Hi Vince,

I did this last year. But I found a little difficult to control
properly the antenna over the tripod. I finally did a handle that I
can hold in one hand. I also tought that sometime I could installed
the Elk antenna in piggyback over my Meade LX-200 10' telescope. The
antenna is very lightweight, the telescope can be easly control to
track the satellite.... even remotely !!!
