Well I'm suitably embarassed at not having seen the Leo Bodnar unit, especially as I looked it up as in the Uk. That said, I'm not sure I want to start opening the case of the 9700 to install itwhen as yet I haven't had a need. Now the meteor scatter thing... well that sounds pretty fiddly to setup and get the best out of.. I have to setup my g5500 rotator and antennas and then downtackle them on the days I use them. The age old problem of having space or neighbours and folk who don't mind. HF wire antennas are longer but easilier to do 'stealth' even if not massively efficient.
