The 847 does not allow dual in band operation. If you think about it you
would need very respectable filtering more than 100db isolation between
the transmitter and receiver to be able to pull this off. In effect you
are asking it to be a repeater. It can do this only when transmit and
receive frequencies are not on the same band because then it only has to
deal with the much smaller 3rd harmonic signal.
