I'll be heading to the Mike & Key Hamfest this weekend in Puyallup, WA, with enough spare change that I hope to be able to pick up my second HT. My first is a Baofeng UV5RA, which is nice for hitting local repeaters, but I have heard is not a great choice for hitting the birds. I have a very nice Elk log periodic dual-band antenna my family got me for Father's Day last year, so I'd really like a HT to pair with it.

What's a good radio for working satellites? Is the Kenwood TH-D72a still the acme?
