I read up on that N6BIL emulator box, it appears its' main purpose is to
emulate an FT-847 for software that does not support the 736.

This won't solve your manual tuning issue. 

A local buddy that uses a 736 does the manual tuning using the tuning

transponder SAT's
The 736 for transmit and a another radio for receive.
