for
            29-36 Mhz..I may also consider the extendable whip model..

            DTMF front panel for it (16button but no LCD readout, etc..this is
            a 16 channel model)

            AND would be interested in a 48 channel model (70-045A-48) if anyone
            has one.

            Have three 70-045C 42-50Mhz range talkies for trade or sell....
            (this is personal, NOT a business...I dont do Visa/MC)

            I just sent Bill an edited version of the CHL file for V4..
            its easy to edit with a text editor (I used Wordpad) and you can
            easily set the limits...I will try to UL V4 of the Midland pgm software
            to the files area later on.

            Hi,

            I'm looking for the programming cable & software for the above radios.

            Am willing to pay reasonable prices, hoping to source in Australia but
            willing to buy from US.

            I've come across _some_ software on the net, but not sure of the
            terminology. For example, is the 70-1630 known as an XTR? or other
            designation?

            Pleae contact me off list if you are a source, or know of a source for
            the above cable & software.

            Regards,

            Mal Alexander.

            Hi,

            apparently the 70-248 portable can be cloned from another 248, does
            anyone have info on the procedure & cable needed?

            Regards,

            Mal Alexander
            | 817|815|2003-04-09 06:01:16|Chris Boone|Re: 70-1630B and 70-248B|
            The 1630 is a XTR mobile...30watts and depending on the range letter,
            can be 406-450, 430-470, 470-500 and 490-520...A,B,C or D respectively.
            You need the XTR software (which I have and I think I posted on the
            FILES area of this list) and the 70-1308 interface...OR you can homebrew
            one...there are two files on the FILES area of this list @ yahoo that
            have the schematics...the 10pin plug is common in PC interconnect
            internal cabling.

            BTW on your other question about the 248 being cloned, yes, it takes
            a special cable that plugs in between the two radios...then you turn
            on one of them (I think the source radio 1st) then the other and
            it auto downloads into the EEPROM of the destination radio..then
            turn both off, unplug and you're set!...I can get the exact details
            as I have the service manual on the 70-248BMX series and I believe
            it also has the info on the cloning cable in there..(the PLUG on
            it is a PAIN to find!)

            Attachments :
              Hello Jim, sorry to disapoint you but unless someone is willing to part
              with one or you locate one the 70-266-16B ( UHF 16 channel, Mid-Band
              450-490 mhz (B model) ) needs a 70-1052A Interface box. The cable from
              the box to the radio is simply a 3.5mm (1/4") stereo plug to stereo plug
              that plugs into the socket in the 70-1052A and the other end into the
              Earphone socket on the top of the tranceiver.
              The problem is the 1052A box, it is the later version after the
              70-1052 which first came out for the 70-165/265 handhelds. This
              interface box contains a masked Microchip that handles the prgraming of
              the radio. The data is downloaded from the program and then the micro
              undertakes the updating of the databases inside the tranceiver. It also
              needs to be used for cloning to be done, connect master radio-turn on
              radio-select clone button (no need for computer to be connected.)-press
              start button. Interface reads master radio-radio double beeps when
              finished-connect slave radio in place of master-turn on slave radio-
              press start button-radio double beeps on completion. Radios with LCD
              displays display "StArt" then "run" then "End" on completion of
              programming / cloneing job.

              People may correct me if I'm wrong as all this is from memory, I haven't
              needed to program one for a while and cant find my programmer to verify
              operation (Must clean out my workshop shortly! :-) ). The 70-1052 will
              only do the 70-165 AorB / 265 A/Bor C radios 16/48/99 channel versions,
              you need the 70-1052A to do the 70-045(30-50mhz)/065(66-88mhz)/166/266
              16/48/99 channel radios. Nor can you convert a 1052 to a 1052A as it
              uses a different SMD micro.

              Regards,
              Sam Point

              Too bad you're in Australia, Sam. I'd love to send a few to someone for programming in trade for one or two. But I'm in Oregon USA and I wanted to send one with my Son in a couple of weeks. Sigh.

              I have a 70-1530 XTR that only puts out 15 watts TX power. Should be
              30. I have good reason to believe the TX power was turned down in
              the radio's previous life and that the radio itself is not defective.

              The service manual indicates that the TX power is programmable in the
              RSS. I can find in the RSS where to set the power for each channel
              to "Low" or "Normal" but not where to set the "Normal" power level.
              Is there a hardware adjustment that should be used instead like in
              the 70-530?

              Any help appreciated.

              From memory you need to use the Field Technicians "Dongle" that plugs
              into the programming port. This allows you to set High power, Low Power,
              deviation etc.
              Regards,
              Sam

              The XTR power level is set with the 70-1080(A) programmer
              or software on a PC using the "manual" test mode...
              Do you have a programmer? There is no h/w pot to set..(at all
              in the XTRs! All levels including dev, freq adj, etc are set with the programmer)

              Hello, everyone, I am starting to build a site where all models of
              Midland service/operating manuals will be available to all.
              Hopefully, all radio mods, and parts/accys will be listed, as well.
              So far I have the manuals for 70-1000, 70-1050, 70-1055 (the
              programmers,and all programming adaptors too), 70-155a/b, and the 70-
              153a/b models. There is be a long way to go, before all will be
              available. I would like, if possible, to have any unwanted manuals,
              to scan, or if possible, already scanned, preferably in .pdf format.
              All help will be appreciated. I am able to program all syn tech 1's,
              XTR, portables, 70-153/253, 70-145/254 if the jumper hasn't been
              removed, to allow field programming. All help would be appreciated.

              Thanks in advance

              And the URL for this site is?? I have lots of Syntech II and
              XTR lowband and VHF service manuals. USED to have lots of
              Syntech Is manuals as well but they have been lost over the years.
              Would like to see such a site since Midland LMR itself doesnt
              supply that info...I can program all but the 8channel Syntech Is,
              ALL Syntech IIs and XTRs (including the 8channel) and the
              70-x45 HTs as well as the 70-245 HTs....(have the 70-1052,
              the 70-1045 and the 70-1000C as well as the 70-1080A programmers)

              I don't have a URL, as of yet, but, am trying to find a free site,
              because, I am sure that will probably be over 20 megs of info. So I
              am now looking for a free server(with such capacity , still being
              free), to use, any suggestions? I have spent many hours scouring the
              net, for such manuals, and everybody wanted to sell, what they had,
              and I was hoping to set up a site where all the info was available
              for free, to everyone. This info is hard to find, you know.

              I have obtained a pair of VHF Midland hand helds type 70-165-48B and have searched the WEB looking for the programming interface details with no luck.
              I think I have found the programming software but can not test it yet.

               I am now at a dead end with these radios as it would be good to put then on 144-148Mhz  2m band as they also has the CTCSS in built.

              Can any one help with the programming cable details or a scanned circuit diagram of the CPU and connector areas so I can work out the interface cable. I think the programming is via the 3.5mm speaker socket.

              Also the 70-165 software lower band edge is 146mhz is there a way of programming 144mhz ?


              Thanks, please email me off group if you like,
              Arno.

              It does connect through the 3.5mm stereo speaker jack

              The programmer is discontinued and very hard to find.

              If you read back messages from the past couple of days you will see
              some postings of those that have programming capability for this
              model. Including myself.

              The software in the FILES area here will work but you need the 70-1052A
              programmer..you CANNOT build it as it has its own CPU and firmware..
              and is not cloneable..

              I can program them...but I am in the US (Houston, TX to be exact)

              Yes, the MHP.exe I placed here in the files area of the list DOES allow
              entry of freqs below 146...in fact you can go all the way down to 142!
              I did that so CAP/MARS users could program them.

              I recall a schmatic for the programmer on a russian web site.  I am looking to build one in software when  I find time to put a unit on our protocol analyzer so we can reverse engineer  the data format.  I have several cartons of unused 165's and 166's  that would be a lot more saleable if we had a programmer on site. 
               
              Contact    Dick Grasser rgrasser@...  in Rochester NY  and he can likely get you programmed for a fee that is less than most dealers  if you sent him the radios.

              Robbie,
              We have been a Midland shop for many years and have a
              lot of manuals. Mostly older models. I would like to
              keep them, but I might be able to lend many of them to
              you if you want to scan them in.
              Contact me off list.

              The amount of programming equipment we have to keep
              around is getting out of hand. I Have boxes and boxes
              of programmers, programming cables, new & old
              computers and laptops, PROMS, EPROMS, disks, CD's
              ....sheesh. Its ridiculous.

              As of now, I have someone willing to donate the web space, for the
              manual/info project. Hopefully, we'll be up and running in a few
              weeks, if all goes well. Hopefully we will have all info we can
              possibly amass, available, including mods, and cross references.

              Can anyone tell me what the steps are for using the 70-1050? I know
              the steps for frequencies, and CTCSS, but, what are the others for?
              which one sets up DTMF, and low power setting, and the appropriate
              numbers?

              One more question, what will work in the place of the 70-1100 eraser?
              I have tried a 6 watt blacklight, setting the eproms in the
              sunlight, for an entire day, and a 65 watt blacklight. Is it
              possible to erase the eproms w/o the eraser?

              Robbie,
               
              Most EPROMS need the light.  Blacklight is not the correct spectral composition and energy level.  Vague recollection is 254 nm wavelength.    EPROM erasers are a pale blue and real bad for your eyes.. equivalent to looking into a welding arc from a distance.    I have heard of sunlight used but it takes several  days (depending on latitude)  ... it can't be through a window...   and I am not sure of the long term reliability.     You should use the light level/duration (total Flux)  specified for your EPROM or you will get flaky results... in some cases they will appear to program and then later ones will morph to zeros... or zeros to ones... can't remember which way.      
               
              The EPROM spec will specify the total Flux required and  the ERASER will list the intensity ...you combine these numbers in a dimensionally appropriate way and out pops the time required.      There are some small erasers for $30 or $40....that will hold only 1 or 2 EPROMS.    A good investment if you plan to do a lot of these.
               
              Alternately a link to a DIY eraser that uses a germicidal tube (same as used in most small erasers) and a 4W battery fluorescent  (flashlight) fixture...note the safety warning regarding looking at  the light.   Note that many of the cheap flashlight type fluorescent fixtures are not well regulated... the same tube in 2 different units will give 30% different light output.

              There is nothing special about the 70-1100 eraser. The EPROM used in
              the Z-273 is a generic 2716 EPROM. Any EPROM eraser will do. You can
              probably find one on eBay or something for a few bucks.

              Actually, there is nothing special on the Z-273 at all. It ought to
              be possible to layout a new card. Has anyone done this?

              Another idea for your site is a cross reference of which programmers
              go with which radios.

              Hi Chris and others that replied,

              It looks like without the actual 70-1052 unit there is no way to reprogram the radio.  what a bummer !!!

              I will have to hunt around locally in Adelaide to see if a two way radio business can do me a favor and reprogram with my data file or lend me the lead over a weekend.

              thanks for all the help.

              Arno.

              I have a 70-252B that has had one channel installed. Recently I added
              a new pair of TX / RX crystals as a second channel but they don't
              seem to function. Is there any special alignment that needs to be
              performed? The original channel continues to work just as before.

              Where did you buy the crystals? Were the crystals manufactured for that
              model of radio?
              Is the second channel within 5 Mhz of the original frequency?

              It sounds as if either they were not cut properly for the radio or they
              are too far out of the band range of the original frequencies where the
              radio is probably tuned for.

              Well, I bought the crystals on an eBay auction. They appear to be
              unused. The orginal set of crystals in the radio is 467.85. The set I
              added is 462.700. I also have a set for 464.850. Neither of the new
              sets seem to work. Otherwise the radio works great. I may have to dig
              up a service manual.

              Check for a strap on the channel selector switch that keeps the original
              crystals in the circuit at all times. This was common practice on many
              single freq. radios, as it kept the user from putting the channel switch on
              a blank position and causing the radio not to work.

              Was there any documentation included with the crystals that indicated the
              crystals were manufactured for that model radio or just the sellers
              "honest to goodness" listing description?

              And the post for the single freq strapping is a good idea to check for. I
              don't recall seeing that done from Midland factory direct orders however
              that did not preclude the original selling dealer to do that for the
              customer.

              Can someone post all of the ways to program these radios ? I know they
              are both the same radio but with different ctrl head mounting
              configurations. I just want to know if they use a standalone
              programmer and or a PC programmer and what the programmer number or
              numbers are ? And if they do use a PC programmer is there a cable
              diagram available ?

