I to have this same question as well , but for the FT100d , as it does not have
software ( when will yaesu get a clue ? ) to do this and it really sucks to have
to manually program all those memory positions ( yes I plan on filling it full )
, and I would like to learn somehow to control this and my FT847 from my pc
using java , but as I have said in the past the software writing part is not my
forte' just a desire ....

So , anyone willing to share their experiences and or fruits of their labors ? 

Someday I want to be a programmer ( read: some day I want to be a fireman ;^} )
but till then there is always shareware :)

And yes I do pay for some of them ......
