i am running the Yeasu FT-736R. it supports 6/2/440/1200. its the best Sat rig ever made and you can find good ones for under $600.

From: Sebastian [email protected] Subject: [amsat-bb] Re: Satellite Transceiver To: "AMSAT BB" [email protected] Date: Friday, April 3, 2009, 8:35 PM I have a Kenwood TS-2000, but was disappointed about the birdy on 436.795, which makes both SO-50 and AO-27 unusable.
Now if that doesn't bother you, the 2000 is a great radio.
However, I wanted to have a dedicated satellite radio, and I decided to go with the Icom IC-910H.
I guess it all depends. If you are looking for a radio that will do HF & VHF/UHF and satellites, and aren't too concerned about using those two birds, then go with the 2000. You can't beat it for the money.
If you want to have a rig that was designed specifically for satellite work, and if you already have an HF rig, then the 910H is for you.
There are other older radios available, but I personally like to stay with rigs that are still in production.