              The Syntech I series (which you have) all program using a 70-1000
              programmer (either A or C model)...if you knew the HEX addresses
              and needed code in the EPROM, a standard EPROM programmer COULD do them as they are only 2716 EPROMs BUT they are soldered to the Z-273 board that then plugs into the radio (and the programmers!)..
              I can program them as I do have a 70-1000 programmer...

              The ctrl head is noted by the 2 and 6 in the model number...
              the basic model is a 70-050 (with the last 0 being replaced by the digit telling which control head is used) and A,B or C after them denoting range...A is 25-36MHz, B is 36-42 Mhz and C is 42-54 MHz..

              The radios have be retuned to cover the amateur bands and
              normally have ONLY a 1-2 MHz operating range...the rcvrs will cover the rptr outputs and the xmtr can be tuned to cover the rptr inputs with overlap at 52.525 and similar middle simplex freqs...IN otherwords, the STI series is not really usuable across the entire CA 500kHz bandplan but they ARE on the 1 MHz and 1.7 MHz split plans; so much for the usefulness of the 500 Khz plan...heck I cant see how you can base a plan on 20-30yr old radios like Motracs, etc that wont even cover the entire range!! Oh well....but I digress

              That's exactly the info that I was looking for. I do have a 2716
              programmer but no info on how the EPROM is laid out in the syntech I.

              I have a friend who is bringing a 70-1000 later this month but it
              would be nice to be able to use the PC EPROM programmer, maybe I'll
              put a socket in the radios EPROM module and program up a bunch of
              2716s ith the some channel info and then read it on the PC EPROM
              programmer to see if I can figure out the prom layout.

              Hi,
              I was asked by a friend of mine the same question about his 70-340b,
              and this is the information I found. I have uploaded 2 files to the
              files area, the first one (mid2716a.zip) is a C program I found
              online that creates layouts for the 340b. it however only does the
              frequencies, no scansetup or anything. It does however include the
              source code so you might be able to modify it. The second file
              (mp70.zip) is the program that comes with the 70-1000C programmer.
              It's usefullness as far as i can see is that after you create and
              your profile, you can manually edit the codeplug in hex. If you were
              really patient (or bored) you could proboly print it out and type it
              back into a file that would be acceptable for your programmer. It
              also lets you save the files in the program directly but i'm not sure
              what format they are in, you might get lucky and they may already be
              in bin/hex/etc. that you could convert.

              I'm still trying to figure out all the options in the program though
              so if anyone has the manual to the program, Please scan it and post
              it up!

              Hope this helps,

              The program that comes with the 1000c can save the file in a Bin format
              that can be dumped into the 2716 on the Z-273 module.. The problem
              is unless you want to solder the 2716 in and out ever time you want to
              prg. up the radio or can find a very low profile socket, cause the 2716
              in a socket make the 2716 hit the CPU chip and the module isn't fully
              seated.. I have some ideas about a daughter card that the module will
              plug in to and that card would plug into the standard Eprom prg'er...

              With a access time in the 10's ms in write mode, it would be kind of
              easy, but the access time < 1 ms during reads it's a bit harder...

              I have the same c program and the compiled version also and I was
              changing the source code to match a 70-052 low band radios injection
              tx and rx if frequencies, what I needed was the eeprom file created by
              a 70-1000 to compare to the my modified program for an external eeprom
              burner. And now that you have uploaded the 70-1000C program I can
              compare the 2 2716 eprom output files, one from the 70-1000c and the
              other from the C code, and figure out the eprom layout I'll post the
              results but I'm sure others will be doing the same.

              Hi,
               
              I am trying to "read" an XTR radio with the factory issue programming lead & software.
               
              Whenever I activate "upload" ie read the radio configuration, the program exits back to DOS.
               
              The com port is correct, the radio is turned on (obviously).
               
              Sometimes the computer display say "divide error".
               
              Occasionaly when booting up the radio with show either E7 or E8 on the radio display. This does not happen every time, and it doesn't happen often.
               
              Any ideas?

              No on both.
              The 1336 is only an 8 channel radio rated @ 25W

              Now that I've got the programming working, I'm looking for the cause of a permanently illuminated "MON" (monitor) lamp. This was evident with the radio when I received it, second hand. Pressing the "MON" switch does not change anything.
               
              I can't yet verify if the radio is permanently working in "carrier squelch" mode, I assume that the "MON" function is normally meant to temporarily disable the tone squelch requirement on channels that require a receive tone.
               
              The radio is a 70-1630B (UHF).
               
              Any ideas?

              Since no one else has answered you yet so here goes. There is a jumper on the radio power plug that needs to be jumpered. I don't know which pins
              it is because I am not familiar with your radio. It will be a easy fix though.
               
              So some one else can tell you which pins.

              The 1532 is a XTR.....same cable/interface is used for it as the
              Syntech IIs (schematic I THINK is also in the FILES area...if not,
              I'll UL it asap)..

              Hi. I am a new memeber to the group. I have be involved in some
              motorola, most ge and maxon products and I am starting to get
              involved in midland 2 way radio equipment. Does anyone have a list
              of what model radios are computer programmable and what it takes to
              program them? Also, my local police use mostly midland radios on a
              series of vhf repeaters. Are dispatch center is almost 150 miles
              away in a different city from us. They can not hear what they are
              saying unless the repeater is "open". To open the repeater, the
              members push a button on the radios that is marked "DSP". Then there
              are a series of beeps followed by the voice of the dispatcher. I am
              told this is a microwave link to the dispatcher from the repeater
              site. Does anyone know how this is done on these radios and how to
              put a board into these radios to make a series of tones? Thanks.

              BUT IF you plan to try to put the 045Cs on 6m FM, forget it..
              the VCOs will not go above 52.25 MHz and they are SEALED...you cannot retune them :( I tried and ended up destroying one..
              The radio WILL program fine to whatever you want...but just don't plan on using them for amateur service above 52 MHz...

              I don't have the print for the radio......But I would
              offer some advise. I used a 1336b on 2 meters and
              since the front end isn't tunable the Rx sens was
              about .45 uv and the squelch really sucked unless you
              used pl. My advise would be to use ANY THING else for
              a packet radio.

              The 1336B is rated at 150-174 and I think the front end is fixed and
              usually doesnt go down to 144-148...you MAY be able to retune the front
              end (I did so on an XTR that was rated only from 42-50MHz and they cover
              the front end slugs with a metal cover that is a PITA to remove!
              Was able to get the radio to cover 44-54 Mhz with no problem)...
              Since my Midland sales book shows a tracking wideband preselector
              (70-2166-1), that could be in the radio and can be retuned once
              programmed in the amateur range...(including VCOs) OR its a fixed WB
              front end...but still should be able to be modified (may need some
              cap changes, etc)...(I never dealt with the 8 channel models that
              much...and didnt at all with the VHF range series!)

              They did offer a data modem option for the 800MHz version...so I
              suspect the radio is capable of 9600 baud...but no guarantees..
              They did also offer DCS (Digital squelch) with all models so it
              a good bet it can be moded for 9600 packet...

              If I can dig up a schematic on the radio, I can tell you more...and
              be able to give you connection points for the 9600 packet...

              The connections for the 34 pin cable are noted below but note, there
              are better places to tap than the 34 pin connector (like off the MB
              instead...the radio NEEDS the head to work..or an equiv...not a just
              Vol/SQ controls)

              Pin 12 is B+ switched out from the head.
              Pin 13 is B+ from the radio

              Pin 18 is Mic in

              There is none...the vol control is a DC level control...audio is
              attenuated in the RF deck (same for under dash models as well)..
              Look for the IC AN5262...thats the gain control IC on the main board.
              Fixed vol is available at Pin 1 of the IC (there is a 10uF cap
              feeding it)..there is lower level points at J408 pin 12,
              J410 Pin 9 (which is jumpered to Pin 8 in COS radios) and J403, Pin 4
              (output of the CTCSS board)..probably easier to take it off the
              jumper and feed it out separately.

              Pin 20

              Pin 7

              Pin 7 (Its combined in radio with COS...if you go to the MB, there is
              PL decode out on J403, Pin 6...but just use Pin 7 instead...if the
              radio is in PL rcv and the MON LED is not on, the pin 7 on the 34pin
              works on BOTH COS and PL...if the MON LED IS on, then Pin 7 is COS
              only. Run that into the controller and you're safe...BTW this is a
              HI going point driving the LED directly...you will HAVE to buffer
              this and probably disconnect the LED to get a good level for an
              external controller)

              Pins 2, 9, 25 OR chassis! :)

              Once upon a time, I think Midland made a kit to convert a dash mount
              Syntech II to trunk mount. Does anybody have an idea where I can
              find one?

              I also need 1 Syntech II deluxe control head.

              OK, this is wierd. I have a VHF Syntech II (70-3400).
              I can read it's existing programming, write it back, even
              modify it just fine.

              If I try to create a new program, I get an error 3 on
              reboot.

              This is with either a file set for 148-174 or 143-174.

              Anybody know what byte to change in an existing .prg file
              to allow the entry of lower frequencies (not the .chl file,
              I tried that). There HAS to be something in the .prg.

              Terry, I have a 5300 that I wanted to program in 440 stuff in and
              the only way I could get the limits changed was to change the values
              in the .exe file.. I tried to make a Ham version with every model's
              limits opened to include the Ham bands, but the exe wouldn't run
              after that.. ? I just made the 1 change for the model I had and it was
              OK.. You fugure? To make the change, I edited the .exe with a binary
              editor and changed the limits that were in ascii..

              Hope this helps..

              You are talking about in SYNTECH2.EXE? Because my software also has the ASCII st2.chl
              file.

              I had 2 versions of Syntech2.exe, V4.00 & V1.11.. I coundn't get the radio to read or
              write with
              the V4.00, you would think a higher level, must be better.. The V1.11 is in the file area
              here and
              that would read & write from the radio just fine, but the freq. limits aren't in the
              st2.chl like there
              are on the V4.00.. That's when I went digging into the SYNTECH2.EXE and found them
              there..
              Once the radio was programmed with the 440 lower limit, it cound be changed with orig.
              ver.
              of SYNTECH2.exe V1.11, so it does store the limits in the radio..

              Hi I wonder if anyone can help? I've got two problems.

              1. A 70-165-48b the radio appears to read and write ok but when
              switched on dispays err-3 which indicates abnormal data written or
              data not in Midland format. Yet the software reads and writes it OK.

              2. A 70-165-16 the radio works Ok but can't be read from or written
              too, I've checked on other radios and the 1025 etc is OK.

              Any ideas???

              Regards

              All Syntechs (I and II) as well as the XTRs can be converted...
              the kits may be hard to find now....check with Midland LMR in
              Kansas City if you cannot find them...they DO have a limited supply
              of parts left for those series (but you WILL pay new price...check
              on Ebay or perhaps someone here will have it!)

              Hello
              Am trying to find out what the "split" is on this Midland #70-050B.
              Is it such that it can be "stretched" to cover "Six Meters"?
              Does this radio use a "programmer" or a cable that you connect to the board the holds the prom, and a RIB?

              I'm new to the Midland, but have few, and would like to get set up for programming.
              Thanks for any info.

              Midland 70-050B is 35 to 44-MHz.
               
              I doubt that it will tune up to 6-meters without a lot of component changes.  Programming involves removing the EPROM circuit board (know as the Z-273) and programming it in a 70-1000 or 70-1000-C programmer.

              Can you help me figure out the pins? There is a distinct keyway on one

              Hi again Chris,
               
              any chance of getting diagram of the 70-248 cloning cable?
               
              a helpful radio workshop let me program a few of the radios but is 70 miles from home! Will need to program a few more soon and cloning will save a long trip.
               
              Also, do you happen to know if the 248 will cope with 430MHz - 440MHz? I'd like to experiment, to use with my ham licence. I've got my radio on 467 / 458 at the moment.

                I think the clone cable is a simple reversed cable like a RS232
                between DTE and DTE or DCE and DCE (null modem type but not really)..I'll get the info out of the manual and post it here.

