with regard to the FT847:
it does great 9600 FM vhf/uhf. using the DataPort (mindin 6pin). I use it for Falconsat-3.
however, I have no joy for 9600 BPSK for SSB. which would require going thru
the I/O port (allows SSB signals), which does not allow the wider bandwith.
the I/O port works great for 1200bpsk on ssb, and of course PSK31.
if a petition gets going to ICON I would be interested.
