There aren't any satellites on 6M.

There's always the "old fashioned" solution, an HF receiver, an HF transmitter and a pair of converters or transverters.
They're still available for the microwave bands.

There must be older 2M and 70cM multimode rigs available used ( IC211E, TS700, IC202/404 etc) that will happily drive 
transverters for the higher bands and amplifiers for their own band.
