Hi Dave,

I have a TH-F6A and have worked several of the FM satellites using a 
hand-held 70cm beam with my HT for downlink and using a 2m mobile hooked to 
a groundplane vertical for uplink.

I use my TH-F6A for a variety of other things also like tracking high-power 
rockets, transmitter fox-hunting, packet radio,  APRS, etc.  It's an amazing 
little radio and I have no regrets about the purchase and use of it.  It has 
exeeded all of my expectations with room to spare!  Can't speak to the VX7R, 
but I do know several people with them and they like it just fine.

  I have a friend, Joe KJ4JIO, who is looking for his first HT to use for FM 
satellites. He is looking at the Kenwood TH-F6A and the Yaesu VX7R. Would 
anyone who has used these care to share some comments on them that I can 
share with him? I'm sure he would welcome comments about any other rigs you 
are fond of.
