Hi all,

I like to share a project I recently made for my 2 FT-817's (which is 
compatible with the FT-857 en 897 too).
This controller connected to both radio's, (can be 2 different 8xx's 
too), will make a full satellite "rig".

It has pre programmed satellites with their frequencies and modes.
When selecting a satellite, both radio's are initialized as the uplink 
and downlink radio.
Also the controller will switch the microphone and headphone to the 
correct radio.
So no need for unplugging anymore.
