Flex 6000 Series Radio on 630 Meters

I have been toying with the idea of getting on the 630M band which should be available soon. The receiver seems to work just fine on that band but I am trying to figure out what to do for transmitting. I have looked into one transmitter kit for that band that requires an input of 5mw - 50mw at 952khz and it divides by two to give output on the 630M band. So will the 6700 have enough output on that freq to drive the amp? I think the spec says 0dbm typical but up to +15dbm. Can anyone provide some more information on this?

Thanks and 73,

Typical power output at 400kHz is around +10dBm but can vary by unit.  It can be a bit of a "your mileage may vary" at this frequency.   I pulled the cal report on your FLEX-6700 (SN ending 4111) and it was last calibrated on 11/21/16.  Here's your exciter power output by frequency in that range (in MHz):

This says you should be able to get 16mW or so out of the radio at 630M.
