I don't have an FT-60, I have an FT-50 and use what the owners manual  
calls VFO Duplex Mode.
This allows one VFO to be on the xmit frequency and the other VFO to  
be on the receive frequency.
I looked at the online owners manual for your FT-60 and did not see  
the VFO Duplex option mentioned,
so you might want to set up memories for SO-67.
Here is a link to K6LCS's page showing how he set memories for AO-51  
on an FT-60:
Note that the freqs/tone shown for AO-51 are not correct for SO-67.  
You will have to plug in the correct frequencies yourself (don't  
forget the tone).
Note that there are a number of freqs plugged into the memory  
locations to allow for Doppler.
All that being said, I have not actually attempted operation through  
SO-67 (just listened). I just thought the information here might help  
get you started.
