[amsat-bb] VHF/UHF Transverter?

Absolutely!  That's actually how I started out on the RS birds...  Had a set
of Drake B-line twins for HF, and got hold of the matching SC-2 receive
converter and TC-2 transverter. Had a wire dipole in the attic for the 10
and 15 meter downlinks, and built a 2-meter turnstile for the uplink.  Not
sure if the 7300 has an output for a transverter, but with the power turned
down (and attenuators, if needed), go nuts! Not being full-duplex will
present some challenges (you could always use the 7300 for the uplink and an
RTL-SDR for receive...)

I've been doing FM satellites for quite some time, and I am wondering if
there is a cheap way to get into linear satellites.  Could I use a
transverter for VHF and UHF?  I have an IC-7300 for HF.  Could I just hook
that up to a transverter and it would put out RF on VHF and UHF?
