Many thanks for the reply Doug.    It just sounded too good to be true, 
but a good thought at the time.

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.
