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.
