Just a note to tell you I bought one of these from KJ6KO about 
3-years ago for 1296.  With 29.5 volts and 10w drive I am seeing 70w 
output.  Since the amplifier is broadband tuned it may work at both 
1296 and 1269.  You probably should contact Greg for his experience 
in converting these amps; he would know how wide a band they perform 
over.  I heartily recommend these amps!
