Reason I am asking is it is easier to get FM rigs for 220, 900 and 1.2 than getting SSB.
Most serious VHF/UHF'ers are going to be running transverters for those bands, using an HF rig as the IF.
Downeast Microwave, DB6NT and others sell ready-to-go units, so I don't know about FM being "easier"...cheaper, very likely
