Actually, up-conversion has the advantage of fewer potential for birdies
from harmonics of the oscillators. Most of the better transceivers use
an IF higher than the Fo.
I have no experience with the 10m radio you mentioned, but it sounds
like your project has potential. Additional circuitry could be built into a
housing extension, replacing the bottom cover? The down side, It
could cost more than buying a used HF multi-band rig, but that idea
never scared any hot rodders from building. Sounds like a neat

: i have used transverter for years (made some as well) from 10M to 40M it can
