I think it would be a great project. In the ‘60s I built a solid state 2M transverter and it only had 100mW output but I worked 500 miles regularly with my little Skelton slot antenna. A sad story that another Ham stole my 100W Motorola rig I was going to turn into a linear amplifier but a couple of hand held 2M SSB rigs would be a blast.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I did build two 2M AM handhelds using the basic concept of the CQ Ham Tip rig (Superregen IF) and common audio for both RX/TX but with transistors (6 if I remember correctly). They were great for playing with VHF/UHF antennas while I waited for the opportunity to take the train to Customs House in San Francisco to take my General exam.

I wouldn't even care about AM. AM operation greatly increases the
complexity of thermal design. SSB would be all I would want -
especially with a good receiver!
