Personality Boards:

The conventional Syntor X 9000 and trunking Syntor X 9000E use the same Personality Boards. The board part numbers are HLN4925 (earlier boards) and HLN5299 (later boards). For "normal" use these boards only have slight differences depending on the board part number and its revision letter. For special options that go beyond "normal" use, the HLN5299 has lots more optional capabilities built in (just compare the boards in the jumper table below). The Personality Board has the radio connector on it and is the external interface for the radio.

The Syntor X 9000 was a significant departure from previous radio models. For one thing, the Systems 9000 bus allowed the Rx volume control to be moved inside the radio drawer and remotely controlled from the control head. Older radio models placed the volume control inside the control head and routed the actual Rx audio signal from the radio drawer, through the control head and back into the radio drawer. This basic change is why the Personality Board J1 pin 33 Option Rx Audio connection was added to the Syntor X 9000. Older Systems 90 and Systems 90*s radio models would rewire the control head audio signal path routing for options like Securenet. If you look at the Securenet example, when clear audio is being received J1 pin 2 audio is sent to the speaker, but when encrypted audio is being received J1 pin 2 audio has encrypted audio and only the Securenet hardware has decrypted audio. The old way was to rewire the control head so all J1 pin 2 audio is processed by the Securenet option, sent to the control head volume control and then back to the radio drawer. Since the audio volume control connection was now buried inside the Syntor X 9000 radio drawer and not run through the control head, the old method of rewiring the control head audio connections no longer worked. So, the Option Rx Audio connection was added and its Rx audio path is remotely configured/selected via the Systems 9000 bus. Now any optional accessory that has to process the receive audio or inject its own audio signal (this used to be called Sidetone on older radio models) into the radio speaker, has a way to do it, without having to rewire the control head. Other than the microphone Tx audio input, older radio models used to have dedicated input lines for specialized types of Tx modulation (i.e. external Tx PL/DPL, Securenet Tx, etc.). These additional dedicated old style connections have been combined into the Syntor X 9000 J1 pin 3 Option Tx Audio line, with the Systems 9000 bus configuring/selecting the actual Tx modulation audio path. Another Systems 9000 change is J1 pin 1 PTT is not connected to the control head any longer. Now the control head sends serial data over the Systems 9000 bus to tell the radio drawer and any Systems 9000 options when the microphone PTT has been pressed or released.

As a result of this significant design departure, almost all the Syntor X 9000 options have their own internal microprocessor built into them to communicate with the Systems 9000 bus. The exception is the old PAC vehicle repeater, which uses the Personality Board J1 pin 1 PTT line to transmit through the radio drawer because it does not have a Systems 9000 microprocessor.

The low band seems to be picky about the compensation adjustment, much more than the VHF, UHF or 800 MHz radios. The low band does use a unique reference modulation circuit not found in the other radios. The compensation adjustment instructions are in the front part of the low band manual under the "Maintenance and Troubleshooting" section and is really easy to do after you find R628 hiding near a corner of the RF board. The problem I ran into was I could not adjust the deviation on one radio above 4.6 KHz until after I did the Compensation adjustment (the deviation pot was at maximum). After the compensation adjustment I had to turn the deviation adjustment down to get it below 5 KHz deviation.

Common Circuits Boards:

Here is a part number list of the Syntor X 9000 Common Circuits Boards.

The common circuits board has the Tx power and Tx current limit adjustment controls on it.

The Low Band and VHF Common Circuits Boards have no jumpers. The UHF boards have jumpers JU900 and JU901 and the 800 MHz boards have jumpers JU950 and JU951. No information is provided on any optional settings or configurations for these jumpers so they do not appear to be meant to be changed.

Some Syntor X 9000 radios have a ground jumper wire attached to the common circuits board and the chassis. Radios with this jumper wire cannot be used in a positive ground installation. These radios are supposed to have a sticker inside on the chassis near the common circuits board that has a negative ground installation only warning. If one of these radios is installed in a positive ground vehicle, exepct the radio to be heavily damaged (PC board copper traces on the common circuits board will probably be vaporized as the main 40 amp power fuse blows).
