Alot of older multimodes already go to 28 /30mhz 10m without mods ,,I have just sold one a Midland 8001xt which actually goes from 25mhz to 30 mhz , also you have the original old President Lincoln (not the Lincoln 2) that is actually a 10 m radio which was converted into a 11m radio which goes up to about 29 mhz , original old President Jackson goes from 26mhz to the higher end of 28mhz there is many more if you actually research, so really you have a lot of older multimodes already for your needs without messing about try to covert one unless that's your thing, but you might find it harder going down that route as parts for older multimodes or even older ordinary CB is becoming scarce now .

hi i am looking for information on converting older multimode cb rigs to use on 28 30 mhz 10 meter band what whould you recomend thanks for looking stay safe do radio 73s paul m0kbd
I have started this on my ~40 year old Tristar 747.
Rather than get really invasive, I have programmed a little Arduino/si5375 box that sits on top and replace the PA socket with sma to feed the output of that box to replace the "LO" cristal on the crystal PCB. I thought about taking a feed from the LSB line ( 3kHZ offset ) but just have a "mode" indicator on the external box.
This potentially gives me 26-30 depending on tunning / lock range.
Is it worth it? - probably not but its great fun :-)
Dire warnings about some about phase noise if not using integers on the si board seem overblown.
