    It might be easier if you found an amplifier like the Hardrock 50. 3 to 4 watts out of the 1500 will drive the Hardrock 50 to 50 or 60 watts. Modifying the DX-60 would require a lot of work. Plus, you would need to retune the finals if you change frequency very much.

    And finally, the DX-60 does not cover 60,30,17 or 12 meters. Personally, I think it would be cheaper to buy or build a solid state amplifier.
