The SkyLine 70-1000X programmer was designed to support both the Midland Syntech 1 radios AND the A.W.A. RT-85. Although both radios use the Z-273 EPROM module, the data storage is significantly different and the programming system needs to accommodate these differences. The Midland 70-1000 had no RT-85 capability until custom (non-Midland) firmware was installed. As a result, the purchase of a Midland 70-1000 did not imply the capability to program an RT-85, and if the unit was purchased from outside Australia there was an extremely high probability that it contained firmware which only supported Midland radios.
