My Icom IC-706mkIIg transceiver has two output ports:
- one for its VHF/UHF bands (i.e. 2m/70cm)
- one for the HF bands, and also 6m!
I have a couple of broadband VHF/UHF antennas whose transmit specs include the 6m (50MHz) band, so I'd rather have the 6m band output on the VHF/UHF port. I understand for example that the Yaesu FT-817ND allows some configuration of which bands use which of its two ports, but do not see anything similar in my Icom's menu settings.
Is there any modification available to move 6m handling to the IC-706mk2g's VHF port, whether a setting I've missed, a jumper inside, or even some minor circuitry rework?
Otherwise could I accomplish this without undue loss — or expense! — via some combination of diplexers and/or other filters?
