A good question.  Some people seem to get in effortlessly, others seldom if
at all.  I fall into the seldom category, though I had better luck today.
Someone suggested that perhaps my dilithium crystals needed realignment, so
I pulled out my calibrated deviation meter, and verified the PL is set as
recommended for the FT-847 at 700 Hz.  Next, I pulled out my counter with
GPS time base, and measured 66.961 Hz for the tone.  I am pretty certain
that an accuracy of .06% should be good enough.  ;)

I am wondering if it wants significantly more or less PL audio level.  It
shouldn't be too hard to rig up an external injection when the operation is
more frequent.  You have got to love satellite ops.  Always something
interesting to consider!
