Hi Tom,

There will be an article coming up in the AMSAT Journal on work that W1GHZ, 
W1FKF and I have done on tapping the common IF in the FT-817 and using the 
FunCube as a Panadapter. Our primary application is weak signal microwave.

I would think it would work well for satellite. That way your software would 
be controlling an FT-817. The common IF is centered on 68.33 MHz in the 
FT-817, so you see +/- 40 kHz around that. You would be able to take 
advantage of all the front end filtering in the FT-817.
