Beamline 3-3 at SSRL was very good in this range. I made Mg K-edge  
XAFS measurements there many times. I do not know if this is one of  
the beamlines that was shuttered during the SSRL upgrade though.

There is also a chance that the Double Crystal Monochromator beamline  
at the SRC could make this measurement. I don't know what the lower  
limit is but I have done Si XAFS there 1.8 keV so it is close. You  
might check into that.
