Radio shack got bitten bad by their 10-meter radio.

A lot of them were being modded for CB.

To make sure that didn't happen again, when the had the IC-2AT design changed into the HTX-202, they made sure to make it nearly impossible to mod it.

The end result was that the HTX-202 was/is nearly impervious to inter-mod.
