For a few years now I've asked Mirage/MFJ to create a sister to their very nice B310G FM/SSB [2m 3W in-100W out w/pre-amp
for HT use] it would be the D310G FM/SSB
[70cm 2W in-100W out w/pre-amp
for HT use]. To date no response.
The new FM SATs (starting with FOX1) will be using 70cm for the ground uplink to SAT.
I'm sure MFJ needs more requests to justify a new product. My request was to info and give MFJ plenty of R&D/testing time to be ready for a changing market when requests come after FOX1 hits orbit. The Mirage 70cm amp product line is very narrow/small today not accommodating the HT world very well!
Now if we want to make a logical big wish (snowballs chance in hell) request of Mirage/MFJ - how about a dual 2m/70cm AMP (combining a B310G & D310G all-in-one w/internal Duplexer) to support the growing dual band HT market and accommodating HT SAT OPs. However, I suspect the price tag for this AMP would take it out of reach for most of HAMdom.
