Introduction:

The information on this page is presented strictly to help identify Syntor X and Syntor X 9000 trunking radios. Nothing else on this web site deals with these trunking radios. All of the trunking Syntor X Personality Boards, control heads, cables, memory modules and possibly the Common Circuits Boards are not compatible with any conventional Syntor X radios. The trunking Syntor X 9000 radio is really the trunking Syntor X Smartnet Dual Operation radio with a new control head and cable. Other than the Motorola programmers, I do not know of any way to program any of these trunking radios.

These were early trunking radios that had special hardware just for trunking. This special trunking hardware is not compatible with conventional radios. The hardware includes radio cables and control heads. Later trunking radios like the Spectra have the same components in both conventional and trunking radios (the difference in the Spectra is in the software). The Syntor X 9000E came closer to the Spectra integrated design, as it only has an added plug in trunking option board and a special trunking U501 chip.

The conventional Syntor X T45VBJ7000AK 800 MHz radio is not listed on this page. It is listed with the other conventional Syntor X radios.

The conventional Syntor X 9000 T45KEJ7J04AK 800 MHz radio and Syntor X 9000E radios are not listed on this page. They are listed with the conventional Syntor X 9000 radios. The UHF Syntor X 9000E and 800 MHz Syntor X 9000E radios are really trunking radios, but they can be converted into conventional radios (without any board swapping) which is why they are not included on this page.

Trunking and conventional Syntor X and Syntor X 9000 Personality Boards can be swapped between trunking and conventional radios (some radios also require a Common Circuits Board swap). This swapping can convert a trunking radio into a conventional radio or vice versa. This can result in radios that do not match their label (i.e. a conventional radio can have a trunking label on it or vice versa). Sometimes you have to open the radio and take a look to determine what it really is. If the Personality Board part number is in the table above or it does not match any of the Syntor X model boards or Syntor X 9000 model boards then you have a trunking radio. If you can not find the Personality Board part number tag then use the component outlines on the Syntor X jumper locator drawings or Syntor X 9000 jumper locator drawings to identify the conventional boards. None of the trunking Syntor X or trunking Syntor X 9000 Personality Boards match the parts layouts of any Personality Board drawings on this web site. So if none of the Personality Boards parts layouts match then it is trunking. The Syntor X trunking radios also have two circuit boards mounted upside down, above the Personality Board (these are only for trunking radios and are removed if a trunking radio is converted into a conventional radio). Keep in mind that conventional Syntor X radios can have an HLN4270A Interface Board, an HLN4270B Interface Board, an HLN4425A DVP Interface Board, an HLN4728A Hand Held Control Head (HHCH) Interface Board or a Transmitter Buffer Board (low band radios only) mounted upside down above the Personality Board.

FYI, the trunking Syntor X 9000E uses the exact same Personality Board as the conventional Syntor X 9000 radio (the U501 chip has different firmware). As previously mentioned, the trunking Syntor X 9000 is based on a trunking Syntor X, which has is totally different Personality Board than the conventional Syntor X 9000 and trunking Syntor X 9000E radios.

Different models of these radios use completely different control head interfaces, so trunking control heads are usually not compatible between different models of trunking radios. Some radios have optional configurations that allow them to use control heads from different types of trunking radios.

According to the manual, the Dual Operation radios (i.e. Trunking with Conventional) only allow up to 10 conventional modes to be programmed. It does not say if trunking modes must also be programmed or not?

HCN1032 Control Head:

The HCN1032 control head merits special mention. This control head only looks like a normal Systems 9000 control head. The case, buttons, internal Display Board and the individual parts from the internal Control Board (except for U1, U6 and the printed circuit board) are compatible with other Systems 9000 heads. The incompatible hardware parts are U1 is specially programed for this control head and U6 is a digital volume control chip (all the other X 9000 or X 9000E radios have their own internal digital volume controls inside the radio). The HCN1032 is missing a busy line and reset line, it uses hard wired PTT control lines, runs the serial link at 949.2 baud and has a volume control chip U6. A normal Systems 9000 control head has a bidirectional busy line, bidirectional reset line, uses serial link commands to control the PTT, runs the serial link at 9600 baud and has no U6 volume control chip. The HCN1032 uses two microprocessor control pins for its unique U6 volume control chip, which are normally used for the busy line interface that is missing from this control head (another reason why U1 is an incompatible part). Both the HCN1032 and other Systems 9000 control heads use the exact same radio to control head cable.

While it might be possible to modify the HCN1032 hardware to make it work like a normal Systems 9000 control head (this type of modification would include cutting and rerouting PC board traces to newly added components). This hardware/firmware conversion would ultimately require replacing the U1 microprocessor which is NLA from Motorola. It makes far more sense to use these HCN1032 control heads with the above Syntor X 9000 trunking radios or as parts for Systems 9000 control heads.

The HCN1032 also does not have the ignition sense go to the control head microprocessor. It goes to the output pin 33 called PTT Enable instead. On a normal Systems 9000 control head pin 33 is reset. Pin 26 is used for PTT out, while a normal Systems 9000 head will use this pin for the busy line.

The HCN1032 (i.e. trunking Syntor X 9000) uses differential, bidirectional asynchronous serial communication (without a busy line) at 949.2 baud with no reset line. This control head would appear to be the parent of the later Systems 9000 control heads.

The normal Systems 9000 (i.e. conventional Syntor X 9000 / trunking Syntor X 9000E) communication scheme is RS-422 differential, bidirectional, asynchronous serial communication with a bidirectional busy line at 9600 baud with a reset line. The Systems 9000 control heads are used by the conventional Syntor X 9000 and trunking Syntor X 9000E (there are many variations and part numbers for these control heads). Addditional Systems 9000 information is located here.

Just to throw out the information for comparison (and to highlight how totally different it is), the MaraTrac advanced control head uses directional, synchronous serial communication with a clock line and without a busy line. Because the serial data is synchronous, the clock line signal strictly determines the data transfer speed and bit timing. An asynchronous serial communication system has no clock line and uses predetermined speeds combined with special start and stop bit coding. The MaraTrac has no hope at all of ever connecting directly to any Systems 9000 bus (special hardware that can work with and translate/bridge both MaraTrac and Systems 9000 would be required).

As you can see from the three previous serial data transfer type descriptions, none of them (i.e. trunking Syntor X 9000, conventional Syntor X 9000 / trunking Syntor X 9000E, or MaraTrac) are compatible with each other.

I do not have any programming information on the HCN1032 control head. I do not know how easy or hard it may be to convert a Syntor X Trunked Smartnet Dual Operation radio into a Syntor X 9000 Trunked Smartnet Dual Operation radio. It may be as simple as putting the Syntor X 9000 cable and HCN1032 control head on the trunking Syntor X radio and reprogramming them both?

The 68P80100W89-A manual (TS5) has the schematic for the HCN1032D control head. Big thanks go to Clint Beckett WB3EHB for locating this manual with the HCN1032 control head service documentation. It was a long search after Motorola Parts ID came up dry. By the way, Motorola Parts ID has been an invaluable help to me and countless others so many times I think we can forgive them for missing one single part number to manual connection.
