The TH-F6a is *not* a true full-duplex radio. You can not hear anything on the other band when
you key the mic ...
The only currently available HT that does U/V and V/U sat modes well is the Kenwood TH-D72a,
at about $450.
SO ... Many are simply purchasing two "traditional" HTs to accomplish true, full-duplex satellite work.
I like the Yaesu FT-60R. Two of them plus an Arrow 146/437-10WBP antenna cost the same
amount as that Kenwood 'D72a!
