That is what I am gathering, so it sounds like I am going to need to look 
for an uplink radio as well.

This equipment is not for me - I am heading sat operations for Field Day, so 
I am trying to get us on the linear birds for the event.

Thanks for the responses!

As far as I have observed in operating the FT857's I have, CAT does not
update anything when in transmit mode.  My downlink radio updates at the
programmed frequency delta but my uplink radio only updates when you let go
of the PTT.

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me if when operating odd-split (rx on 440, then when you
press the PTT is switches to 2m.  Aka half-duplex) using the 857 if it is
possible to control not only the downlink, but also the uplink when you
press the PTT?
