Hi Paul
I have a ts2000x ..nice radio despite what some might say.

I use a ME4T transverter with mine ...if you look in the equipment section on here you can see what I paid.
I went for the optional fans and stability crystal .....obviously bit more expensive than a spectrum transverter but no as expensive as a DB6NT transverter .

I used to use a 7100 but found that a bit deaf on 4m .

Nice thing about the ts2000 is that you can put it into transvert mode , which gives a max of 5w out ...ideal for the ME4T you can programme the display for direct read out on 70mhz...which is nice to have.
I also use my ts2000 to drive my 10ghz transverter.

ME4T has about a 0.8 db nf which is proberly not really necessary to have on 4m but again nice to have .
Look forward to working you on 4m some time
