I use the 857 installed in my truck to work sats, full duplex with 
SDRplay for receive. It works quite well and should be fully automated 
with CAT control if I could get the software to play nice once and for 

No reason you couldn't take the 857 portable if you have a good power 
source - it even has a nice flip down stand to elevate the front when 
you put it on a flat surface.

Go for it!
