145 MHz transverter

I found an interesting article in Funk magazine from May 1999.
It describes a 28 MHz to 145 MHz transverter.
Since I would like to use SSB modulation on 2 meter I am considering to make a transverter based on the schematic shown here:

My Yaesu FT450 can be used for the 28 MHz Intermediate Frequency processing.
Then all modulations (AM, FM, SSB, CW, digimodes) will come available.

I still have a power module M57719 (145 - 175 MHz) from Mitsubishi waiting to be used; this module can be used to boost the RF power of the transverter to a level of 14 Watts although I am not sure whether the power module can handle AM and SSB signals.
