I have two Baofengs. They work great for SO-50. I can copy the bird nearly from AOS to LOS. Mine are the UV-3R models. By no means are they my "go-to" satellite radios but they are neat toys. If you were using them for uplink I'd say forget it. With all the new stations on SO-50 these days QRM'ing and calling CQ, you need all the power you can get!
The Alinco DJ F1T I have is a 5 watt radio and I have the capability to have AZ and El control of my antennas although I don't think I'll install the elevation rotator at present. I may just do the portable camera tripod deal out on my deck but I've never been a big fan of that. If everyone would operate full duplex as they should the QRM would be greatly reduced. I know there aren't many full duplex radios around anymore but with the price of the radios we are talking about, anyone should be abler to get a second one to allow them to do full duplex.
