I have not tested it on satellites but the sensitivity on the sub-band is 
not good compared to the main-band.

To solve this you can enable the "lamp/squelch" button to be the PTT.
Now you can receive on the main-band and when pressing the "lamp/squelch" 
the PTT is x-mitting on the frequency you have on the sub-band.

This could be a solution for the bad sensitivity.
