I should have known that if it was easy, the web would be full of modification methods.
I have an HW 101 that has been on the shelf for a few years. My chances of ever using anything above 28.5 MHz are pretty slim but I like to work 10 MHz and 18 MHz occasionally. Particularly to avoid contests.
It seemed like a good idea at the time, I suppose the smart thing to do is sell it to someone who appreciates it and apply the money towards some other piece of ham gear I cannot live without.
