With my ARR 28 MHz preamp sitting here beside me and plenty of plans for
antennas, I have a few more questions:
1) Can I really pick up AO-7 with my antique Allied Communications tube
receiver if I put the preamp at the antenna?
2) How much EIRP do I need on the uplink? Can I use my IC-706 barefoot, or
am I looking at a Mirage amp? I think the 706 puts out 50 watts on 2
meters. I'd probably be using a 3 element beam for uplink with something
like 9? db gain. I think I saw something like a 90 watt EIRP would be
sufficient for the uplink.
Thanks for everyones help so far!

antenna up in the supercold weather here in PA, or is that just an urban
