[amsat-bb] Does one 847 equal two 817's?

I see a lot of current portable transponder ops running two 
rigs (most likely 817's).  Folks seem to be unencumbered by 
the lack of tracking and Doppler coordination between the 
two radios. Dare I say it --  old school?

Despite the tracking and inverting capabilities, is there 
any reason I couldn't run my 847 in the same "mode", using 
the two separate VFO dials like two 817's and nothing else? 
Am I missing something?

Any one, from the various AMSAT portable ops, have a YouTube 
video showing _in detail_ how you are running two 817's?

Anyone else run your 847 this way?
