A few points:


1.  HRD lists the FT-847 as a supported radio.  So you should be OK, there -- the FT-847 _does_ support computer control (CAT).

3.  If your computer has a serial port, you may need an adapter to converter the serial-port voltage levels to the FT-847 CAT levels.  If your computer has a USB port, you can use the adapter cable you'll find when you search eBay for

. . .    FT-847 CAT

4.  If the SignaLink has a 6-pin "mini-DIN" plug, it will probably work on the FT-847 _if_ the FT-847 has a "data jack" with a 6--in mini-DIN socket.

5.  Read this article -- you may need just DM780 (the HRD digital-modes program), not the full-blown HRD CAT package:
