FT-847 Sub Tune

On my FT-847 I find that it takes forever to change the frequency using the sub-tune knob.  To find yourself try unlocking the tracking function, tune with the "big knob", then lock again after you find yourself.

I find the tuning rate of the FT-847 Sub Tune knob to be acceptable in the "fast" tuning mode.  Good enough for me because my initial TX frequency error is always less than 500 Hz after activating SatPC32 Doppler tuning and clicking the "Correct Actual (downconverter) Deviation" button while listening to the beacon.
