The Yaesu FT857D is a single frequency radio. There is no way to use it as you intend. The priority channel jumps between 2 frequencies, but transmit on the VFO (not priority) frequency.

With a dedicated rig for 2m, yes. With a dual band, it's likely
that whatever band has PTT control on the front is the band that
will transmit via the audio connections out the back to the
I believe there are some radios that let you specify which bands
go out, but I'm not personally familiar with the 857D.

Is it possible to listen to other bands while using the 144.39 to
xmit/rcv aprs packets?
Anyone experienced in doing this I've tried for some reason my
packets get cut off or xmit fully on the other freq I'm listening
I've tried such things as priority channel either way etc.
And yes a dedicated 2m or xband rig is being considered.
