I still use mine, too. I keep it set up for part of a balloon tracking system for when I work with HS students on high altitude balloon experiments, which uses APRS. I remove the battery, which makes it fit on the portable setup that I use (2 radios, GPS, mapping software, TNC). Great rig. Always clear, always flawless comms.

>>Glen it was based on the 02AT.  NOT PC programmable.  It was made by Maxxon for Tandy.  It will also NEVER go out of the Ham bands no matter what someone puts on the Internet..  Good Radio!  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
