[amsat-bb] Programming software for FT-847?

Hi folks,

Any recommendations for configuration programming software for the Yeasu
FT-847?  Something similar to what Kenwood provides for their rigs -
basic configs (memory frequency, mode, etc.), and preferably free, but
nothing shows up on their site. 

I see that RT Systems has something, but my frustration level isn't high
enough to warrant buying both software and a special cable to do it.  I
was just trying to enter memory settings for AO-91 and AO-92, and
managed to overwrite the wrong memory channel...

There's a bit of "shareware" by WB8NUT, but I can't verify that it
actually works because until you buy it, it won't talk to the radio. 
Cheaper than the RT product, but I'm rather put off by its evaluation
terms.  No sale.

Nothing else comes up that seems viable (e.g. a website that still exists).

Any thoughts?
