Best suggestion... Go to amsat website and order the book  "getting started
in amateur satellites"  by Gould Smith, WA4SXM.  This book is a great primer
and answers all your questions.  The "what is the best radio?" question has
been answered so many times on the BB.  Look back at the archives of the BB
(also at the website) and find out.
Radios use are a personal item  -Portable?  Base?  Mobile?  
In the end, whatever you feel comfortable with using is THE radio to use.
Have fun...

I have seen several options for radios to use for satellite work. I am using
a Yeasu VX7 handheld and am hearing the satellite but not reaching them. I
would like to work all of the satellites. I am saving money and looking for
a radio. Once more what is the best radio to work the satellites and why do
you think this.
THANKS for the information in advance
