The Syntor Adapter Board is much larger and the memory storage chip can be removed for programming in a standard programmer.
The MCX-100 Adapter Board is much smaller in size and utilizes surface mount components to fit into the MCX-100 with no modifications to the radio. The eeprom on the SAB is not removable and our MAB programming adapter must be used to program it.
Yes, the MAB will work in the Syntor, but it must be reprogrammed with the proper frequncy data to work with the Syntor.
No, it won't fit, unless you enjoy performing a tremendous amount of modifications to the radio housing.
No, the SAB is not compatible with the SYNTOR-X radios. Contact us if you need your SYNTOR-X reprogrammed.
We guarantee that the SAB is pin for pin compatible with the 82S129 & 82S131 Proms. It is up to you to verify the operation of your radio and to tune and align it for proper operation. Please see our Syntor Programming Limitations for more information.
No, the SAB is not compatible with the PL prom used in the SYNTOR multi-PL

You will need:
In order to program the SAB, you can either generate the information from scratch or use one of the software packages available on the Internet. We have tried the following software and both work with the SAB:
We have no connection with either supplier, we purchased the software like everyone else.
