I have an FT-847, as well (and probably quite a few of us do), so anyone
who has successfully set one up for 9600 TLM reception using MixW (or other
soundcard technology) is strongly encouraged to share how you did it!  Just

I eventually will be looking at what to use for digital operation on Echo
(a subject which is new territory for me).  I hope there is some good
suggestions (articles for the journal?) being developed.
