Hello Howard,
I just tested CAT steering of 2 Yaesu transceivers. Since I don't have a
FT-857 I made the test with my  FT-847 as "Radio 1" on the uhf antenna and
the FT-817 as "Radio 2" on the vhf antenna. That worked flawlessly also with
SSB sats. With FO-29 I could tune the FT-847 as RX  and the FT-817 as TX
followed, with VO-52 I could tune the FT-817, now the RX,  and the FT-847,
now as TX,  followed. Also the "Uplink Calibration" (menu "CAT")  was no
Lateron I configured the FT-817 as "Radio 1" and the  FT-847 as "Radio 2"
and that worked also flawlessly.

I will send you my setup with a separate mail off the list.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
