Handheld for Echo and FM Sats?



With the launch of Echo, I have been thinking that I might sell my Yaesu
VX-1R and buy a full duplex handheld and Arrow II Satellite Antenna for
operation on the FM birds.

Which handhelds are suitable or recommended for working the birds? 

Are higher voltage battery packs for more transmitter power necessary or
desirable?

Does one need a headset to prevent feedback?

What else should I consider?
