Meter Transceiver

Amateur Radio Satellites, how can I talk on one with my 2 meter?

I have had a Technician license for quite some time now but haven't talked in a while. I have a Vertex VX-150 Handheld 2 Meter Transceiver and I was interested in how to pickup/talk via Amateur satellites. They are just like repeaters right? How could I do this?

AMSAT have the answers you need.

You generally need full-duplex cross-band capability.
