That is an VERY interesting idea, considering a tuner set on VHF 6 has an RF amp stage, tune a frequency band from 88 to possibly 94 mc with some creative tweaking, with a 6 mc wide passband out the IF link
Hmm now where's my spectrum analyzer. Oh that's right, I cant afford one
but there is SDR (software-defined radio) for the laptop
. I go stuff one of my several 1950-54 NIB Admiral tuners inside the S-C 435M 's FM chassis for a future project.
