While the VX7R is not duplex, It can be used for satellite contacts.
You do not need a programming cable as it can be programmed for separate
channels on TX and RX
And can be found in the manual how to do this.  I have used it many times to
demo satellites at
Hamfests and meetings where say AO-51 is going to have a decent pass to use.
You must announce that
You are using a hand held during your cq's so the big guns stand by for your
contact to be made.

I was wondering if anybody has used a Yaesu VX-7R for Satellite use? I'm
having troubles programming it and was wonder if it was worth the investment
in a USB cable and  software ? Thanks in advance !
