It appears that I goofed earlier. The FTM-400D will QSY to + or - offset 
as specified in an APRS beacon or object, including non-standard 
offsets. I had used e.g. C88 instead of C088 in an earlier test and that 
made all of the difference. When I use Tnnn or Cnnn, I can specify 
oddball offsets or directions. Sorry for the false alarm!

The FTM-400D is a nice radio, for voice and APRS. It also does digital 
C4FM FDMA. The FT1DR is pretty nice too, but doesn't appear to have the 
QSY feature.
