Interesting the comments on HRD and the slow sat swap. I have not seen
that here on any of my 3 XP machines. I have not tried it on the Vista
I do have a problem with the TX contol while in satellite mode and my
FT-847. Pushing the TX makes the radio start blinking and then shows
error in the
display. Only way to get out of it is to turn the radio off. Wondering
if anyone else has seen this problem.
