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.
