For less than the price of an auto-tuning amplifier, you can buy two
manually-tuned ones.  Then with just a single additional relay, you can
instantly switch between two bands, even with a single radio.  (You have to 
automatic antenna switching, of course.)

One downside, however, is the added acoustic noise.  Look for quiet fans.
