As coming into the winter months again and LF is dominating for a while going to improve the LF options a bit.
I had used an IRF510 based PA based on http://www.gw3uep.ukfsn.org/25W_QTX/472_25W_QTX/472_kHz_25W_PA.htm with one of G3YXM/G0MRF's transmitters. I had played with transverters using 10MHz/30m and not the more usual 10m/30MHz. Antenna was an inverted L.
The bench certainly had a Graham VK3XDK 472KHz transverter for KX3 completed but not in an enclosure so I will have to pull it all together again and finish it off.
I note previously I had used 22mm or 25mm, http://m1kta-qrp.blogspot.com/2013/02/472khz-25w-pa.html cannot remember which, white PVC conduits as the LPF coil foms. I see there are some nice 3D printed LPF coil forms for 472KHz available so will try to source the STL files and take a look.
