I could be wrong (I hope not) but the FT-8x7 is not suitable for TX as you can't adjust the TX frequency while transmitting. The IC-7000 is OK in this respect, so maybe a IC-7000 / FT-817 combo? Otherwise I would suggest a IC-703 + transverter?

I'll be using a Yaesu FT-857D for transmit and an FT-718ND for receive.
