I found the problem.  I had to factory reset the FT-847 to get it to work.  It is apparently a known issue that the FT-847 can get hung up if certain conditions exist.  It is working now.  I am using SatPC-32.

 If you are using
 HRD's sat program, it will not tune an FT-847

 I have used my 847
 with cat control without problem.  So far today, the 847
 will not transmit in sat mode but works fine
 when not in sat mode.  Anyone
 have any
 quick suggestion?  I am hearing all satelite great but,
 satellite mode, The TX indicator comes on
 but no actual power.  I would like
 to make
 my 1 contact before Field day is over.  Thank,
