It would be much cheaper to pull the EEPROM out of the radio and ship it plus the control head to who ever you get to do the programming. The reason I say plus the control head is that there is a second program used to set the head up and what it displays.

You would be much better off setting up your own slow computer and doing the programming yourself. The computer needs to be under 800 MHz clock speed or so and have a serial port. No USB conversions here. You can modify the radio to add your own programming connection. You will need a RIB to go between the computer and the radio. Plus you will need one of the ham versions of the software.

Doing the actual programming is not that hard. It just takes time and learning how to navigate around the program.

the hardest part is going to be finding somebody that still has the programming adaptor cable that's close to you

If you only have one radio, I would add the programming connection to the existing control cable connector on the radio end. There is plenty of room and it is not that hard to get the connector open to do the soldering.

Go to the repeater builder site and find the Motorola section on the Syntor X9000. You should find a pile of information there on both the cabling, programming, control heads and diagrams. it's not that hard to do if you don't have one of the Y cable connectors.
