Re: FT-847 replace, now bandscope display

 I thought I could use my IC-7000 for a very-near realtime band scope. It 
works sorta, there doesn't appear to be  enough gain on FO-29 with an oscar 
class station  to  show a good graph on the display. You will see strong 
stations but not all, including the beacon.  I will test further, with 
hopefully more stations using the bird over the weekend.
