Hi,

It has been done over and over again from the time of earliest vacuum tube gear right up to recent days. It is a viable concept. See how you can use plug-in band changes on the newest gear:)

At some point I wonder if it would be possible to build QRP to moderate power TX stages at low enough cost, that rather than using relays or other filter switching methods for a multi band transceiver, you could just have a separate final RF power transistor and filter for each band. Just turn on the output section for the band you are interested in. Hopefully the filter sections could be designed so they could just be common connected together for the antenna connection.
