Good afternoon list readers ...from sunny Havana where we have just 
completed while ago
several AO27 QSO's ,despite a very poor location, sorrounded by buildings...
Anyway both CO6CBF /2 EL83tc  and CO2KK El 83tc, from my Nuevo Vedado 
QTH, it
was possible to work stations using the FT817 for receiving, with the 
help of a nice
GasFet preamp that Hector uses regularly with his portable station.

Now we want to try FO29, and need to know how to set up the FT817 so 
that when
it transmits on the 2 meters band, it then will receive on the 70 
centimeters downlink.
I have never operated the FT817 on two bands that way.... but once heard
that there was a way of making the rig do that .

Please send mail to coro at enet dot cu,and add a copy to arnaldo dot 
coro at gmail dot com

73 and DX plus see you all soon via satellite...
