Hi John, good to know you were a past owner of the Dynatac 6000X phone. Were pretty expensive in their day.
Where are you located ? Cheers, Chris.

Hi. I now realise that this handset that I have is actually not a standard Dynatac 6000 handset at all.
The one I have is a special version, specifically designed to work with the Motorola extended hands free vehicle installation kit that worked in conjunction with a Microtac phone.
It does need a special type of transceiver to work correctly.
This handset was connected to the 3w transceiver and the Microtac at the same time, using a special interface.
The 3w transceiver took on the identity of the connected Microtac phone, the handset controlling the Microtac remotely.
Pretty complicated stuff ! I have yet to get all the parts for this system.

The main difference with this handset compared to a Dynatac 6000 one is it has two different buttons, NAME & MENU.
There is no Dynatac 6000 label on the front of the handset, and the handset is all black, no chrome parts.

I have just bought an actual Dynatac 6000XL transportable phone. Will post pics of this when I get it.
Cheers, Chris.

Hi. Thought I would update this phone entry somewhat.
I now realise that the handset I have pictured here is a Minitac 6800XL extended system handset, but without the Minitac label on it. The reason I had so much trouble with it working correctly was all to do with the type of transceiver I was originally using it with. It will only work correctly with the correct extended system transceiver that has different firmware in it.
This is definitely not a 6000X handset at all. Perhaps I should just remove this whole entry all together ? Kind of misleading...
Chris.

Thank you Thomas for uploading the excellent sales brochure for this & the other Motorola phones !
These brochures are very rare, do you have the original copies yourself ?
Very nice...

Hi Chris,

I have the original sales brochures. I bought them a few years ago and have some more (Motorola, Nokia, Siemens and Philips) which I will upload soon. Have you seen the DynaTAC article from 1973? These old magazines are very curious. :D

Best regards
Thomas
