A radio for transverter only use
I want to thank K9WK for this idea.
What about a 2 SCU radio that would be used for transverter support.
You would be able to connect 2 transverters and use them both at the same time for things like satellite work (2 - Q5 transverters).
It would be like a FLEX-6600 but only have 10dbm RF out and no band pass filters as they would not be required.
They would cover from 30khz - 54Mhz at transmit continuously at 10dbm. This would also allow them to be used for 2200M and 630M.
If you make it small, you could actually install it near the antennas resulting in less RF loss in feedlines.
By not having the power amplifiers and band pass filters it would reduce the cost of the radio (not sure how much). As well, maybe make it smaller.
Thanks Mark for the idea.
Thanks Mike! The cost of the 6600 could be reduced by eliminating the HF amplifier, low pass filters, and ATU. I would think a transverter only 6600 would make the ultimate driver for the best possible VHF/UHF/microwave rig at a lower cost.

That sounds like a very Flexible (see what I did there) idea and potentially opens the radios up to more bands, uses and users.
Seems like Flex development resources for us hamradio customers are very much limited. I would very much prefer Flex using them resources to sort out what should be working already.