                I have a copy but its on the 0371/0375 model (110w). I'll see if I have a 50watt manual but the 50+ XTRs we had at my former employment were 110w versions..(one 50watt Syntech II and the rest of the fleet was 110watt STIIs)
                If I DO have a 50watt manual, I have one person already wanting one...but will be happy to copy for you (professional copying)

                Dear freinds,

                I dont know if this is the correct list, I have recently bought a
                pair of Midland G-223 two way radios, on channels 1 to 22 (450 Mhz
                or so) but I am not satisfied from the expected range of "up to 7
                miles". In best conditions, the range hardly reaches 1 mile!

                I need it for outdoors, do anyone has experience or a better
                suggestion, on brand or on frequency band or on output watts?

                Thanks,

                FRS is limited in power and antenna gain by design to the limits established by the FCC, so on the FRS channels I would expect the power to throttle back to the 500 mW.  It is good for trips to the market, and situations where all you need is a few hundred meters range.  They are small, cheap, and simple.  But by design, they don't offer much range.
                 
                GMRS has different limits,  so logically the radio may perform slightly better on those channels, but unless you have gone through the process of getting a GMRS licence, you are subject to fines if you use those channels.  It baffles me why the FCC would type accept FRS/GMRS radios when they know darned well that folks may either not understand the distinction, or may choose to disregard the license requirement.  Perhaps they were thinking of all the moola they would rake in with strict enforcement.   In these parts if the FCC bothers to go catch someone, they slap an attention-getting fine on the violator.  I seem to recall numbers like $8,000, though for the life of me I can't figure out why they didn't round it up to $10K.... nor would I expect them to be that severe for unauthorized use of GMRS channels after they type accepted the radio knowing full well that the average buyer wouldn't observe the rules.  Go figure!
                 
                Anyway, if FRS doesn't give you the range you need, consider that there is a new service started in 2000, called MURS that falls in the VHF spectrum rather than UHF so you start off with better line of sight range for comparable power levels.   MURS allows 2 watt transmitters.  The bandwidth is somewhat narrower than previous services, but if you can find a radio you like, you should be better off. 
                 
                Of course you can also go the way of GMRS.  GMRS does require licensing, but in some areas has attracted enough interest that there are a well established network of repeaters that provide excellent wide area coverage.  Of course you would want to invest in  real GMRS radios, not the cheesy FRS/GMRS hybrids.

                I have a 70-166-32A   (seen as  70-166D-32A  by the 1052a programmer).    The programming software limits the radio to 136-156MHz.  Is there any way to get it to program to 156.025MHz?  Is there a modified version of the programming software out there?

                Frank,

                D is for Display - If your radio has a display then
                this should be the correct choice.

                Not sure on modified software. I guess you finally got
                the programming interface.

                Hello

                I'm hoping to find alignment info for the Syntek 1 Midland 70-380A VHF radio.
                A copy of pertinent pages would be great. Have the test set and am ready to go!

                I have the 70-380A manual in front of me, and the alignment section is about 10-pages.
                I will be happy to Xerox these and send them to you in the Postal Mail.  I can even FAX them to you, which would be easiest for the both of us, if you have a way of receiving a FAX.

                Hi Guys:

                I have a box of 70-9015 800 Mhz mobiles. Can these
                be used for anything other than boat anchors?

                It would be cool if they can be made to work on
                the 902-928 ham band....has anyone tried?

                I am sitting one four of those 70-9015. So far no luck. I don't think the VCO will reach 900, the PA is good to 875M, and the filter in the front end will pass only 850-870. I think they are good for parts... Anyway if anybody have a schematic/service manual extra, i am interested.      Have a good day. 73 de VA2MAA Michel

                I'm trying to work out a model number for a Midland I have, and also to find
                the version of software for the radio.

                I have posted a heap of pictures in the photos section of the group at:
                http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/MidlandLMR/lst?.dir=/Unknown+Midland+Mo
                del+Number&.src=gr&.order=&.view=t&.done=http%3a//briefcase.yahoo.com/

                This is what I do know about the radio. It appears to be an XTR model, I
                know the radio only has one channel in it 80.46000 MHz (so it will have a B
                on the end of it), and that it is remote mount. It is a commercial radio so
                it starts with the numbers 70-

                This is about all I know at the moment though.

                What I'm looking for is the middle 4 numbers to make a model number
                something like:

                70-????B XTR

                I know the easy way of course is to check the label with the model number on
                it, but of course the radio conveniently doesn't have this number anymore.
                Which of course means there is no serial number I presume as I can't find
                one of them on the radio either.

                Can anyone help me out with a model number for the radio?

                Thanks in advance,

                Brian

                IF the freq in it is 80.46 MHz, then it HAS to be a 70-1075B 77-88MHZ
                XTR trunk mount 15-40 watts...look at the sticker on the microprocessor
                for the software rev....

                Would that be MCX or MMCX?  I've never run across an MX series for coax connectors.

                Attachments :
                  Edmund,
                   
                  MCX and MMCX are miniature RF connectors used on a wide variety of RF devices.... These are not the same as the MX connector on portable radios.
                   
                  The MX connector is really a mount for rubber duck antennas that screw into the tops of the listed radios (as well as radios from Motorola, Maxxon... and others) .   The MIDLAND MX mounts are very similar to the Motorola and Maxx on and in fact the MX connector antennas are pretty much interchangeable for all of these radios because they only require the connection to the center conductor of the connector.    This center conductor  is a 1/4 inch  stud with a 32 pitch thread on the antenna that screws into the matching socket on the top or the portable radio.    The difference however is that the Motorola radios have a deep groove  around the outside of the center conductor and the outside of this groove is at ground potential.   Hence the MOT variant of the adaptor has a shield that engages the ground.  The diameter of this is however too small for the MIDLAND
                   
                  I believe every  tech out there is familiar with this adaptor  as they require these adaptors for checking sensitivity and power output on radios that have the MX connector for the antenna.
                   
                  Here is a pic of the adaptor...   so if anyone knows where to get these  or better yet has them... I need 2 to 10 of these depending on price.

                  Thanks, I will try them.  
                   
                  So far, the ones from Tesco (RF industries) shorted out... so I sent them back.
                   
                  The ones just ordered from MIDLAND under new part number 70-165xxx   can't remember the number .....    are still way to close for comfort between the shield contact and the hot center element... about 0.012 clearance if it centers perfectly... which it does not... so I don't dare key the radio.
                   
                  The old midland part 70-1032  is the one that I need, but Midland does not list it any more.

                  Subject 70-155B VHF handhelds, off frequency operation
                   
                  This is a strange one group. I have been working on identical 70-155B radios, however one has 5.12 IF, the second one has a 10.24 IF. Both radios talked to each other on simplex channels before reprogramming the proms. Both had 150 headings. Both radios came from the same government source. A copied prom from a 3rd 70-155B works fine in the 10.24 IF radio, but causes an off frequency situation in the 5.12 IF radio. A 151.625 program actually transmits on 151.495 and receives on 151.475, even though the prom is clearly programmed for 151.625 simplex.
                   
                  I've tried different headings and even tried to change to high injection, to no avail. The serial numbers of the 2 radios are about 10,000  apart. Programming info shows a 20.48 IF, which the above IF's multiplied would equal the 20.48.
                   
                  This is the second time I have encountered an off frequency situation with this model. Any one else experience an off frequency situation for no apparent reason in the 70-155B??? No manual available.
                   
                  If copies of a manual are available, please contact Gary WB6IBB at wb6ibb@... for costs and availability.

                  Hi Gang,
                  I have 4 Midland 70-336B mobiles that i need to program.
                  I have the 70-1000 Programmer but I do not have the required 70-1072
                  adapter.
                  Anybody got one. I don't even know what It looks like.
                  I have just read about it in the 1000 manual.

                  Thanks for your time.

                  are they decent radios?

                  The 70-565B is a UHF Dash-Mount Mobile radio, 450 to 470-MHz,  65-watt.
                  It requires the 70-1000 stand-alone programmer or the 70-1000C  PC programmer.  The Z-273 EPROM module must be removed from the radio and inserted in the programmer to program.  These will do 80-Channels, Scan, and PL or DPL with appropriate Tone Board.
                   
                  These work nicely in the 440-MHz HAM band.

                  Thank you so much for the info. I guess I'll have to find the 1000C

                  you can also program the chip using a basic eprom programmer as long as you have made a dat file using the MRP programming software. you do the channels and save the file and then you need to remove the chip from the Z273 circuit board, then put it in your eprom programmer and use the previously saved dat file to write the chip. this is an alternative to the normal way of doing the chip. it has always worked well for me as i use low profile ic sockets in my sets and they are easy to pull the chip out and wipe it and reprogramm it.

                  There is a model LMR 70-050C

                  A model LMR 70-342BXL (can you tell me what the XL stands for? I have
                  seen 70-342B's for sale but never a BXL.

                  Last is an LMR 70-340B

                  I would like to know the frequency range, power and # of channels and
                  do they all have eeproms that are used for programming?

                  50 watt low band spec 42-50, will go to 54 mhz. Max freq spread about 1 1/2 mhz
                  tell me what the XL stands for? I
                  but never a BXL.
                  40 watt WIDEBAND will cover 144-174 BXL, AXL model 136-160 mhz.. the BXL is just alater version of a 342B which is also wideband, but takes a different heading. A "B" radio uses a "150" heading, the "BXL" uses a "15b" heading when programming the prom.

                  40 watt VHF, will cover any 8 mhz spread between 146-172 mhz
                  and # of channels
                  for programming?
                  All the Syntech 1 series are 80 channels, and utilize an erasable prom for programming. Prom located front center of radio under top cover.

                  The 342B also may be programmable into the 2mtr band and its front end
                  CAN be retuned..

                  ALL the above are Syntech I series....require the 70-1000A or C
                  programmer but I DONT think the 1000C will work on the BXL models.
                  They are EPROM, not EEPROM....use a plug in module that holds the
                  EPROM.

                  The 70-050C is a 80 channel dash mount 50 watt 42-54 mhz radio.

                  The 70-342BXL is a 80 channel wide band (24 mhz IIRC) dash mount 40 watt VHF
                  148-174 mhz

                  The 70-340B crosses over to an 80 channel dash mount 40 watt VHF 148-174 mhz

                  They all require the 70-1000 programmer.

                  I have some information about the Midlands in the cross reference section on
                  my website.
                  I would be glad to add any other model information that anyone has about the
                  Midlands (or other commercial gear)

                  No software available. Programming is done via a 70-1000 or 70-1000C programmer. However the "C" programmer does require the use of a PC, the eprom still plugs into the programmer. The programmers (either model) do appear on Ebay at times. There is a 70-1000 listed now under "Midland" titles. You will also require the use of a UV eraser to blank the prom, but not until you copy all the current heading data into the programmer.

                  The 70-342BXL is a 80 channel wide band (24 mhz IIRC) dash mount 40 watt VHF
                  148-174 mhz

                  The 70-340B crosses over to an 80 channel dash mount 40 watt VHF 148-174 mhz

                  They all require the 70-1000 programmer.

                  I have some information about the Midlands in the cross reference section on
                  my website.
                  I would be glad to add any other model information that anyone has about the
                  Midlands (or other commercial gear)

                  You might have already got this problem fixed, but, I heard from
                  another tech that if you are programmed outside the 150-174 range,
                  you need to retune so the pll will stay locked. I don't know if that
                  is it or not? I just have been checking out one for a friend and
                  still have a lot to learn. Did you get your problem fixed already?
                  If so, please inform me.
                  Thanks, Don.

                  Tim:

                  I have this manual. It is 80-pages and has many fold-outs. Also a few
                  addendums.

                  I will be willing to make a copy of it for you, but it will be rather
                  involved, unless I take it to a place like Kinko's and have them make
                  the copy.

                  If you don't get any other replies to your request, hopefully someone
                  that will sell you an original manual, then let me know, and I will make
                  you a copy.

                  Good luck, Martin W4FOT

                  What do you want to alighn ? The rx is wide band, the
                  only thing that you can tune is the IF which doesn't
                  do any good. Also if you use CS and not PL for rx it
                  stinks. I use one on 2 meters for a standby rig and
                  the RX SUCKS, ( about 2 uv )If you want to use this
                  for a Ham Rig don't waste your time.

                  I need the VCO alingment instructions. ie voltage test points etc.
                  I found the Tx and Rx VCO ajustments.
                  I will be using it in the commercial band not HAM.
                  Yea 2u Volts is bad. I think they will do better though.
                  If I get time I will experement and see what I can do, if I get a manual.

