There are other "cheap" options to get active on 10 meters then these 
discontinued radios, most cb transmitters can easely be retuned to 10 
meters by changing a xtal and many modern cb models can even do it with 
a jumper mod. These transmitters might not be as good in filtering as we 
are used to but they are not very expencive and would work just fine to 
transmit psk31 or mcw etc.
