MF/LF Dual Band SDR

Just an idea, what about a 2.000MHz local oscillator. For regular SDR purposes, this will and up at 500kHz centre frequency. Ok... not that surprising.
What about taking this 500kHz signal and use it as LO for another SDR setup. Well, that would provide as with a centre frequency of 125kHz.

Assuming a regular 48kH sampling, two interesting frequencies are in reach:
  • MF: 476-524kHz
  • LF: 101-149kHz
