RE: FT-847 discontinued?


True, there are other options such as the DEM TIB.  However, much like being
able to set the deviation of FM as easily as you set power output or SSB
modulation, it would just be easier, and cheaper, if the manufacturers would
just do it right to begin with.  ;)   Also, low level TX outputs and direct
RX inputs lend themselves more easily to satellite L, S, and above mode
equipment.  The full duplex operations have a few extra wrinkles lacking in

It will be interesting to see what develops with the SDR-1000.  N4HY has
solid experience in both camps, and I bet the SDR-1000 could be developed
into an outstanding full duplex home satellite station.
