70-1000X PROGRAMMING SYSTEM
YOU ASKED .......
"So why should I consider
buying your 70-1000X? I'm sure I could make one."
You quite possibly could
one. And to give you a flying start, we'll even help you by
laying out here the steps required to achieve a result like the SkyLine
In fifteen "simple" steps, it requires:
- Research and experimentation to determine which
parameters of the Syntech 1 radio are controlled by which pieces of
data in the Z-273 module - frequencies, CTCSS tones, timeout timer,
busy channel lockout, scanning,
the list goes on..
- Do the same for the Z-383 module used in the
70-336/526 8-channel radios.
- Do the same for the Z-350 module used in the
70-155/255 80-channel portable radios.
- Learning how to read and program EPROMs.
- Learning how reading/programming the Z-273 and
modules differs from a dealing with bare EPROM.
- Learning how reading/programming the Z-383
module differs from a dealing with bare EPROM or the Z-273/Z-350.
- Designing hardware circuitry to interface with
the Z-273 and provide the proper interface signals to/from the host PC.
- Writing the core software to drive the hardware
- Designing a printed circuit board to implement
- Build the hardware.
- Debug the hardware.
- Debug the software.
- Refining the software to present a credible
- Designing hardware circuitry to interface the
the Z-383. Build the interface. Test/debug.
- Testing, more testing, and still more testing.
Ever wonder why there is no other contemporary product filling this
role? None of these tasks is trivial. Most are quite
challenging. While many people could readily complete the
research, the software OR the
hardware, to produce a fully functioning product bundle is the
result of mixing the right skills with a lot of hard work and
persistence. If anyone thinks this is an easy task, we would
challenge them to produce a competing product and bring it to market.