                  Tim, I think there's a TP Pin sticking up right next to the VCO compartment
                  to measure the VCO voltage.. You want to keep the VCO as close to the
                  4v range.. You'll need to balance from the highest to lowest freq. and repeat for
                  Rec & Xmit. I don't think this is the WB radio, so I'm not sure how far you can
                  go.. I think we had a 336 on our Rptr. as a remote base in the 147 range and
                  it worked well, not the hottest thing, but not 2uv either.. The 336 wouldn't
                  work well in the 145 range though.. I think it was VCO lockup problems..

                  -73, Pete N2MCI

                    i don't have any idea how much to offer, i have got some similar radios
                    (70-530c) that i paid between $60 and $120 , i also had to reprogram them so
                    i could use them so if you could just indicate what you want for it that
                    would be ok

                    Have you got the scan button on your front pannel, if so you may need to program the scan channels into the eprom. if there are no scan buttons (not the monitor one) (up to 2 more depending on the model) you will need to dismantle your front panel to gain access to the display pcb when you are looking at the pcb you will see the led and switch for the monitor feature, this will be on the left hand side of the pcb and next to it you will see some unused copper tracks these are for upto 2 more switches also you will see that in line with the monitor led there will be a black plastic led holder for 2 leds. you will be able to get it to go into 2 different kinds of scan 1 which just scans and when the mike is keyed the radio default back to the channel it was on when the scan was started, the other will allow the radio to transmit on the channel that the scan had locked up on. all this is possible only if the eprom chip has been programmed to do this.
                     
                    ps i have a copy of the programming software that i am able to share.

                    I inherited a 70-1526b that appears to be in very good shape. The
                    problem is I want to use it can anyone tell me what PC software I
                    need and the programing cable either already made or the schematics
                    for one and what type of connector is used on the radio side.


                    Thanks

                    The cable is a 70-1308A. and from what I have been told there
                    is one chip made by Motorola that is sold ONLY to Midland.

                    The software I think is in the "files" section of this list yahoo web site.

                      Hi

                      I have a 70-1340B and 70-1440B which have a small circuit board inside
                      labeled RB-1. It is about 1.5 in square with an 8 pin IC, and has 6 colored
                      wires coming out to various points in the radio. The board looks like a user
                      installed part, since it solders to several points and is attached with
                      double sided tape.

                      Anyone know what it is? Anyone have a pin out for it?

                      Thanks
                      Peter

                      Drop a note to Com-Spec tech support and ask then to email you
                      the RB-1 data sheet. If that's what you have, it's a little board
                      that adds Moto-style reverse burst.

                      recently purchased a 70-485 B, and we are not getting any sound,
                      radio is transmitting, and the busy light works as with the carrier
                      signal. The speaker is connected into the port on the control head,
                      via 2 wires, does there need to be a jumper, to jump out a hang up
                      box, or jump out at the power connector, or does the speaker need to
                      be hooked up into the rear of the remote radio, in the power
                      connector? All help is greatly appreciated.

                      Check the power connector on the radio itself. It should have a jumper
                      between 2 pins, along with the + and - wires. If that jumper isn't in
                      place, you'll have no speaker audio

                        As for the radio staying on channel 0, I'm not sure. I haven't been a

                        Does anyone have information or the ability to program a UHF Midland
                        70-1562b Mobile radio? I have one sitting here I'd like to be able
                        to use. Any help would be appreciated and I thank you in advance.

                        The saga continues.
                        I have a Midland 70-1000 programmer with the "H1" Version software.
                        I borrowed a 70-1020 adapter from a very helpful HAM.
                        Well guess what.
                        The Z383 EPROM from the 70-336B requires a 70-1000 programmer with
                        the "L3" version Software.

                        Now for the $64.00 question.
                        Does anyone have the "L3" software EPROM lying around ?

                        Thanks a lot for your time.

                        Good afternoon,

                        I have both a 70-340B (Dash) and 70-441B (Remote) units with the same
                        problem, no Tx but Rx is fine. The Main VCO voltage adjusts OK however the
                        Tx VCO is 6.5v and adjusting L107 has no affect.

                        Has anyone had this problem?

                        There is a post (available in the archives of this group) dated 10-04-
                        2003 which details what you need.

                        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MidlandLMR/message/1000

                        Genuine Midland cables are about $90.00. There is someone selling
                        generic interface on eBay and I believe he also posted here a few
                        months ago. Haven't seen too many other generic ones.

                        keep forgetting we can sell Maxon too (since Midland merged with
                        Topaz3, the distribution company for Maxon in North America)

                        Hi Everyone,

                        I have been through the archives, and come to the conclusion that the
                        only way I am going to be able to program the 70-245 HH radio is with
                        the 70-1045 programmer....unless I missed something?
                        Can anyone give me an idea of what the 70-1045 pricing is? How to the
                        Midland dealers feel about selling these units? Or can they?

                        I came into a few of these radios recently and want to put them to
                        use, but they are on commercial frequencies which are useless to me.
                        I havent approched anyone about programming them for me, but last
                        time I went to have a Motorola radio progammed, the place wanted $90
                        to do it for me....and Ill be damned if I am going to pay that....

                        Any help is greatly appreciated!!

                        Yep, the 70-245 needs the 1045 Handheld programmer......and they are RARE!!!
                        I have one....and as gun folks say, they will have to pry it from my dead cold hands :)

                        BUT I can program the radios for you a lot cheaper than that Mother M dealer will....
                        but there is the border issue (US-CA) and shipping.

                        Contact me direct if you wish...

                        Need information on this battery CM-12G
                        is it an alkaline battery pack?
                        if so how do you open it to replace batteries?
                        and what battery packs are available for

                        CM-12G sounds like an Icom America 10-cell battery box.
                        If I recall, you squeeze the short sides near the bottom and push the
                        insert downward from the metallic end with the other hand.

                        Good afternoon,

                        I have a 70-441B that fails to turn on when power is applied. This
                        is a remote head unit and it appears that the relay does not engage.

                        With out a manual, I'm having trouble tracking down the problem. Has
                        anyone had this problem before?

                        There is a PICO minature fuse on the main board....it's probably open....this is usually caused by the
                        control head cable being connected with the head turned on....or a loose connector causing
                        a momentary power cycle..Its there to protect the control cable and radio from a short in the cable or head.
                        I cant recall if its grey or black but it should be near the relay.

                          Hey thanks Pete, I just bought the radio and had it tuned and programmed on six meters and its a great radio. Wish I had the stuff to program it as I would buy a couple more .      Thanks and 73's Bob w4bam

                          You can find "70-1308" aftermarket (NOT original Midland) programmers on
                          Ebay.....the software that evidently works only with them can be gotten
                          from the Russian web site.....there IS a schematic and software on this
                          list web site at Yahoo that does work with the XTRs...(I put it there)
                          but you have to build it....the plug is a std dual inline 10pin used in
                          PCs for Serial IO connections on MBs.

                          i have purchased an 70-442xl. i have programmed the e-prom and
                          verified it on a 70-1000. when i hooked the radio up a 95 is flashing
                          on the control head. any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

                          Hi Craig, A "95" error code display and triple beep when the unit is turned on  would indicate the main VCO needs tuning.
                           
                          good luck, Herman

                          What heading did you use for the e-prom? A 442BXL or AXL requires a 15b heading and if you programmed a 150 heading, that would also result in a "95" readout. You don't indicate if the radio is a BXL or AXL. AXL stock range is about 136-160, the BXL is 148-172. They easily go beyond the 24 mhz stock spread. Make sure you have the proper heading and the right frequency entries for the model you have.

                          The XL versions have a much wider functional frequency range than the
                          standard Syntech radios. Unless you afre trying to use the radio way
                          out of its intended range, it is unlikely the VCO can not lock on the
                          frequencies you are using. It is possible, but unlikely. I would
                          double chk the header as stated in Larry's message.

                          The Midland 70-145BMX (VHF) and 70-245 (UHF) use the standalone 70-
                          1045 programmer. The unit has its own keypad and display. This unit
                          is not a PC based interface. You can see a picture of it on my
                          website. You open up the radio and plug the programmer into a six pin
                          connector inside. If there is a PC based programming solution
                          available for this unit, I am not familiar with it.

                          But what heading are you using? MUST be 15b, not 150. That freq will work in either a BXL or AXL radio.

                          Hi John,
                          Thanks for your help. I have what I need thanks to someone from the
                          group. There is a pc interface for the 70-145BMX and the 70-245B. It
                          is # 70-1046 It works good with an older pc.
                          Thanks,
                          Ralph

                          Didn't see the whole subject message, was cut off. If using the 15b
                          heading, there should be no problem in programming that frequency. You
                          may have another error in the heading. The easiest way to make sure the
                          proper heading and data is entered is to copy the existing prom before
                          erasing. Granted, some agencies erase proms and even remove them. The
                          radio may have been ordered out with special injection and you need a
                          different heading code.

                          Here's the different headings for VHF radios-
                          150-136-174 21.4 RecIF 20.48 TxIF Low INJ
                          15a- " " " High Inj
                          15b " " 19.2 Low
                          15c " " " High

                          Try the other headins and see what happens

                          Larry

                          John,

                          Midland also made the 70-1046 PC/Radio interface which used the 70-1445
                          software package to program the x35 and x45 series portables. I've found it
                          to be an awkward and finiky piece to work with, but it eventually seems to
                          work.

                          Since Midland never did manufacture their own portables (or much of anything
                          for that matter), there are a LOT of variations of programming stuff for
                          their portables out there. The 70-1045 that you mentioned is another
                          option.

                          Mike...

                          I am trying to use the Midland Windows software to read a 70-3400
                          radio, it starts to read, shows 3% and then stops, no error message,
                          but when you try to read the radio again it gives a failure to
                          communicate message. I've tried on 2 different computers running
                          Windows 95 and Windows 2000, both with the same results. Cable and
                          software work fine with other XTR's. Any sugestions?

                          Thanks

                          You might need to do the programming in dos mode. just put the radio software in a folder in your root directory (c: for the uninitiated ) and then restart your system into dos ( this method will only work on win 95,win 98. win me and later you will need a boot disk ) you then type cd\name of folder then hit the enter key. next type dir to see what the executable file is E.G.-XTR.exe the file is most likely xtr as mine is of that type ( 70-1630b ) the radio should read ok, some systems use to much system resources for the radio programming software to work properly in windozzzzz, and so you need to do it in dos mode.
                           
                          good luck i hope this helps

                          This is the newest Windows software from Midland, it will only run under Windows 95 or better.
                           
                          I messed with it some more and now have a flashing E09  / SCI error.

                          I've been told that there is a software to program the 70-056C with a regular PROM burner. Can anyone tell me anything further about this? I need to program one for 6m amatuer use, and don't have easy access to the factory programmer. Can anyone tell me any more about this?

                          Brett,

                          They go by the number 1000C, were made for (or by) a large Midland dealer in Australia and have been offered on Ebay several times and going for around the $300 mark.  I understand they will program most functions ok but leave some out like talk-a-round.  You will also need a prom eraser because you can not write over a Midland Prom.

                          I still see both the programmer and prom eraser on Ebay once in a while.

                          -look to your left, in the Files section of this group it is the last
                          file at the very bottom. This is the correct program to be used for
                          generating the proper binary files to be used in any standard eprom
                          burner. It says for use in the 70-1000C so you can't miss it. I'm
                          told it Works great, I know several people who use it for all of
                          their 10 and 6 meter syntech I's.

                          Also remove the prom on the Z board by unsoldering it and replace it
                          with a low profile socket, this way all you have to do is remove the
                          prom from the low profile socket in the radio each time you need a
                          change, or you can even have several different proms and just pop the
                          cover and replace and away you go.

                          Hi all,
                          I've been given a Midland 70-1530D. I beleive these are commonly
                          known as the XTR, is that correct?
                          Next, I assume that programming the radio is achieved by the little
                          connector hiding under the rubber flap on the top panel, near the
                          speaker? Its marked J402 on the PCB.
                          And am I correct thinking that the 70-1308_9.pdf file is the
                          programming interface that can be adapted to programming the XTR? If
                          so, how do I translate the connections in that file to the 10 pin
                          J402 (two rows of five pins)?
                          And lastly, the XTRV3.zip file is the correct programming software?

