IF FREQUENCY UPPER SIDE OF 70CM AND 2METERS

I know that Elecraft, DEMI etc. transverters can operate on the upper ends (FM) of both 70cm and 2m.  What would that translate to in terms of IF frequency for the FLEX 6300 for each band.  I also know that the FLEX 6300 can transmit up to 31.999 MHz.  Would I be able to transmit up 149 MHz or 449 MHz with a transverter with this limitation on 10 meters?  I can't find any Community conversations on this topic.  
Thanks

This is no problem for the 6300. With a 118 MHz LO in the transverter and Banp-pass filters accordingly , You can use 26-32 MHz IF on the FLEX for a 144-150 MHz output.

The same for 70 cm band is even easery.  Ask Sandra Estevez, K4SME at
Down East Microwave Inc for it.

Do I need to use DEMI transverter or will the Elecraft XV144 or XV432 also work?  Also my question, more specifically, would be if I wante to work 148 MHz or 445 MHz what would this translate to in IF frequency from the FLEX?

Have another question, does that mean I can use my flex with a Transverter to access my local club repeater?

There is no limitation of the XVTR IF on the FLEX-6000s.  Anywhere it can receive, it can transmit.
