This unit is a standard PHILCO auto radio modified to listen to the radio amateurs 40m band and VHF from 120 to 170MHz.

During 2006 we had several issues and criminality increased and I decided to make a receiver to listen to the cops, since it was analog transmission, FM modulated at 160MHz band. Below you can see some pictures. The AGC was modified and I included a S-Meter on the unit, and VHF pre amplifier (commom base configuration) . After a while I made a wood cabinet, to include a power supply.


At the left you can see the 108MHz trap and at the right side the 176MHz trap.
