I bought a MOT spectra 20w 900-MHz FM rig for about $50 on
e-bay. The seller programmed it for my desired ham frequencies
(about 8 channels) for free. Mainly use 927.5 MHz simplex.
If you want to operate CW/SSB on 902 or 903 MHz call DEMI with credit
card in hand.
What is hard is to find very many station on these bands.
I have my 900 station driving a MOT amp outputting 60w to 18-element
loop-yagi (google Directive Systems).
So the hardest part of mw is convincing anyone to move up here.
I am QRV from 500-KHz to 10-GHz.
hint - using a solder iron helps

Getting above 1 GHz isn't easy. Actually, 900 isn't that easy,
either. In fact, I'm looking for a clean IC910H with the L-band
module so I can do just as you suggest. :-)
