Hi Tony,

unfortunately not. For 4m I am using an internal Transverter for my K3 (made by EA7HG, IF 28MHz)

However, I have created a test configuration and checked it with my 7000DLE/ DB6NT 432 MHz transverter (fooling it, HI)

- I was able to hear a beacon on 432.473 with the reading of 70.473 MHz
- transverter noise did not decrease when changing the Frequency below 70 MHz
- I was able to transmit below 70 MHz, e.g. 69.950 MHz (in reality 431.950)

Hope that helps a little bit...

BTW: be very careful with the transverter output drive level, I use a 20dB attenuator!!
