Dear Friends,

I have done a lot of testing and the FT-847 has a
bug on the CAT interface which causes it to sometimes
"freak out" for no apparent reason. It returns garbage
in CAT commands and just doesn't will not work correctly.

This requires a power cycle to clear. There is no
chance of getting this fixed so you just have to be
aware of it when using computer control. Fortunately,
it does not seem to occur too often.
