OK, I promise that some day very soon I will quit asking questions and actually buy a rig but until then . . .

Can anybody tell me if there is the option of computer control for the FT-847?  Most of the high end rigs have an computer interface these days but the Yaesu web page is silent on the topic which makes me think it does not have this feature.  Anybody know for sure?

Yep, it sure does. From the Yaesu website:

http://www.yaesu.com/amateur/ft847tx.html

"* High-Speed Direct Computer Control Interfacing
Yaesu's CAT System for Computer Aided Transceiver control is provided via a rear-panel "DB-9" connector, and it includes a built-in RS-232C level converter. Just hook up your serial data cable, and you're ready for action! Data may be transferred at speeds of 4800, 9600, or even 57600 bps!"

I can also say as an owner of one that it does, in fact, have one <g>

Man, I looked all over for that link.  I sure wish the Yaesu site was as easy to navigate as Icom's.  Thanks for the info, I figure few rigs lack that feature these days.

I guess the next question in this thread would be to ask what software is available to control the
Yaesu FT 847?
