You could also use the first mirror frequency
When the DUC is set to 44 MHz you get a signal at 44 Mhz and a mirror at
128-44=84 Mhz. (second niquist zone)

84 Mhz is as low as you can go with this setup, but maybe 84 MHz is
close enough to 70 for you to use.

(You would need a bandfilter to only keep this "mirror")
