Hi Glenn
I will agree with Ronny. The 202 was built strictly for the ham band with no out of band receive or transmit. It had an exceptional RX front end rejection of out of band junk compared to today's radios. 
By today's radios it is big but it works great, I still use mine. I've had to replace the micro battery inside but it's still ticking.

If you want programming for a radio cross ship me your 202 and all the toys with it and I'll ship you a UV-5R  with big antenna, battery, and speaker mic.  No problem.  The 202 is a much better radio IMO.  And I have 2 UV5Rs.    K4RJJ Ronny
