I have one of the first 100 released at Dayton, and have not done any 
firmware upgrades yet. It is useless as a full duplex satellite radio, as 
the amount of desense is greater than the satellite downlink most of the 
time. Neat radio otherwise, and I've used the 1.2 GHz with my hamfest buddy 
quite often.

If you can find a FT-530 Yaesu used, they are the best full duplex satellite 
HT I've ever used. A used Kenwood D7 would be almost as good, plus you could 
use it for APRS while not on the satellites, or for use with the ISS. You 
can always go the two radio route as well. A simple 2m HT and a small 435 
scanner or HT can be had for very little!

Good Luck,
Drew KO4MA
