If the CAT indicator comes on, it means that the 847 is hearing commands
on the serial port well enough to recognize the "CAT on" command, so I
don't think the problem is with the serial parameters. 

It's gotta be something preventing the tuning commands from being issued
or honored. 

There's a known issue with early 874s (serial numbers prefeixed lower
than 8G05xxxx) being unable to respond to attempts to *read* the
freq/mode status of the radio; any software that depends on that
function working will have trouble with the early units. There's a
firmware upgrade available from Yaesu to resolve the issue.
