[amsat-bb] Use of DR-735T for satellite

Just reading the mail on HT's that are usable for sat.  I have a 
Baofeng UV-5RA and std Arrow.

I am installing a brand new Alinco model DR-735T which is capable of 
cross-band operation (has two receivers and internal 
diplexer).  Haven't begun looking into operating details, as yet, but 
hope it is satellite usable.

It is a 50w-30w(adj)-5w dual-band radio with packet capability 
(1200baud only).  Its being installed in my new Ford F250 truck 
(diesel) for mobile while on extended trips towing a 5th wheel 
trailer (beginning in 2017).

I'm also wondering how well a dual-band Comet whip will do thru the 
satellites?  Also have a Par-Angle 2m Horz loop.  We should be 
traveling thru many rare grids in our travels to/from AK.  We will 
beacon 144.390 APRS on the road with 100-Hz PL for calling us.
