I can, and regularly do, change my transmit frequency while transmitting on these 817s. Very nice! I don't know if that is possible with computer control, but the "big" knob on the front will do that.
One of the nice features of the old FT-780R is the switch on the back of the rig that allows one to activate a "SAT" mode which allows one to switch between having the transmitter changing frequency during transmit and having it locked during transmit. This is a nice feature; one gets the best of both worlds. I would think this would be easy to implement in software with today's modern radios. - Duffey