                          Sorry for all the questions!
                          Ta - Jason

                          the 10 pin connector is set up in the following order , or at least mine does. the schematic i have shows the connections as A1-A5 and B1-B5 on my 1630b and my mates 1530 the pins A1 & B1 are at the front of the set A2 & B2 just behind then and so on. the A side of the connector also has a notch about halfway along it, i used an old computer serial lead which had a suitable 10 pin plug. i removed the D-plug from the other end . then looking at the flat ribbon cable there should be a stripe on one wire of the cable. this will be the pin one wire next you separaten the wires a couple of centimetres from the end of the cable. once that is done start at the pin one wire wihich will be A1.next will be B1,A2 , B2 , A3 , B3, A4, B4, A5 . the last pinis not used on the lead. this info is from the 70-1336 programming info document that i downloaded from the internet and have since used the schematic to build and the software to reprogramm 2 radios with success. the circuit uses a nine pin D-plug to connect to the comms port on the pc , a max 232 ic (i used a hin232 instead) and a few caps.

                          A 70-0351C is a XTR not Titan....different animal...the XTR svc manuals may not be available from Midland LMR
                          anymore since they have been out of production for a while! I haven't checked but I think my dealer manual
                          showed them priced in 1994 at $35 or 40.....

                          I sent Grant direct email (have the XTR svc manual for LB)....Pricing for a
                          good copy is about $30 bucks according to my local Kinkos including fold pages and color!
                          but that is an estimate...(in case anyone else is interested! ;)

                          Sorry, got my model #'s mixed up. I was thinking it was the 70-0511C
                          Titan. I will check to see if I have an extra one of those.

                          Hey Rob-

                          341 was Midlands first attempt at a wideband VHF radio. Uses the normal
                          150 heading, not the 15b associated with the AXL/BXL's. Not quite as wide
                          as the BXL's. I get 144-174 out of them, a few 341's were about 146-172.
                          I've traded out or dumped the last of my 341's. Only had 2 or 3 from the
                          early 80's. Too many BXL's available to keep them in service..

                          I have a 150W VHF Base-Tech base station that I would like to find a couple
                          manuals for.

                          1) I need a service manual for a 70-3400B VHF mobile. This is the
                          radio portion of the base.

                          2) This base has a remote control board installed. Not knowing if it
                          is dc or tone, I was told that it could be a 71-2050 or a 71-2060. The
                          board used is an SSC model 824AA. Once someone helps me determine the
                          Midland model for this option, I will be trying to locate a manual, as well.

                          If anyone can help me out, even with just info, I would really appreciate
                          it. If you do have an extra manual, let me know your price.

                          Thanks,

                          Thank you Rob for allowing me to join and be apart of
                          your group. The first question that I have is does
                          anyone have a pin out for the power plug for this
                          radio. I know what most of the pins are for, but I
                          saw something that I never seen inside one of these
                          radios before and was wondering why it was done. The
                          thing was that there was a wire from one of the postes
                          in the mic jack run back and soildered onto one of the
                          pins in the power plug. This is why I was looking for
                          a pin out of the power plug to see what each of the
                          ten pins are used for and to see if they can be used
                          for more than one thing. Thanks again and I will
                          await a reply from anyone if they can help me out.

                          It takes software and a hardware interface box as well. The interface box
                          is getting pretty rare to come by anymore.

                          Hi all,
                          I've got a pair of Midland 70-1530D UHF mobiles.
                          I've built two versions of the interface found in the files section
                          here (based on the 70-1336 & 70-1309 programming interfaces) and used
                          the 10 pin header plug information, and using the XTR3.exe software
                          to try to talk to the radios using COM1.
                          The 70-1336 interface used with the XTR3.exe gives a "unable to send
                          command to radio" error, and the radio display flashes E8 and three
                          error tones.
                          The 70-1309 interface used with the XTR3.exe gives a "unable to send
                          command to radio" error and the radio does not do anything in
                          response.
                          I have checked my cabling carefully, both at the 10pin header plug
                          and at the DB9, and checked my construction of the level converter
                          interface, including the polarities of the electrolytic caps.
                          I'm also using the software under Win98 and also the 'exit to DOS'
                          from Win98.
                          Is there anything that people can suggest what might help with this
                          problem?

                          that old software does not like new fast computers.
                          how fast is yours?,, maybe you have a slower one
                          to try on ?

                          Since most of these programs are older DOS programs, you may also need a
                          slower computer.

                          Am in need of four (4) power plugs with even a few inches of conductor. Or, the "Molex" part number for the plug. I believe all the 70-xxx series use the same plug?

                          The low power 30/40/50 watt Midlands use a 9 pin molex available at any well stocked Radio Shack. The high power connectors are only available through Newark.

                          xtr software needs to be run in DOS MODE , this is because it needs more resources than the average windows system . I run xtr software on my AMD K6 2 500 with excellent results in DOS mode. the commands aren't too hard to learn, just look in an old dos user manual if you have one.
                          i am not sure which copy i have ,but i think i uploaded it to the files section months ago.

                          No you can't - a DOS program that uses the serial port when running in
                          a DOS window has to communicate with the Windows I/O drivers to get
                          to the serial port hardware.

                          The older Motorola RSS was written pre-windows and uses serial
                          routines that expects to see the serial port hardware directly and
                          totally looses it's mind if it can't see it.

                          Rather than runs the risk of turning a $3000 or more radio into a
                          paperweight most folks just keep an old 386 that runs DOS 3.3
                          in a corner just for programming radios.  In fact I've been collecting
                          older 386s, refurbishing them and selling them to folks that want
                          a radio programming computer.

                          Not that familiar with Midland radios and software - products from
                          the little M may not be as critical.

                          --- Mike Morris WA6ILQ <wa6ilq@... you can't - a DOS program that uses the serial
                          You need to qualify that a LOT more. NT, XP etc have a
                          "Hardware Application Layer" (HAL) which intervenes
                          between user programs and I/O ports. Win9X DOES NOT.
                          It allows the same direct prog-port access for RSS
                          software that pure DOS provides.

                          All these RSS routines that I use - Midland XTR, Moto
                          GP300, Philips/Simoco PRM80 and heaps of others - are
                          quite well behaved in a DOS box under 98SE.


                          The Midland XTR software doesn't have any problem in a
                          DOS box under non-HAL versions of Windoze. It
                          certainly doesn't require any more resources than
                          average *DOS* programs, or any more than a 9X DOS box
                          provides.

                          I am still trying to determine where many of these
                          urban myths arose.

                          not always, most windows pcs use way too many resources and the software sometimes needs more resources than is available. if you either use a dos boot disk or press the F8 key when booting the system, if you are doing it right you will get a numbered menu. from that menu you choose COMMAND PROMPT and hit the enter key. then it is only a matter of changing to the directory where the software is and run the XTR.EXE file
                           
                          EG- cd\midland\xtr and hit enter,this will get you into the directory where the software is.
                          next type XTR as in XTR.EXE and press enter.
                          this is only an example of haw you can make it work in dos mode. of course you might have to make a special directory in the c drive

                          yes you can all you need to do is tell the program which serial port you are using , you do this in the setup section of the program

                          Your best bet is to run DOS programs in a pure DOS environment. Windows likes
                          to be in control and can screw things up that are run in a DOS window. Some
                          people have luck but I wouldn't take the chance of making my radio a
                          paperweight.

                          Case in point, in a DOS window, my Kenwood TK860 would get about half way
                          through reading and would give me the dreaded "check radio connection" error.
                          Booting directly into DOS cured the problem. (it's a 550 MHz Windows ME machine)

                          Some of the older Motorola programs will not even run on the faster machines.
                          (they give a "divide by 0 error") My programming computer is an IBM XT
                          running at 7 megs. (Besides it gives me enough time to brew a cup of coffee, feed
                          the cat and read the mail while waiting for it to boot up.)

                          hi
                          all this talk about dos this and dos that
                          let take a look back.

                          who made the programmer to program this
                          radio ??

                          may be it is a hardware probum ??

                          who ever start all this can you plz tell us
                          about the programmer and whare it come`s from

                          environment. And has ran just fine way way before

                          Hi Rob,
                          As this threads originator, here are my problems, listed verbosely:
                          I have two UHF 480 to 512 MHz band Midland 70-1530D two way radio
                          units. They are in Australia.
                          I believe this model is commonly called "XTR" but I can not verify
                          or confirm this in any way.
                          Can someone please verify the above fact for me?

                          Next, I have built two interfaces myself, from brand new components.
                          The first design was built from the following:
                          http://f3.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/sDPrP-JEdI-
                          lR_zyvsT5Svei8f9YqdW4Hh_LNuQwvELZNTUJUddtapP04AjMNznXOo9Fa2tt9rNCjvoi
                          w2BhEbw1FEkD6AE/Midland_70-1308.pdf
                          The second design, which is similar, was built from this:
                          http://f2.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/sDPrP9-0qmalR_zyH34faXP4C4x2o2Rm0RfrH-
                          wmSbJF6mKL5uypXpW_KDtN8Iy92UbzcFqs48exybmzBHXdUAU-er_jMoE/70-1336%
                          20prog%20schematic.GIF

                          That is to say, I have built two seperate interfaces, from those
                          pictured in the files area of this very forum.
                          I am an experienced electronics experimenter and telecommunications
                          professional with over 15 years experience, so I know how
                          electronics work, the basics of DIY circuit construction, correct
                          soldering techniques, checking polarities of electrolytic capacitors
                          according to the circuit diagram & symbology etc etc. I have
                          checked the circuitry and have verified that the circuits have been
                          built as per the diagrams, and have checked that everything is
                          correct as per instruction. It is good.

                          Yet, when I try to use the following software to communicate with
                          the radio units:
                          http://f3.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/sDPrP10E_PKlR_zywbe0jseNo5rcisHggGe3X3dm
                          ocMv3Jul0EfwhQNSvdOk4qI4geAQ1QmnelKjpW9xiZupmip75kaURFs/XTRV3.zip

                          I get an error of "could not send command to radio" from the PC
                          using the first interface, and the radio does not do anything.
                          I get the same error using the second interface, but this time the
                          radio flashes "E8" on the display while attempting to communicate
                          with it.

                          Having had similar problems with other radios (Philips PRM80 series)
                          I know that some programs like to be used in DOS, which is why I
                          mentioned that I had attempted to run the software under Win98 and
                          with DOS 7.0 (ie exit to DOS from Win98). Similarly, I am using a
                          relatively slow PC Pentium 100 laptop with COM1 only, as I know too
                          fast a PC can cause problems, as can using anything other than COM1.

                          What I am asking is for assistance to verify that the above
                          interfaces and software are meant for the 70-1530D, and if so, what
                          else could I be doing wrong that is preventing my communicating with
                          the radio, bearing in mind all the other information that I have
                          given.

                          Can anyone help me in this quest?
                          Ta - Jason

                          well rusty if that is true
                          then i most be doing i wrong.
                          i have built two programmers out of the
                          max232 chip and have
                          use a DOS PROMP in win98 on a AMD 500mzh
                          comuputer... a labtop 166... and a IBM 200mhz
                          computer with absolutely no err and got it program
                          the first shoot
                          i have try my AMD 1.6G computer
                          and yes it did fail to run right
                          with diffrent err each time in windows
                          and dos boot ibm dos !!!!.now thats old.

                          so xtr software can be run in windows dos promp
                          it just depends on what computer you are uesing
                          i would think

                          but at the same time i have see diffrent radios
                          of the same model,on these same
                          computers in windows actup but still got
                          program on second or third try

                          so i see no pount in fighting
                          over who is right,on this dos issue.
                          bot just share what we know or have try.

                          Rob,
                          I have been working on 2-way radios since
                          I got out of the navy in 1970.
                          ( FCC 1st class with all the endorsement)
                          The problem you young guys is that you know all
                          the answers, You just don't know the damn questions.

                          Have it your way, you are on your own pal.

