    Are there any rigs available that come with vfo coverage (not channelized coverage) of the 60 meter band ?
    Looking for rigs that do not have to be modified, but rather have this capability straight from the factory.

    Pretty much any SDR will do so. It's the Software that decides.

    My TenTec OmniVII covers the band. 73, WA7BBI

    Since you can only legally use the channels, why do you need / want a VFO ?

    1. so you can receive anywhere.

    2. there is a strong possibility a part of that band will become not channelized in the near future.

    My old icom only requires a single diode to be cut for 1-30mhz coverage. Yes it's a modification, but it's the only object on the board and can be done with a pair of snips reaching in through the air vent if you didn't want to open the radio.

    The Elecraft K3/K3S should meet your needs.

    Plus you would never get the stability needed to stay in the center of the channel and meet the strict occupied BW requirements for 60 M.
    I hope the band remains channelized. Things are bad enough with the immature behavior on the rest of the ham bands with adjacent channel interference.

    The US would keep the 5 channels we have. The additional 15kHz is separate, continuously tuneable. And international. And low powered.

    My Yaesu FT -897D will VFO tune 60 meters.
