Title: Motorola MSF 5000 Repeaters
Post by: KC8FPC on January 30, 2013, 07:28:44 AM
I have recently came into possession of 2 UHF Motorola MSF 5000 repeaters.  They are both whole units, and with a little tuning and alignment will be ready for service.  Does anyone know of a place or person that can work on this equipment?  I have contacted many local radio shops and they can not help me.  I think this is because these repeaters need to be programmed with a Motorola Suitcase programmer.  I am pretty much game to take this to anyone east of the Mississippi at this point.

I can program the EPROM for a nominal fee. I ask $25 for each chip just to help pay for me keeping the suitcase going (30 year old equipment is starting to get shaky).  I can also help you tune if you're near south Florida, but I might be able to help long distance some other way if you have a service monitor.

I may be seeking a replacement code plug if there is a source out there.
Thanks,

I can make them.  Just used the R1801 last weekend.  Shoot me an email with your particulars and we can work something out.
