This is  a little off subject . Need a little help.....

 Have been using a FT847 in PSK31 through a 
Rigblaster plus. The rig
Transmits in CW with the paddles and the internal keyer. Also works CW
The same without the keyer. When running USB PSK31 through the
Rigblaster the rig works without any problems. Taking the PSK31 cabling
Off the rig and reattaching the microphone, a MH31 hand mike, I get
Nothing out of the rig. I rechecked all menu settings. I rehooked the
Rigblaster back up to the FT847 and hooked the MH31 mike to the
Ribblaster mike port. In this configuration the radio transmits in
Sideband with no problems. On the FT847 Rig will not QSY with the buttons in
the MH31 when it is hooked
Directly to the FT847 but will function when it is plugged into the
Rigblaster. Anybody have any thoughts on this, or prior experience? I
Also tested the rig with another MH31 that works well on a FT1000D.
Same negative results on the FT847. I also tried using an MD-100 desk
Mic that works with the same FT1000D and tried that on the FT847 with
Negative results. I hate to tear into this rig without having some
Ideas as to what is going on. HELP.
