Hi Drew, here is my mobile setup for AO-40 mode U/S. I´ve worked lot of 
stations using this little gear:

UPLINK: Kenwood TM-455 with my comet SBB-5 dual band mobile antenna (fixed
on the roof of my car).

DOWNLINK: Kenwood TH-F7E HT with a pair of earbuds + Wimo PA-13R-20 Flat
Panel Antenna (33cm x 33cm) with a DB6NT converter.


And this is my RX-only portable station for AO-40 mode S:

Best 73 from Spain,

Pedro EB4DKA
