Re: FT-847

Actually you do not need to use split frequency - just switch frequency when 
changing between TX and RX.

I can handle this at the moment with pretty well any radio - been using my 
FT-817 in this setup to work AO-51 cross-band but the fact that it is cross 
band is not important. I have a button on the software which you press to 
switch to TX (or you press F1).

This logic is needed because (in general) you cannot change frequency with 
Yaesu radios while transmitting (except when in SAT mode). So while 
transmitting you cannot compensate for Doppler so you have to load the new 
TX frequency before switching to TX.

There may be a more convoluted way of getting the FT-847 to do what's needed 
by switching in / out of SAT mode.

Anyway SPLIT will not really help either.
