[amsat-bb] Best HT for satellite operation?

 When was the last time you were on the satellites? I had a Yaesu FT-51R
that was full duplex. I could transmit and hear the downlink of the
satellite simultaneously. The Kenwood D72 and the D7 also do it, or are you
going to toss some engineering stuff at us to say it's not so?

It is better to ask what HT's fit SAT OPs functionality:

Everyone wants 'full duplex', I've not seen a dual-band HT that can do
'real' RX while the PTT is pushed, period!
