Back in my good old (single) days, just out of college, that Motorola was the biggest chick magnate around. I would set that phone on the bar with my drink and have someone call me on it. Just like Billy Dee Williams used to say about Colt 45 “It Worked Every Time”.

I haven’t used it for a decade but I still got it. I heard before they changed signals that they brought big money because they were the still the best phone for getting signals and reception around.

Yeah, I remember when people paid good money just for a cell phone antenna to mount on their car, for similar reasons.

The old OnStar systems also used high power analog too, apparently you could call in areas that a contemporary cell phone couldn’t dream of finding a signal.

The nice thing about those phones is that they made a pretty decent weapon if the situation became unpleasant.
