[amsat-bb] AMSAT FD 2014 debrief

Makes perfect sense. I wonder why, when ISS is selected, 
SatPC32 does not
configure the radio to a single VFO with a non-standard 
repeater offset,
rather than loading 2M into both VFOs in satellite mode.
Should I have taken it out of Satellite mode manually?

Something to research.

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.
