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
