I have seen ribless cables for the MCS2000. However there's another situation you should know about. I have 3 MCS radios. 2 front mount 900 radios, & a 100 watt trunk mount UHF radio. While I can program my 2 front mount radios with my cable that plugs into the mike jack, that same cable will NOT program the trunk mount radio from the mike jack. For that radio, I have to program through the acc jack on the bottom of the radio.

Don't know why, but that's the way it is. I use a Radio Stew rib with all my MCS radios.