                          if the xtr program won't run properly  under windozzz wh using winme or later try typing mem/c in a dos window to see how much resources your machine is using, quite often it will use up enough resources so that the software won't run 100% correctly. if you use winme you can still get into dos mode, you do it by creating a bootable floppydisk.
                          the main difference is that you will need to change drives from drive A to the drive that the software is on , its done by typing C: and pressing the enter key. c: as in C drive, this is usually the boot drive on your system. if your system is running windows2000, windows NT or windows XP and the partitions are not fat 16,fat 32, or even earlier version of the fat system (File Allocation Table) a good idea is to put your software onto the boot floppy , this is because a dos system will not recognise an NTFS partition , the boot floppy is also useful as it wont load anything other than what is needed to start the computer, please note - don't just create a startup disk as it will load a heap of other gear that you won't need. to make a dos boot disk you go into my computer and right click on the a drive icon and from the menu select format. next you need to make sure that the full format option is selected and the copy system files box is checked (make sure you use a new floppy disk), then click start. when it is finished you should see some files on the disk( command.com etc) next you copy the software onto your bootable floppy( everything should fit on disk) and then you will be able to use just about any IBM or IBM clone to program your radio.
                           
                          for those who say that some software won't run on a fast machine i agree with you , as i have an old DATA I\O series22 eprom programmer ( circa 1985 ) in which the interface software will not run on anything faster than a pentium pro 200.
                           
                          but the midland XTR software will happily run on a AMD K6 2 500 ( 500mhz ) with no problems ( booted up in pure dos mode ) . i have also sometimes needed to hold down the monitor button while turning the set on , this seems to help me get a reliable read an write on my 70-1630b and on another 70-1530b as well. when i built the programmer i constructed it so that it got its power from the radio itself, the has worked to great success and i saved myself the cost of a plugpack

                          Gentlemen,

                          I have been reading the "it works for me" / "well, it doesn't work for me"
                          discussion. You may both be right. Depending on the individual machine and
                          the way its BIOS, keyboard controller, and device drivers are written, you
                          may successfully download on one machine in a DOS box, while another machine
                          may require that you boot it in DOS. Even identical machines may perform
                          differently, depending on the version and patch level of Windows, and what
                          DLLs have been loaded by the installation of application software.

                          Case in point: I use DOS software (Filelink, came with NWDOS) to transfer
                          files from one machine to another. This software seems susceptible to timing
                          jitter. On some laptops, it works well with the serial port in a DOS box. On
                          others laptops, it is faster and more reliable to boot to a DOS prompt,
                          perform the file transfer, then restart Windows.

                          Another example: I use my Toshiba Satellite 460 to download firmware to
                          embedded systems using a DOS application. On this machine, the download
                          proceeds faster when running in a DOS box, if I hold the Ctrl, Alt, or Shift
                          key. If I ditch the GUI and reboot to a DOS prompt, the download proceeds at
                          full speed. Go figure.

                          In addition to, or instead of, holding one of the keys I listed, you can try
                          switching the DOS box from windowed to full-screen display (Alt+Enter does
                          this). There are also several parameters which can be edited in dosprmpt.pif
                          to control the timeslicing -- I have never taken the time to understand them
                          well, so I can't explain them; I just know that they are there.

                          The most reliable hardware for the job is probably a 386-or-earlier desktop,
                          but they are probably hard to find even in secondhand stores. (No, you can't
                          have mine.)

                          Can we stop the holy warfare and get back to discussing radios?

                          Happy holidays to all,

                          when i suggested bootting into dos, i ment boot into msdos, this is the one i use with good success. as for the other versions of dos i have no idea. but you are entirely correct this is not a computer forum but a radio forum lol

                          The Midland 70-245B uses the 70-1045 programmer which is no longer available from Midland. It is a stand alone programmer that also can be connected to a computer and program the radio with software.

                          I have come across a source for 70-1526A radios (UHF, 403..430 split).
                          Was considering picking up a couple for use as repeater link
                          transmitters. Any comments on their suitability as a link transmitter?
                          Are they suitable for operation at high duty cycles? Can the power
                          output be reduced to help them survive?

                          Will these radios operate in the 440..450 MHz region, so that they are
                          usable for general purposes in the amateur 440 band? I have read here
                          that the 70-1526B (450..470 split) works OK on 440, but have seen no
                          comments on the -A version.

                          Any advice would be appreciated.

                          Hi. I was wondering if the 70-1000 is an eprom programmer where the
                          eprom must be removed from the radio in order to program it or if the
                          programmer hooks to the mic jack on the radio? Does anyone know
                          where I could get a programmer? Also, which other programmer does
                          midland make for the syntech 3 and xtr radios and where could I get
                          that from? Thanks.

                          I have a homebrew programming interface and  the necessary software but no manual or procedure to follow. What special steps, if any, do I need to follow to get the radio and the PC to synch up?

                          The Midland XTR and Syntech 2 use a computer based program and requires only software and
                          programming cable.  Just the plain Syntech requires the 1000 series propritary progammer to program
                          the take out prom module.

                          The 70-0351 is a XTR model and requires a software based program and the proper programming cable.

                          I have just purchased a Midland 70-1630(A) programmed for 70CM. I am
                          trying to gather as much information on this radio as I can.

                          Are their any web sites that someone can recommend? Has anyone had
                          good/bad experiences with this model? I am just after information in
                          general.

                          Your assistance is much appreciated!

                                  The 70-0351C is a XTR 42-50MHz I believe
                           the transmit wattage is 50 - 60 watts. It uses the XTR software and cable or the 70-1080 programmer.

                          Does the radio need to placed into a 'programming mode' by any of the switch positions on the front panel, or (assuming everything is working correctly) will the software be able to query the radio's configuration just by having the programming cable attached?
                           
                          Thanks in advance.

                          Dave,

                          This radio is known as the Syntech model and requires a 70-1000 Midland propritary programmer.  There  was a recent software programmer developed in Australia which the Ausies called a 1000C which used and interface box that would attach to a computer.  You would remove the prom module just like you  do for the Midland Co programmer but all of the programming was done via the computer.  These Australlian boxes showed up on Ebay a couple years ago for about $300.

                          Look in the files section ,There should be a circuit for the xtr radio that i uploaded a while ago . it will a bitmap file. I have used this circuit to build a working programmer to successfully program a 70-1630b and a 70-1530b. i used the XTR software after modifying the .chn file so i could program a non-standard frequency spread.
                          EG- 70cm and police rx or uhf cb and police rx.

                          my friend has a 1530b that was only 22 channels when he bought it. the fellow he got it from had a eeprom module for a 99 channel vhf model that wh used in the uhf model . we reprogrammed it with the appropriate frequencies and everything went well. so as long as you can find a 99 channel  eeprom module to suit the xtr series you will be able to expand to 99 channels.

                          Hi. I'm wondering what error code 98 means on a Syntech I. I know
                          what 90 and 95 mean, but I've never seen 98.

                          thanks for all the great info so far. im now wanting to know if
                          this radio can be modified and/or programmed to receive out of band.
                          currently 42mhz - 50mhz.....would like to make it 37mhz - 50mhz,
                          with the 37mhz - 41.99mhz being recieve only.

                          thanks

                          You can BUT the radio will not do 37-50 MHz..it is rated at 8 MHz
                          max...I have found it MAY do 9 or 10 IF you are lucky...but 37-50? I
                          doubt it...you want the 70-0500CWB Wideband Syntech II model...that
                          covers 37-50.
                          Yes, the XTR can be programmed above 50 or below 42...in fact any
                          STII/XTR can be PROGRAMMED out of band...whether the VCOs/front end will
                          work is another matter.
                          If you have the 70-1080A programmer, you have to edit certain addresses
                          in the MANUAL mode....
                          In the XTR or Syntech II software, the CHL file has the upper and lower
                          limits for each range...you can open it with any ASCII editor...
                          and merely change the limit and then save the file..the software will
                          then allow direct entry of the new freqs...

                          If the radio is used outside 42-50, the VCOs must be retuned...above 50
                          MHz, the front end must be as well....it DOES not make full spec above
                          52.5 MHz...due to LP filtering in the XMTR and roll off in the rcvr.

                          Below 42.0 you're on your own.

                          Hello,
                          I am a ham in north central Indiana (South Bend / Notre Dame 10 minutes
                          East of me). We have a kind of group of hams forming for no real purpose
                          other than we are always on the same repeater at about the same time
                          everyday we have some coordinated frequencies ( 2 pairs 440 1 pair 2
                          meter and 1 pair 6 meter) in our local area and we are in the process of
                          building up repeaters for these pairs.
                          The abundance of low cost midland equipment on ebay led me to do some
                          research and find that in general the midland stuff is regarded as pretty
                          much indestructible. There is a couple small problems that I have found
                          There is not a lot of information on the web about mods or out of band
                          ability and finding someone that can program these for a reasonable fee.
                          The first 440 repeater will be on air this week using an icom for the
                          receiver and a syntech as the transmitter.
                          I have equipped it with additional forced air cooling ( ok I tie wrapped
                          a pair of fans to the heat sink but it just doesn't sound as technically
                          correct to say that :-) and backed off the output power to about 60% I am
                          going to see how well it works out. If we like the results the second
                          will most likely be the same kind of setup for the time being.
                          So I will be here watching the list most of the time and If I have a
                          question I'll ask John KB9OVB

                                  You can put a jumper or a hang up box between pin 2 and 3 either on the head or on the trunk unit to turn off the monitor. You can also use pins 4 and 6 if you want to connect a speaker to the trunk unit.

                          Hello
                          Looking into building a RIB for the "XTR"..............Is the MAX 232 chip a MAXIUM (Dallas). Which one do I use? They list quite a few on their site.

                          The MAX 232 seems to be the favored device for the RIB, so it seems.

                          Thanks for any clarifacation.

                          Save yourself some money and order an ST232 from Mouser. Same device but
                          about $4 cheaper than the Maxim part

                          I asked about this a little while back in the radio programming group...
                          Allen uses a  LT1081CN from Linear Technologies.
                          I used a TC232CPE from TelCom Semiconductor.
                          There is the MAX232 and I can't recall who answered my specific question about using the DS275 but
                          I discovered it at this link  http://www.kmitl.ac.th/~kswichit/MAX232/MAX232.htm It does not need the capacitors....
                           
                          So you have several choices, I am going to pick up a DS275 and try it out just for grins... I bread boarded the TC232CPE and
                          that is still what I am using.... The DS275 will simplify the circuit and make it possible to fit it in the DB9 connector shell....
                          BTW.. I made a KPG4 interface for my Kenwood TK-809.... Only midland I have is an old syntech that I use my 70-1000c for....
                           
                          Have fun....

                          I just found out from Midland technical support that Midland has a
                          Windows version of the XTR - Syntech II software: 70-1488W-CD . Has
                          any one tried this software yet? It cost $100.00 and I can't justify
                          spending that for the convenience of using just one computer but I am
                          curious as to how friendly it is.

                          Lucky you!! The owner of a 70-1000! I must have bought one (and the software), with the amount I have shelled out this past year on programming on my Syntec1 radios.

                          Are these (70-1000) plentiful nowdays?

                          Hello
                          Have a 70-482B (trunk mount). Am in doubt if it has a CTCSS board installed.
                          Most of my other radios have the 70-2102 (with wire loom connecting to the Z-273 board). They all work fine with "PL" encode/decode.

                          However, the 70-482B has a full width board (70-2151) with a daughter board attached(70-07013) in place of the tone board I am familiar with. What are these boards?

                          Also , under the corner of the Z-273 board, soldered to the main board is a small board (70-070133). What is this ? Have not seen it in any of my other Syntecs.

                          Can anyone with a manual help me out? I just want to get normal "PL" in the radio.

                          Thank you

                          here is the link to xtr software
                          http://www.cqham.ru/ftp/dw.php?midlandx.zip

                          if you have a 8ch radio just use normal band
                          radio you can program more then 8ch but one digit on
                          radio face!"22 in all,it just will rollover from 0 to
                          1
                          then stop`s at 2 to make all 22ch.

                          you can use notpad.exe to chang the xtr.chi file in
                          the xtr software folder.
                          you can go out of band then just look for the band you
                          need and chang the pramaters.

                          *VHF(L)A
                          297
                          360
                          *VHF(L)B
                          360 can chang from 360-420 to say 350-430
                          and save file,the software will program
                          the radio now out of band, hope vco will
                          420 work!!
                          *VHF(L)C
                          420
                          500
                          *VHF(M)A
                          660

                          70-2151/2152 are 2 tone decoders, not PL decoders. The associated board is probably the horn honk accessory to activate the vehicle's horn when toned out.
                           
                          The other board mounted under the Z273 is the direct (talk around) option. The head or faceplate will have a "direct" button in place of the scan button. But in order to work, there must be a jumper from that board connected to the Z273 prom. Without the jumper, no talk around. It also requires a different heading in the prom for the direct option. I recall the header was a Z273-7A heading. Don't quote me on that though.
                           
