• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

I have a vintage Motorola Motorcycle radio, UHF Mocom 35, a 1970s vintage. I am seeking a wiring diagram. I did not obtain the control cably wires. I am seeking a digram of the control cables. I can make one out of a Mocom-70 radio control cable. The motorcycle unit uses plastic connectors as are used on the Syntor series radio. I think the motorcycle unit takea a blue and black plastic connector for the control but it is unknown what is used for the power. I need to know what color wires goes to what connector pin. I will gladly pay for such a manual or wiring print. Anyone got any info where I can obtain a old print? Thanks,
Joe

I recently spend several days trying to locate a manual for another Motorola product on the net with no success. I finally searched Ebay and found one within just a few minutes.

Here's what I found just now searching on mocom 70

The motorcycle control head might require a different search phrase.

Also, I suspect that the color coding of the wires would be the same for low, high, and uhf so any manual you can lay your hands on will probably tell what you want to know.

Yes. Perhaps you may have missed the point. I have the Mocom-70 manuals. It is the motorcycle manual am seeking. I have run "Motorola motorcycle" through several search engines without sucess. As you stated, I will follow the wire color codes which may be the same as the Mocom-70/Motrac, if I can get a print on the motorcycle head. Thanks,
Joe
