Note that the Scom factory still supports all of the 5K, 6K and 7K controllers, including spare parts stock.
The Scom corporate web site has a wealth of information on the Resources page at http://www.scomcontrollers.com/resource.shtml.
One trick that has been done to confuse folks that want to play with your system is to use a courtesy tone that is commonly used by another brand of controller. The ACC page at this web site has a PDF that describes the factory shipped courtesy beeps. They are included in the courtesy tones collection page (trust me - the "Nextel Beep" is cute, but becomes real annoying after a while).
The 2.04x version of the firmware for the 7K was developed by Vyex (from the Scom 7K 2.03x firmware) to fully integrate the new Digital Audio board with the 7K controller. A number of very useful features were added at the same time (like an IF-THEN-ELSE construct)... Support for all 2.04x issues is provided by Vyex, with contact information on their web page.

|Programming your Scom 5K, 6K or 7K repeater controller without a radio or a phone line The pre-7330 S-Com controllers do not have a serial port. Here's how to get around that. By Mike Morris WA6ILQ|
|Analog Audio Delay Module Schematic (ADM) This is the early analog delay module. Most had two of the pots sealed with glyptal - Don't mess with the sealed pots!|
|Digital Audio Delay Module Schematic (DADM) This is the later digital delay module. Switch setting info is here: http://www.scomcontrollers.com/dadmdoc.html.|
|Scom 7330 Board Layout This is worth printing on a color printer and putting inside the case of the controller.|
Various Technical Notes on Scom products:
Opinionated personal comment: I've never liked Hyperterminal and used Terminal.exe on Windows 2000 and XP until I discovered Teraterm (which is now up to version 4.71, released 31 August 2011), however version 3.1.3 is still found out on the web and is perfectly fine. Teraterm can be downloaded for free.
PuTTY is another option and is also a free download. It is a free (MIT-licensed) Win32 Telnet, Rlogin and SSH client that also happens to do plain serial.
