Hi Mike,

I use a VX-6R, but you can do the same to program your VX-7R for odd splits 
(your manual pg. 46).

1. in VFO mode, store your receive frequency into a memory channel (AO-51 V/U 
mode 435.300 MHz)

2. in VFO mode, turn to your transmit frequency (AO-51 V/U mode 145.920 MHz)

3. press and hold the MON/F key for a 1/2 second and release

4. withing 5 sec of performing step 3. dial to the memory channel number stored 
in step 1.

5. press and hold the PTT switch and then press the MON/F key to store the odd 
split frequency

6. your memory channel will show a +/- repeater shift indicating independently 
stored transmit/receive frequencies.

I've programmed several memory channels to compensate for doppler at 5 kHz 
intervals (AO-51 V/U mode 425.310, 425.305, 425.300, 425.295, 425.290)

I hope this helps.

I was wondering if anybody has used a Yaesu VX-7R for Satellite use? I'm having 
troubles programming it and was wonder if it was worth the investment in a USB 
cable and  software ? Thanks in advance !
