Please take the FT817 with you and op on AO7 and VO52.  You will have no problem working those birds with that radio and antenna.  Not to mention, Those of us on those birds will have a opportunity to work you. :)

Subject: [amsat-bb] Portable SSB satellite operation advice requested

Hi all,
Later this month I hope to be trying some satellite operation from a boat 
rom the seas around Scotland, Norway and up inside the Arctic circle.
I have my trusty Kenwood TDH7 and Arrow combination for possible FM use but 
ave been wondering whether to take an FT817 for SSB transmit  and perhaps a 
H-F6A/F7E for receive.
I would appreciate any advice on the suitability/practicability  of the 
atter combination..it has the advantage of being already available!
