This was my first amateur radio. I am pertty sure we bought it either the day of or the day after I got my the certificate of sucessful completion of my technician certificate. It was used extensively on the Houston area repeaters 146.66 and 147.080. I do not remember if I made any modifications to it at the moment, other than removing the "Radio Shack" label across the top of it. Please note this picture is NOT of the actual radio I had.