                          Some earlier versions of the Syntech 1 series had a wideband option kit also installed in the same location of the direct option board.It was a much smaller board than the talk around option board.

                          You can get the pins from digi key (http://www.digikey.com)
                          or a whole now power cord for about 15 bucks.

                          If the pins are 0.093 crimp terminals, I have some male pins or radio shack Number 274-229.  They also have the connector for the radio but don't have the number.
                           
                          good luck, Herman

                          Radio Shack part number 274-229  9 conductor male molded nylon connector with .093 crimp terminals. For the low power Midlands. The package was somewhere around $1.99 or so.
                          All you need to do is cut off the side lock wings to clean it up a bit.
                           
                          You will only find it at a larger store, the smaller mall type store no longer carries parts. My local large store stocks 12 of these normally and will reorder as they deplete the stock. It should also be available from the catalog if not locally stocked in a rural store.

                          Thanks for all the good information. Am in process of trying to find a "PL" board, and the associated harness to the Z-273 board.

                          Need to find out how many channels a Midland 70-1544B has.
                           
                          It is a UHF, 30 watt front mount.

                          The harness to the Z273 prom is part of the PL board. If you locate the a PL board, 70-2102 A,B, or C, it is attached to it. There are 3 harnesses on the board and one open molex that accepts the harness from the faceplate. I did see a couple of PL boards on Ebay a few days ago, don't know the status currently.

                          Hey Herman-
                           
                          I show a 1530 is a 22 channel 30 watt dash mount and the standard option panel number 2144-1 is a 99 channel/scan kit. Only guessing that the 1544 is a 1530 with that option kit.
                           
                          There are 9 option kits 70-2144 1-9. All are 22 channel except #1 #2,#5,#7 & #9.
                           
                          But my answer direct to you is probably more accurate..........

                          The radio shack connector will work for most of the Midlands but the 70-1336 and the 70-1526 uses a different connector with little square contacts. The power cable contact is a Molex 39-00-0078. You can probably get these from Digikey, www.digikey.com . If you find that contact you should be able to get the mating contact from their listings.

                          The Syntech 1 and the XTR cables are the same. Some of the pins that are not normally used have different functions. Pins 2&3 are for switching the monitor, pins 4,5,&6 are for speaker configurations, and the power leads are the same. It is the same part number for both from Midland.

                          I manufacture a interface that will let you program the XTR,
                          SyntechII AND THE BANTAM SERIES radios (70-1337 and others) with one
                          cable. Contact me via e-mail if interested. I also have copies of
                          the 70-1310PC software

                          you can find a link to the software and a jpg on how
                          to build one if you look in the files
                          look at the max232 inteface

                          Hello
                          What is the difference between the "1" AND "11" models. Sure look the same externally.
                          Is the next model produced the "XTR"?
                           
                          Thanks a bunch.

                          The Syntech I and II do NOT look alike, Tim.....there are some noted
                          differences..the ST II has the programming plug on it, the STI does not.
                          The heads are different in look; the STI has BLUE pushbuttons with the
                          yellow LEDs above them and the early STI heads had GREEN LED
                          readouts..later changed(UGH) to hi intensity Reds! The STII buttons are
                          clear and the readouts are RED except on the LCD deluxe head!

                          The STIs are 80 channels, the STIIs are 320 channels and wider bandwidth
                          on all ranges (ex lowband STI has 2 MHz of b/w, the STII has 8 MHx of
                          b/w). STI programs using the Z273 EPROM board which must be erased for
                          ANY change....STII is EEPROM and can be reprogrammed on the fly....(so
                          can the XTR)...model numbers for the STI models are of the format:
                          70-xxx(L) with (L) being A,B or C for freq range (ex: 70-530C) while the
                          STII are 4 numbers [70-xxxx(L)] and one lowband model having CWB after
                          the numbers as in 70-0500CWB (stands for C range, WideBand....37-50 MHz
                          instead of 42-50)

                          Also the combo model number tells you what control is used...but the
                          basic model number is always shown on the RF deck (70-0571C is a lowband
                          100 watt STII with the small under dash control head....but the radio
                          itself will have 70-0500 or 70-0570 on it..it does NOT show the head
                          since that can change)

                          The XTR was actually the model produced for Syntech I users to upgrade
                          to next. 22 channels (99 optional) and has the same operation as the
                          STI..and lower priced than the STIIs. (Much like the GE MASTR EXEC IIs
                          were to the MASTR IIs). You cannot get the mobile rptr option with the
                          XTR (you can get the store and forward Voice simplex rptr option though)
                          The XTRs are usually of the format 70-1xxx(L) on the model numbers.

                          The STIs were made in the early 1980s.....the XTR/STII came out in very
                          late 80s/early 90s. The MICs and power cables are about the only thing
                          you can swap between them :)

                          One minor correction...a XTR lowband will be a 70-03xx model but the V
                          and Us are normally a 70-1xxx model

                          Just thought this may be of interestto you.

                          The latest of the midland models is the Bantam and Titan models. The
                          Bantam radios are the smallest, the size of a motorola sm50 and
                          M1225. It is programmed through the Mic connector with the 70-1309
                          programmer that connects to the pc serial port.

                          The Titan model are their current production models. Their is also
                          the Securicor radios, which are Titans that were manufactured during
                          the time Midland was owned by Securicor. It is my understanding that
                          Securicor purchased Midland because the Fcc would not let Midland
                          sell its 220 Mhz spectrum which they had aguired at Fcc auction.
                          Securicor seems to focus on 220 Mhz equipment, so they purchased
                          Midland, aquired the ownership of the 220Mhz spectrum, then sold the
                          remaining acquzition back to Midland. Therefore you will see the
                          Securicor name on some of the Titan Radios. This just my
                          understanding, and I would welcome any clarification or correction on
                          the previous statements.

                          Another question, my radio team has some 70-1526 UHF mobiles, and I was wondering if anyone ever built portable repeaters out of them or have any advice if I wanted to.

                                  If you take the board out you will loose you receiver audio unless you put a jumper back in to the jack in the same compartment with the tone board.
                          I don't remember which pins need jumping.

                          i had Syntech1 70-530 that was program for 462 and
                          467.
                          it would tx on 462 but not on 467 it show a 45 flash
                          and beep two or three time`s

                          it was thwe vco it would not luck
                          the radio was tune in the low 450 befor.

                          anyhow it was re-tune and it was fine after that.

                          thats all in know.

                          Is it possible to connect a cable between two 70-245's to clone them,
                          or is it necessary to use an external device (programmer or PC)?

                          Thanks!

                          Yes...a clone cable can do exactly that. No need for a programmer IF you
                          want to clone only.

                          Super!

                          I've got about half a dozen of these radios. I wouldn't mind going to the
                          radio shop and having one re-programmed if I could clone the rest.

                          Does anyone have a schematic of such a cable for this radio?

                          Chris, are you sure you don't have the 245 confused with the 254?
                          The 245 programming port goes right to the 93C46 EEProm data
                          lines.. The programming cable would have to be an active one..
                          Some day, I want to hook my 93C46 EEprom prg'er to the 245
                          program port to see if I can read/write to the EEprom ..

                          Actually I was looking at the wrong section in my Midland Dealer book :(
                          The cloning cable was for a different radio...not the 245 OR the 254...
                          But I am sure I saw in the programming info I got at the training class
                          (15+ years ago) that the 245 could clone from one to another...in fact,
                          I seem to recall I HAVE done it....and I think it uses the same cable
                          that connects to the 70-1045 programmer...let me go dig through my 245
                          info again....

                          Oh OK, So it works inconjunction with a 70-1045??? And not just a cable
                          by itself.. Sorry, if I read more into it..

                          It uses NO outboard caps, as the 232 does. All I remember is that it has a "7" in the part number.(It too, is a Dallas chip) Without those outboard caps, sure could squeeze into a DB-25 connector!.

                          Save yourself some money and order an ST232 from Mouser. Same device but
                          about $4 cheaper than the Maxim part

                          Looking into building a RIB for the "XTR"..............Is the MAX 232
                          chip a MAXIUM (Dallas). Which one do I use? They list quite a few on
                          their site. The MAX 232 seems to be the favored device for the RIB, so
                          it seems.

                          Thanks for any clarifacation.

                          And another one (I take it you do NOT keep archives or old messages):

                          =================================================
                          I asked about this a little while back in the radio programming group...
                          Allen uses a LT1081CN from Linear Technologies.
                          I used a TC232CPE from TelCom Semiconductor.
                          There is the MAX232 and I can't recall who answered my specific question
                          about using the DS275 but
                          I discovered it at this link
                          http://www.kmitl.ac.th/~kswichit/MAX232/MAX232.htm It does not need the
                          capacitors....

                          So you have several choices, I am going to pick up a DS275 and try it
                          out just for grins... I bread boarded the TC232CPE and
                          that is still what I am using.... The DS275 will simplify the circuit
                          and make it possible to fit it in the DB9 connector shell....
                          BTW.. I made a KPG4 interface for my Kenwood TK-809.... Only midland I
                          have is an old syntech that I use my 70-1000c for....

                          Have fun....

                          <---Chris.. the ST232 is a direct replacement for the MAX232 but it does
                          require external caps. I think he's looking for the version that requires
                          NO external caps..

                          Hi. Can anyone give me a brief instruction on aligning the RX and TX
                          of a 70-526BXL? I don't have a service manual for this model yet,
                          and I've got a couple that were in the mid 460 range; the VCO won't
                          lock even on 449.xxx frequencies.

                          Or...if someone has the service manual for this model and wouldn't
                          mind making photocopies of the relevant pages, I'd gladly pay for
                          your time, trouble, and copying costs.

                          Thanks,

                          hi all

                          i have made a diagram of a syn1 6 pin bace mic pinouts to ptt and
                          have put in to midlandlmr file`s

                          can anyone download and re-save as bmp.file and chang it to show how
                          to hook it up
                          to a 4 pin xtr radio

                          i know that the xtr has power on the same wire as mic line.
                          but would i have to supply ex power for bace mic on nother line
                          by modfying the radio pinouts ?

                          Hi Rob,
                                  To connect the base mic to the XTR you need a k-13 or a K-33 (I believe these are the correct numbers)  6pin base mic jack kit installed which supplies the 12 volts to the microphone and the monitor function also.

                          richard
                          i dont care about the monitor function on the mic
                          and maybe you like to buy things but i dont
                          thare has to be a nother way.
                          i could just put 12v on one of the pins,from in side
                          the radio.
                          im just trying to find out if i could tie to gether
                          the
                          powerline on the mic with the audio line

                          the audio line on a xtr has power so why cant i just
                          tie in to that .

                          thank you for telling me about k-13 /k33
                          can i get that at radioshack ????

                          Hi. I'm looking for a source for the power connectors for use with
                          the high-power Midland Syntech models...like the 565/665B, 052A, etc.
                          It is the larger 9-pin plug. I haven't had any luck locating the pin
                          and plug parts on mouser.com or other similar sources.

                          Anyone know where they can be bought?

                          Thanks,

                          You gotta buy at least 50 of the connectors and 200 of the pins as an opening order.
                           
                          Been there, passed on the minimum order requirement......the connector is not a Molex, has another name at the larger size. Tried to find the part numbers again, but I discarded the list.
                          They have an 800 number, call and ask for a catalog. Dale W6PWY found them by looking at pictures and specs. You might be able to request a catalog at their web page.

                          But the minimum order was 50 pieces for the connector, 200 for the pins. Prices quoted were early 2003 from what I recall, but then again, I didn't remember where I hid the part numbers either.
                           
                          So Herman, if you want to make the BIG order and sell some to others, here you go.

                          Try an Ace Hardware store...they usually have the larger size Molex
                          connectors in stock....also you can order online from Mouser or
                          Digikey...and Jameco I think also carries them.

                          Can the 70-2700 DTMF board can be used in the 70-166-32A radio (with
                          display and keypad). The 2700 is DTMF only and is specified for 70-
                          165/265 radios. .

                          The recommended DTMF(with ANI) board for 70-166 is the 70-2746.
                          The 2746 is also specified for 70-045 48 channel models. This is a
                          DTMF/ANI board (that I don't have).

