A while back I posted a note for a friend I was trying to help where SATPC32 
would not doppler tune his FT-847. SATPCISS worked fine and he was able to 
tune the radio using the UP/DWN buttons on the SATPC32 screen.

We finally have figured it out. His radio is one of the very early FT-847's 
which did not allow the VFO to be polled. There was a mod being done by 
Vertex, but a call to them came up empty. They have not done a mod since 
2000 and they have no parts left.

So, any one know if the mod can be done somehow?
