A while back I purchased an Icom V8000 with the mars cap conversion (136-174

The V8000 transmitter will only output on the 2m band. Its
receiver already tunes 136 to 174 MHz, stock.
With the "mars cap conversion" claimed by the author, the V8000 will
both transmit and receive in the range 136 - 174MHz. It's use on
"business band" is then possible, but not legal, without regard to the
power supply selected.
