Excellent tip Jon!  I recently received my FT-847 Service Manual and saw the 
buffer amp you refer to in the transmit line. I was going to modify the 
feedback resistor for 9k6 to increase gain. I hadn't thought about checking 
that 9k6 and 1k2 receive data was available simultaneously......

I never liked running the EVM/RI with as high an output as I was. Time to get 
the Service Monitor out and reset deviation.
