I've got a lot of notes from others that came off a CD I copied from
wd5bzo.  Most of them are for the "G" model, however I lot of it
applies to the "T" as well.  I haven't gotten to the point of
conversion yet, however from what I see, there is really not a lot to
it.  80 meters is a bit more involved, however it can be done with
ease.  FT-243 crystals or a VFO like a Johnson 122 can be used with
very little modification to the capacitive divider network in the
oscillator.  I've already ordered a bunch of crystals from Bry Carling
for 160 and 80 meters.

I'll post these files off the CD to my website soon if I can get
permission from Dave/QCU and a few others first, as I've got the space
for it.
