first thoughts on how to proceed

I encoutered somewhow this link to a ongoing project of someone to build a 60m tranceiver which remidned that I don't have that abilty It did not realy realy since I could not realy obtain a license for that band anyway

my second thoughts occoured after my thrid rereading of the site. namely why do I need a Tranciever at all? why not use the ft *47 to receive and a sepertate unit/antena to tranmit thus keeping me having to contantly deal the specail limits on power/anntena on the 60m band as I play with antennas, and the advantage that digital ft 847 would allow me to check the tranmisster I am planing on derectly

well this will chroncile a particular aspect of the Kosher hams efforts on HF

As Noted by now elsewhere one the "problem" iI have in creating a station with ful HF caps is that the Ft-847 i have used for year now on 6m and satelite is older than the ARS' 60 m allocation and I dislike modifng anything clthing radio I tend to prefer toget something new for the task rather alter anything since it goes as I wish it
