    Hey folks, I'd like some input as to some options for best approach to expand frequencys on my Tram Titan 4 please... It's a bit tricky maybe, cos RX uses VFO setup basically.

    Surely someone has did it in the past and care to share some notes etc !!!

    Siltronix 90-6 seems a viable option for TX, but what about RX ?

    Yeah doubt it cause somehow I missed the part that since this base station has basically a seperate vfo for recieve, you have to go it at another angle ! I didn't really realize that totally but now I do since home with the VFO hooked up and now I'll need to address the RX from one of a couple ways. Either a Browning Receiver Crystal 31.720 or a set of other crystals which someone installed on my Titan 3 which gets me ch. 34-63 skipping 26-33 !
