Loren......I use an Elk dual-band log periodic yagi with my FT-60R and works great. Doesnt need that diplexer, like the Arrow, but the price is just abit cheaper than the Arrow. Also breaks down into a nice package, and I made an ABS tube for mine to carry it in. Sort of an overkill, but at least it wont get crushed by an 18 wheeler. I used the HT/Elk setup on a 3 week vacation last month to back into Georgia, and worked quite a bit of grids locations and also stations with good success.
