    Randall, you'll do just fine in this hobby. Read a lot and seek advice from elmers in a local club.

    Yes, Randal got General.
    But there is a long way from Baofeng to these bands, IC-7851 will not help at all (at least for transmit) and as far as I know there is no much commercial equipment for these bands. Juma is making some kits... pretty affordable, but how about (efficient) antennas for these bands?

    According to Icom, the 7851 will transmit on 600m with a wideband modification - so will the 7100 and 7300.

    Are there any radios made that will work these two new bands?

    QRP-Labs sells components that you could use to get to 5W on either of those bands, and they sell the LPF kits for those bands as well. Their 5W PA module has everything needed for CW or FSK, and you just need to drive it with a DDS module run through an op-amp or single-FET amplifier stage.

    Once you are at the 5W level, getting to just about any other power level should be very simple. Most switching FETs can do 500kHz without breaking a sweat. The LPF you use out of that stage could use the same values at the QRP-Labs LPF, it would just need somewhat beefier caps and inductors. ;)

    I'm building an HF radio right now using their stuff for a large portion of the transmitter half.

    Elecraft K3 / K3S will receive and transmit on 630m with the KBPF3 option module.
    TX is low level and an amp would be needed...
