Why doesn't somebody make a dual band 2m/70cm amp for the FT-817 and include all modes, SSB, Data, and FM?  The Mirage BD-35 is FM only?

Well for me, SSB and CW on 2M/70CM is operated on separate antennas, so I use separate amplifiers since I need to switch the coax anyway. And from the station setups I have seen, it is a common set up. Where as FM only amps are common to amplify dual band HTs.

Very limited mark for that item. FM far more popular.

well you can buy a 400 watt 2m amp and a 100 watt 440 amp, that do all modes, but why not just buy an FT 857, same radio buy higher power?  save all that extra stuff.
