Re: What am I doing wrong?


The 847 WILL do crossband full duplex from any two bands on the rig. Which
include 10/15 mtrs. The rig has HF, 6, 2, 70cm. all modes. I am very happy
with it. I sold an ICOM IC-756 to buy the 847. I don't miss the 756 at all!
I recomend the 847 it is a great little rig.
