You probably could modify a module for the new LF 475KHz band.

That won't offer you much help.
I'm sure the final amplifier stage, among other stages in the radio, wouldn't be able to pass 475KHz. The passband filters probably start cutting off the signals below around 1400KHz. Anything below that would never be transmitted without extensive reworking of the radio.
