Hi Bruce,
Good solid information! A couple of quick things.....

In the second sentence I believe you meant TX on USB and RX on LSB???

There is an undocumented key sequence to avoid having to press all the keys 
you suggest on the FT-736R.
Once you have selected SAT mode, and pressed MR to get into memory mode, you 
then select the memory channel pair you want with the channel knob. THEN 
simply press F/C then VFO. This will transfer your memory pair onto VFO's and 
leave you in VFO mode also ready to tune!
