[amsat-bb] Does one 847 equal two 817's?

I see a lot of current portable transponder ops running two
rigs (most likely 817's). Folks seem to be unencumbered by
the lack of tracking and Doppler coordination between the
two radios. Dare I say it -- old school?
Despite the tracking and inverting capabilities, is there
any reason I couldn't run my 847 in the same "mode", using
the two separate VFO dials like two 817's and nothing else?
Am I missing something?
Any one, from the various AMSAT portable ops, have a YouTube
video showing _in detail_ how you are running two 817's?
Anyone else run your 847 this way?
