6700 with Kuhne up converter

I am building a station to allow me to access Es'Hail-2 (QO-100) the new geostationary satellite recently commissioned.  I am fortunate in that the footprint is great for me at either my UK or my Zimbabwean locations.

I am considering buying the MKU UP 2424 A, Oscar Phase 4 Up-Converter from Kuhne.

The specifications say that the 144Mhz input power should be 0.5w to 5w (adjustable).  
My question is will my Flex 6700 give me enough output on 2m to drive this or will I need an intervening power amplifier?

Advice would be greatly welcomed.

    Flex-6700 transverter port output specs state 0 dbm typical, +15db dbm max, (0.001 to 0.0316 watts).

    Thanks. That's what I guessed but I needed to be sure. I'll have to use my Icom rig instead but it will mean calculating the frequencies rather then programming them in!
