Sorry Bry, Can't help you on this one. Only modified (moved down) a
Motorola HT-220 from marine band (156 mhz) to two meters about 6 years ago
after my dad got a Saber 2 from his harbor pilot office. I just took one of
the radio's plus some nicads & a charger from the office before they turned
in all the old HT-220's for resale. Nobody minded me having one and thats
how I got my 2M HT on the cheap. (a. k. a. free)

Some help from the local Motorola repair place and I had my 6 channel HT
going on 5 repeaters plus 146.52 simplex. Not bad for a 1W/5W radio!
