    The ICOM V 80 is a rugged, basic 2 meter HT and here are the instructions to enable the MARS/CAP coverage.

    1. Remove both the antenna and the battery pack

    2. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the radio.

    3. Remove the nut on the BNC antenna jack.

    4. Carefully lift the front cover and disconnect the speaker plug.

    5. At the bottom right of the LCD Display near the power switch there is a single diode, remove it.

    6. Reassemble the radio in reverse order.

    Thats it, There is not even a need to reset, just turn on the radio and you will have coverage from 136Mhz to 174Mhz on TX and RX.