                          Is it possible to use the 70-2700 a DTMF board in the 70-166-32A
                          The 70-2700 is instructions indicate that it is intended for the 70-
                          165/265-16 series radio. (I have some of the 70-2700's)

                          The pinouts of the sockets that take these boards on the 165 as well
                          as the 166 radios are identical. The 70-2700 comes with a
                          surface mount diode, but the instructions do not describe where to
                          put it.

                          I did try to put the 70-2700 in a 70-166-32A but it does not
                          generate tones. Should the diode be soldered somewhere to tell the
                          radio to use the DTMF board? Is there a resistor that needs to be
                          removed?

                          If anyone has the answer..... or better yet has some 70-2746 boards
                          or even just the installation instructions for the 70-2746, I would
                          appreciate hearing from you.

                          FYI, I have lots of 70-2711 CTCSS boards if anyone is interested.

                          I'm experiencing a rather interesting problem on a syntech I dash
                          mount unit. If I power it up and open the squelch, everything looks
                          good. However, if I leave the squelch blowing for about 10 seconds,
                          all of a sudden the volume level of the blowing squelch is decreased
                          dramatically, and it makes a strange crackling noise instead of the
                          regular sound you hear with the squelch open.

                          I've switched faceplates on it with a spare to see if it was perhaps
                          a bad speaker in the faceplate, but no...same problem. Even if I
                          don't open the squelch, if I listen to it while transmitting from
                          another radio, it receives fine for about 10 seconds, and then kind
                          of dies out as described above. Have to turn the volume knob all the
                          way up, just to hear a barely-perceptible level of audio.

                          Has anyone ever experienced this before? It's new to me...

                          Sounds like a dying audio amp. Could be that as it makes power it heats up
                          and goes non-linear. This is pretty common in bad audio amplifiers, not
                          just Midland or other 2-way audio stages..

                          I found a good source, I think, for these. Digikey

                          the plug housing, is a Tyco/AMP p/n 1-480673-0
                          Digikey p/n A25472-ND, 10 piece minimum, $0.922 @

                          the pin, is a Tyco/AMP p/n 350391-1
                          Digikey p/n A25460-ND, $2.27 for 10 pins

                          Digikey does have a $25 minimum order, or a $5 handling charge is
                          added.

                          I was looking for some of these also, and the other replies pointed
                          me in the right direction. Thanks all.

                          Looks like you folks pretty much have the connector part numbers under
                          control. The only thing I might add is the part number for the 14/20 AWG
                          pin: 350389-1

                          350391-1 is the part number for the 10/14 AWG pin.

                          Looking for schematic of RIB, using the Dallas DS 725, instead of the MAX232. The 275 does not require any outboard 10mf caps. Have seen one schematic, but I was not clear on the outputs to the radio. It showed a "TxD" and "RxD". I thought the "XTR" required more connections on the 10 pin plug?
                           
                          Thanks for any information.

                          i have never try ds275 but i prutty share this how you woul do it

                          I just uploaded the spec sheet for the Dallas DS275 chip into the
                          files section. Look on page 4 fig 2 for hookup diagram. Pin 7 is
                          RS232 into the chip from computer and pin 5 is RS232 out of chip to
                          computer. Pin 1 is TTL output to radio and pin 3 is TTL input from
                          radio.

                          Just received two of these in the mail and plan to try them out soon.

                          Thanks all for the feedback re. the Dallas D275. I ordered some, and got the surface mount chip.....do they come in the "regular" size DIP, like the MAX232?? My eyes aren't that good to attempt any soldering on that small of package!
                           
                          Thanks!

                          Yes, they do come in the DIP configuration, that's what mine are. The plain
                          DS275 is the 8 pin dual inline package, the DS275S is the surface mount. Don't
                          throw them away. I'll take them off your hands.

                          The subject line is saying DS725, but if you mean DS275, I found mine at
                          Digikey.

                          Hello list
                           
                          Sorry I transposed the numbers! I meant D-275. They are available from Dallas, after you register on their web site. You can ask for many "samples", included are the MAX-232, D-275, which are of interest for those wanting to build a "RIB" used in programming the Midland "xtr" series radio.
                           
                          If anyone has built a working "RIB", using the D-275N, I would be interested in a schematic.
                          I have one schematic, but am unclear about the amount of lines to the plug at the "radio" end. The one I have only shows a TxD and an RxD. Aren't there more "wires" going to the "radio" plug (xtr)?
                           
                          From what I understand, the D-275 as compared to the MAX232, does not require the 10mf elect. caps, therefore allowing it to be placed inside a connector quite easily!

                          dont hold me to it but 274-151 is imbedded in my
                          mind for some reason.

                          Let me know it you find it.

                          I have no experience programming midland radios so i am wondering if all i need is the XTRV3 software and the 70-1308 interface cable? or do i need to built or perchase a programmer to go between PC and radio?
                          Also, i need the service manual in electronic format for this unit.  It doesn't seem to be in the files section for this list.
                          If anyone could please let me know about programming and send me the manual it would be much appreciated.

                          Hello
                          It appears that the 1308B is a "RIB" type programming cable. Was going to build the 1308, using the MAX232 chip, but am now interested in finding out more info on the 1308B.
                           
                          With more"electronics" in the "box", does it have more features than the 1308 "interface cable"?
                           
                          Thank You

                          There is a schematic for the 70-1308 cable in the files section of the MidlandLMR group.  There is a little circuit board inside the "D" connector. The retail price of an official Midland cable is just under $100. I checked the price for a customer recently.

                            As a Midland dealer I would NEVER put in to the hands
                            of a customer the XTR program or the cable to program
                            any radio. I have seen what has happen when one dealer
                            (no longer in the 2 way business) did. I wish the FCC
                            still had that rule that stated that ONLY a licensed
                            FCC radio tech could program a radio under part 90.

                            I rest my case.

                                Hello
                            My question regarding these Midland programming cables is straight forward. I just want info on the 70-1308B! (BTW...........It is being used by a holder of a "General Radiotelephone w/ Radar Endorsement")
                             
                            I have seen plenty of schematics for the 1308, but have never seen or read anything regarding the 70-1308B.

                            The 70-1309 is for the Bamtam models. It has a blue cable
                            with a RJ-45 for the mic jack.

                            About 1997or so there was a firefighter that programmed
                            some radio for his department. He screwed up
                            it got 2 firefighters killed one night fighting a fire
                            in a building. If I recall this was in Jackson county TN.
                            The county had to put out $5.7M..

                            just like the city of new york and motorola are being sued by the families of the fire fighters who were killed in the trade tower collapses on 911. 
                            Does this make sence? of course not since the repeaters for the public safety systems were located on the top of the collapsing structures.
                            the radios really have very little to do with the fact that the fire fighters were killed.  If they were depending on their radio equipment as their sol form of intelligence...well perhaps they need to find new trades....er, at least, they might have.
                            Im just saying that just because someone programs a radio and screws up, doesn't mean that the means of programming radios should be top secret or only availible to licensed technicians.  Even the oh so perfect radio technicians can screw up equipment.  Infact, programming radios is generally such a simple proceedure that it doesn't take a technician to do it...therefore, anyone with knolege of electronics of any kind can do it, and just as easily, the licensed technicians can  screw up too.
                            What if the problem hadn't been the person who programmed the radio, but had been a component malfunction, and the county still had to pay out the big bucks...and the radio company got sued, the end result is the same, people died because they depended too much upon something that isn't always stable enough to stake your life on.
                            Though the deaths of fire fighters in the line of duty is truely tragic, i think sometimes there is too much stock put into the communications equipment and its function in this kind of situation.
                            The department was obviously low budget if they needed a member to program their equipment for them....not to mention working on vhf/uhf freqs generally means the dep or county is working with low budgets in mind.
                            But naturally, the finger was pointed straight at the volunteer who decided to help by programming the unit/units for his department.
                            Why was the finger not pointed perhaps at the chief who's men it was that were killed? or at the sources of funding for not providing adequit cash flow for the dep to have their radios professionally programmed and updated?
                            you cant say that having access to camercial software and cables is a cause of death or reason to prohibit its use by non-company persons or non-certified technicians.
                             
                            just my two cents worth....

                            i have the manual for the ht but no info on this...and will trade for
                            any copy of software 70-1445 for the pc. thanks, hawke

                            hi thare

                            -the 1308 has a 10 pin plug with
                            sd
                            cd
                            cts
                            rts
                            gnd
                            5v

                            the 1309 has the same in/outs on it`s rj-45
                            so you could say it the same as 1308
                            just diffrent plug`s
                            for diffrent radio`s, same schemtic in interface box.

                            va2buz file is call 1308 but it is a 1309 for bantam series
                            but he show it is the same as xtr&xtrII.

                            we start out asking about the 1308b i have no clue what
                            this is but maybe it is a hand held programmer "no computer needed"

                            The 1308B is a cable with a "BOX". The radio end has the ten pin plug (not RJ-45).  It will program the "XTR" and SYNTEK 11 , and the "BANTAM" 8ch mobile.
                             
                            Just bought one with software for $70.00. (I still want to build a 1308 using The MAX232  and some 10uf caps and some inverter chips (I think 7400)
                             
                            Later on.........

                            Folks,
                            the 70-1308B is NOT a Midland BUILT interface...it is an AFTERMARKET
                            one...but built on the same schematics that the 1308A uses (and are on
                            the FILES area of this list!). BOTH the 70-1308A and 70-1308B have the
                            10pin plug for the XTR, SYNTECH II and 8 Channel mobiles but rather than
                            built in the DB25 connector like the 70-1308A, the 70-1308B has a PCB in
                            a small inline BOX...other than that, there should be NO difference!

                            The REAL Midland interface for the Titan radios is a different one...it
                            DOES use the RJ45 conenction but it is NOT a 70-1308B.

                            Again, the 70-1308B IS NOT A MIDLAND PRODUCT!! It IS an AFTERMARKET one
                            sold with the B designation so people think it IS made by Midland!

                            PERIOD..end of thread.

                            it has in the past on slow cpu like 133/200/amd500.
                            and i have try on my amd 1.6 ghz cpu in windows and it was no go it
                            would just crash.
                            i try it with a boot/sys floppy with xtr software on it
                            and i could not beleave it.
                            it work fine out of windows this way
                            on a fast computer.

                            look`s like im going to eat crow
                            i swar up and down it would not work on fast cpu but i was wrong.

                            Hello,

                            Anybody got any information on a MXP1088.1 board that fits an old
                            Syntech I (70-340B) radio?

                            Got a customer with a system of these things and they apparently
                            scramble or something. CTCSS tones out of the radio are not
                            necessarily what the programming chip would dictate.

                            MX Comm apparently made the board originally, but they've been
                            bought out and no longer have any information on it.

                            Any help would be appreciated. Looking for programming info and
                            diagrams.

                            Will the Syntech 2 and xtr scan the 80 or 99 or more channels or are
                            they scanned in groups of 16

                            Not sure about the XTR but the Syntech II has 320 channels and you can all
                            channels in a group or just a few in a group.

                            Groups in the STII and XTR are preset at programming....you MUST have at
                            least one channel in a group for the scan to work...you can put as many
                            of the channels in a group....on my STII on 6, I put all the -1Mhz
                            offsets in one group, -1.7MHz offsets in group 2 and ALL channels in
                            Group 3..
                            Syntech II is 320 channel capable...
                            XTR is 22 normally or 99 with the memory option in it..
                            (The older ST I series is 80 channel...00-79...when I worked at a two
                            way shop, we sold a bunch of them with 000 as the company CR channel and
                            1-5 local PD channels in them....6-10 other PD or FD, and had plenty
                            more for them....needless to say we had a lot of repeat customers :)

                            The XTR will scan up 99 channels.  No groups required.  Programming can be set for user to add and delete channels at will.

                            handhelds. Short of that, a schematic of them would help.

                            Electronic copy of the 132 manual to follow.  Please feel free to post it for the group... if you can figure out how..  
                             
                            Note that West Crystal in Canada has a pretty good price on crystals.

                            You can delete ONLY those channels that has been programmed in the scan
                            list already. I dont recall the STI allowing channels to be ADDED...only
                            deleted (by twisting the ch knob while the scan is stopped on it..)
                            ALL deleted channels can be put back in by cycling power (usually).

                            You can also restore all the deleted ch's by going out of scan and back in..

                            The deletes are only temporary for that scan session if that makes sense..
                            And as Chris said, I don't believe you can add any channels to the scan
