FT847 inadvertant transmit



Has anyone on the net experienced unwanted transmit on the FT 847
transceiver?  The FT 726 and 736 had a very undesired habit of 
transmitting for just a few milliseconds when first turned on.  Of course
this takes out transverters and converters now popular for 2401 MHz downlink.
The 847 requires an external 12 volt supply.  This bad habit might not 
occur when the on/off switch is activated with 12 volts applied but has
anyone made hard core measurements?    Cliff K7RR
