>From everything I've read, the 736R has a fine receiver. The only
issue with using it with satellites today is if you want to use
computer control, the CAT port is unidirectional. You can send
frequency updates to it, but not read the frequency data from the
radio. The limitation that introduces is you can't use the tuning knob
to tune around the passband, you'll have to use the controls in
SatPC32 (or other software).
