Usefulness of a VR-500 or -5000




Saw a Yaesu VR-500 (all-mode dc-1.2 GHz handheld rx) and VR-5000
(dc-S-band tabeltop RX) today at "OK" prices.

Anyone have comments on the usefulness of either for satellite use?  In
particular, the VR500 as the rx side of a portable Mode B, J and -S
setup? (yes, I know I need a converter as it doesn't cover 2.4 GHz)
