Add a 2M transverter to my FLEX 6400

I would like to add a 2M transverter to my 6400.  Any recommendations as to which ones are compatible with my 6400.  What installation and operation with SmartSDR issues might I expect?  Are there any videos or documents about adding a transverter?  I'm running Ver 2 SmartSDR.

    I love the Elecraft Transverters. I have built many for customers. The only one that I would use.

    Elecraft 2m-xverters do not cover entire band and have an abysmal duty cycle. I sold mine and switched to the Q5 transverter.

    Look at transverters-store.com The assembled 2m transverter is $70 shipped. I have been using for about 2 months. Also I use a small 30 watt amp. Use just 2-3 watts to keep the IMD down. There is also a you tube video from a flex member about setup. Just search for transverters on the community to find.

    My video link above is using a product from the transverter store. It shows how to connect and set it up in SSDR

    Are there any 2 meter (or other) transverters for Flex 6000 series radios besides The Ukrainian transverters. Seems with all that is gone on over there makes it difficult to get one.

    Q5–quality build and excellent service.
