I'm assuming you're using InstantTune for your tuning. Early days but I'm
using (plagiarized from Tony AA2TX)...

;***** Satellite AO-40 P3D *************************************

The second section I've included for completess. Mode L/S won't be available
on the '847 without some modification for use with a transmit converter. The
above is being used successfully on a TS-2000 with both 70cm and 23cm
uplinks.
