I'd *love* to see a kit, something suitable for beginners (and more of an
assembly of large parts and not so much soldering) such as the Elecrafts for
HF — but for a small SSB rig suitable for full-duplex satellite use on VHF
and UHF. It still amazes me that the IC-W32A is the only recent crossband HT
like that.

So get to designing! Maybe if you reached out to the Elecraft folk they'd
give you some ideas.
