It is $100 shipped, but you need to put it in a box with your own connectors and heat sink, etc.
It is Russian or Ukrainian made, I think.
If they stink, does anyone have any better suggestions that won't break the bank?

If it has two ports, one for tx and the other for rx, you may want to consider looking inside and seeing if it is easily modified to single port.
Another question, do you have other transverters?
Single port is easiest to interface to the single port on the Flex.
If it is dual port, and you don't want to modify the unit, then you will use a small relay to switch the single Flex XVTR port to the two ports on the transverter.
Next thing to consider is the power level needed to drive the transverter; hopefully is will take low level input, this is most desirable.
Last you will need to account for the PTT line. If you are running only a single transverter then it will be simple. For more that one transverter you may want to look into using the bias tee method to key PTT and let a single relay switch bands.
Some food for thought.
Congrats and welcome to the VHF world; some day when there is enhancement, we should be able to work.
Sorry I had troubles posting above and I am late to this.
I see the pre-built are on http://transverters-store.com/assembled_tr.htm
I apologize I was not up to speed on this. Want a converter but waiting on Demi.
Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
I bought one, tested on the bench with my sig gen and spectrum analyzer. Works as advertised!
I love the xvtr integration with the 6300. Don't push more than 2 Watts if you want linear operation. Anything over will go into compression. I use with a Mi Rage B310G. Again anything over about 50 Watts is fine for FM, but not for linear operation.

Mainly to be used for local repeater FM, and aurora work 2m ssb.
R.M. LA 145 VHF MOBILE AMPLIFIER 85W (135-175MHz)
ASSEMBLED 144-28 TRANSVERTER IN BOX
I bought both DEMI 50 watt transverters and no longer need this.
I also have a transverter store 432 that works good $50 shipped US.
And I have a 144 transverter store that works but developed an issue when it has been on for a while it will intermittenly go into transmit on its own. make an offer
Transmit worked great. Would not receive anything. I emailed to see if there was something internal that needed to be adjusted and got the response. "I test everything before shipping, I don't provide support" plugged it into another HF radio and got similar results. Transmit worked great, would not receive.
Finally I gave up and ordered a DEMI transverter and chalking the transverter store transverter as a loss.
