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.
Is that because the radio lacks some sort of certification or are
you assuming that the original poster lacks a business band license?
Wouldn't the radio have to be type accepted (or whatever it's called) to be
used on the business band?
