164 - 168MHz Radio Receiver

While up in Santa Cruz last weekend with my sister, Robert gave me a thingamajig he found in the University E-waste. I couldn't tell what it was, but once I got home and put power to it, it actually turned on (didn't expect it to work) and started scanning from 164MHz to 168MHz. I hooked it up to my 144MHz antenna and stepping through the channels for awhile, but never heard anything more impressive than static. From what I've found online, it looks to be a government band. Anyone know anything more about these frequencies?
