This transverter I started in 2010 and was completed after 4 years, free time problem.. Basically is OE9PMJ design adapted also for 70MHz/28MHz use.
In the future I would never use a single board for low signal and power amplifier. Is very difficult to avoid self oscillation. All amplifiers stages have high gain at this frequencies. Better is to use separately TX power board (shielded). Only one power transistor was used, one more stage can be found on the PCB (bypass or edit PCB file).
Gain distribution must be chosen with care for TX channel. Attention should be paid to the dynamic range of the amplifiers. They have to work linear and not compress the original signal. There may be a low rejection of the suppressed carrier (SSB) even if the original signal have good quality, this happen when TX mixer or other stage is overloaded.
