Hi Joe

In answer to your question YES.

Managed a contact through it last week at a range of 2700Km using a tri-band
colinear 10m above ground, no pre-amp and a Kenwood TS2000 running 50W.
Location here is 10m above sea level.

Not easy but it can be done!!

Subject: [amsat-bb] FO-29 Minimum antenna system to work.

Has anyone tried working FO-29 with egg beaters or other omni 
directional array? I have plenty of power and a good preamp. I have yet 
to put my yagi's together (after my last move) and wonder if I can 
cobble together something that will work.
