Does somebody know whether one can recognize by the serial number of the FT-847 whether it is an old, uni-directional or a newer, bi-directional vrsion? A user here in Germany has two FT-847 with serial
numbers 3M840064 and OE320084.

The FT-847 was first made in 1998 and the bi-directional problem was fixed that first year... only serial numbers starting with 8C, 8D, 8E, and 8F would be uni-directional.
