The 8800 is sweet for everything else that I use it for - repeaters, x-band
repeat (handy function!), simplex, you name it, but I never seemed to have
good success using it for satellite work. Maybe I need to pull it out again
and give it another try.
Like I said, I can’t make an accurate judgment on it since I have only used
it a few times. I do know that in my experience the receive sensitivity of
radios (of the same make/model) differ from radio to radio. I have 2
THG71As sitting on my desk that are proof of that. I have to use a certain
one for receive because the other one doesn’t produce as good results.
Just my 2 cents.....
